Larger K-nex like parts for pre-K

I just discovered that the K-nex like building set I have isn't K-nex!  The pieces I have are larger and are made of a softer material.  They work well for children in the 2-5 yo range.  Would anyone know what these pieces are called?   The 1000 pieces of K-nex are going to have to wait a few years..... Thank you in advance.

k-line arduino project, speed and brake light

Hello. I have a simple task to achieve, I guess, but I'm stuck. I'm using the setup from the attached image. All I need to do is to read the Speed of the vehicle using data from the obd2 k-line pin, and then to send a command to blink the brake lights when a certain decrease in speed is detected (e.g. more than 2km/h/s). I can not initialize the k-line and I am not able to red anything on the serial monitor on arduino :(. After I manage to read the raw data I am planing to figure out what's the code for turning on the brake lights by just simply pressing the brake pedal. The vehicle is an 2004 BMW E60, but I guess this is not an issue. Question... Are the TX/RX pins connected as it shod on the arduino board? Thank you. Ant help would be appreciated. I need this for a school project and a have a deadline :(((

How to Exclude K'NEX Forum Topics In Search?

I'm subscribed to the Forum RSS Feed but I hate getting K'NEX gun topics all the time. And I can't just put "-k'nex" in the search box and subscribe to that because a lot of them just say gun and not k'nex at all, even though they are k'nex gun topics. How would I exclude k'nex topics in a search then?

K'nex UZI

Designing an Uzi. I did, and it was jammy, bulky and ugly. Here are a couple of pics. The main problem with an Uzi is the magazine is the handle, and u have to have the trigger before the handle. I ended up making one, using a small flexi rod, but it is weak and it wasn't autocock. The magazine was good, but it had a really flimsy connection. Would anyone else try and make an Uzi??? (I'll add more pictures real soon)

A K'nex Revolver????

What would you guys think of a working K'nex revolver replica? I mean like a 6-shooter?With a chamber and everything? I'm still trying to find something to do for my first Instructable but I don't want it to have been done before. So far as I know there isn't one. There are a couple of revolvers but they are not based on any real guns. Or I am just a weird-o and have never seen an 8-shooter.

Duncan's Easy, Random Pistol

Meh, I was on a building spree and kept morphing a gun until I eventually came to this. After I was all done, I finally realized that I pretty much wasted my time because I accomplished nothing. Meh, it's a cool and different gun nonetheless, but it's nothing to get hyped over either. I was bored so I made a video for it anyways seeing how I haven't done that in a while. Enjoy. <br>

Indoor War- What weapons?

I've observed that the majority of people think range (and reliability though this seems to be taken way too seriously) wins wars outdoors. So what would you choose for a weapon if it were indoors with a few walls and corners, tables and other cover, and probably the largest room being no larger than 20x20 meters? Just curious. I was thinking that for this reason, I'd like to come up with a shotgun. I have an idea floating in my head if anyone wants to hear it as I can't build it for the obvious usual reasons.

Which motor has the most torque? (K'nex)? Answered

Hi there I'm in the process of developing a K'nex new ball machine lift, but the current motor I am using (the TT one 2 speed- the one below) does not have enough torque to drive the axle. I was wondering which motor is best suitable and has a larger amount of torque. I was thinking the 12V one with the adapter, but since I don't own one yet, I cannot test one. So my question is which motor has the most torque?

Well it's getting kind of annoying to go around asking people or just not being in the know of who's doing what so I had the bestest idea evah!!! Make a thread!! Lik ZOMG!!! Anyways, yeah just post whenever you're making something new and talk about the following. -What you're making -What features it'll have -If and when it'll be posted -And finally any pictures you may have (not required though) And keep it to K'nex please. This is the K'nex forum after all so I'd think that's obvious.

K'nex Concepts 14

Turret-Fed Shotgun: A 3 barreled shotgun, each barrel capable of 50 feet of range, that strikes 3 rounds out of a TR-18 turret simultaneously. One trigger pulls all the blocks at the same time during firing. One master pin pulls back the 3 firing pins. It is also important to note that the blocks should just barely touch the firing pins because there will be 3 times as much pressure for the trigger to overcome as a typical gun because there are 3 blocks. -by Oblivitus This concept has also been posted to: https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Concepts/

What kind of K'nex gun would you like to see?

I was just wondering what kind of K'nex gun you would like to see next. I've been wanting to make a gun people would like to see, but I never really have any inspiration. So I decided to ask y'all what you want. I might just be able to make something out of it. And also just for other people to see what you want ofcourse. Cause i think we all agree about the fact we don't need any more regular pistols.
