Introduction: Renovative: Ball Machine Elements
Hello fellow builders! I just thought that after I posted my new ball machine Renovative, I would put up the elements that I used for this ball machine. Hope you enjoy!
Step 1: Ball Storage
This element is only somewhat of a ball machine element. Its not really part of any path, but its used for storing the balls away when you finish the days worth of ball machine entertainment.
Step 2: Tracks
Basic tracks of the usual, that's all.....with the usual yellow 5-way connectors, blue rods, green rods, and rarely any white rods.
Step 3: Lift
This is your ordinary chain lift. It has been changed, tested and replaced only a couple of times. It is nothing fancy, but just regular. Please note: Sometimes it is very hard to make a chain lift, so always have backup ideas in mind for when the lift does not work.
Step 4: Starter
The starter ( what I call it ) is the beginning of the balls journey through this big ball machine. This element has a short slide then a green flexi rod slide. This element is designed to give the ball a little force before moving on.
Step 5: Path Switcher
You all know the basic purpose of the path switcher and what it does. This path switcher has a small chance that it will stay on that path 1-2 times. Trust me, I've tested it and it happened couple of times.
Step 6: Drop-and-roll! Path 1
This is my Drop-and-roll! knex element. It is kind of like a dropper, but afterwards, it rolls on, on the element! Thas how it work!
Step 7: Hole Drop, Path 2
It drops through a hole and drops onna wheel dropper and heads to the lift. Simple.
Step 8: Push Up Lift: Path 2
Although this is a lift, this is an ending-type lift, meaning a lift at the end of the path.
Step 9: Thas All!
I hope you enjoyed and will see you guys ''knex'' time in my next Instructables! Bye for now!
