Introduction: Catastropha Knex Ball Machine Update

Picture of Catastropha Knex Ball Machine Update

Hi everyone,
This is a upedate of the ball machine I'm making, coz it'll take a while till I'm finished, coz I ran out of Pieces. I used a lot of lifts yet, 1 is new and two others I invented before. I n total there are so far 8 Lifts. The new lift is an invertad chainsaw lift where the ball touches the ground.
It has bislong 4 1/2 paths and 2 mini paths.
I hope you'll like it!

neat, but what are the mouseball and stair lift for? Are they even connected to the machine?

Sorunome (author)bumboozer2010-11-26

They will be connected in future. I just put them in so you know how big the ball machine shall be about.

smart so don't run out of pieces /-(

take apart the lifts and make it a bit smaller so you can make it stronger and don't ran out of pieces!!!

Sorunome (author)Tom Buckey2010-11-25

knexsuperbuilderfreak (author)2010-11-24

you might be able to finish it if you make drops and they go into a basket somewhere maybe..

Yeah, but cristmas is soon!

Tornado96 (author)2010-11-21

Great half done ball machine! I love the labeled switches. I wish I had the classic motors with long cords. :-(

Can't wait to see it finished!

Sorunome (author)Tornado962010-11-21

The best thing is that the balls roll over the labled switches!

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2010-11-21

Over the switches or a path over the motors?

Shadowman39 (author)Tornado962010-11-21

If you look at the picture of the switches closely, there's a gray rod underneath that keeps the ball on the battery packs. And there's a track leading into and out of it.

Tornado96 (author)Shadowman392010-11-21

Oh cool

Sorunome (author)Tornado962010-11-22

I also like it!

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2010-11-22

You should :-P
I've got some good news for you. I only need to complete the last lift before the first update of Dragon Jewel. :-)
