K'nex Ball Machine - Helios

Introduction: K'nex Ball Machine - Helios

About: Finally back to life. Probably won't be on much on 'ibles, but I'll be fairly active on Discord (PartMan#7123) - feel free to chat on the Flux! Oh, and I would like to apologize for being so cringy years ago.

My first actual ball machine, and my second construction after I got the Big Ball Factory. It works surprisingly well, especially considering that I was the one who cobbled it together.

The elements, unfortunately, are not original. I've borrowed sandroknexmaster's Horizontal Clickers and austron's Half-Pipe, along with the Spiral, the lift, and some parts of the Loop from the Big Ball Factory. The only new element I've introduced is the 2x2 Dropper, an element which can drop balls with either side up and randomly deposits them on either side.

Thanks for watching!
