how would you make a gatling gun out of knex? Answered

I was experimenting and i made a 8 barrel turret for a machine gun and i wanted to know if the are any more ways that you can fit more on than just 8?and also i would be great if you had a image.

Does anyone know of a good knex machine gun that fires rods rapidly and uses relatively few pieces to build? Answered

 Most of the automatic guns on site either fire rubber bands, need cocking before each shot, or take more pieces than I have. Do any of you have even ideas for something like this? If not, I guess I have something to work on!

want help with a possible future steampunk instructible

okay, so i want to make a steampunk contraption.  at first it was going to be a spring loaded gun like the derringer thing in sherlock holmes but with a huge gun (i actually have feasible plans in my head for that one.)  but it drifted off to make an even bigger gun.   i thought, and came up with an awesome idea. a retractable Gatling gun arm.  the gun will move forward, and backward, and will spin around. i made a 3d example to show what i mean, if i can figure out how to post it.

New Instructables

Hey y'all. I'm announcing my newest instructables. First, I'm posting a Gatling gun. Next I am posting my very first semi-automatic rifle based off of the M107 (pic below). It gets a range of only 15 feet but some of you geniuses can figure out how to make it better. Finally, I'm building the Brickster V2 SLDS. It will be about 2x longer and the bow will have only 2 strings. Expect the Gatling gun within a week and the others to follow within a month.

True trigger full auto/burst fire knex gatling gun

True trigger, allows control of firing rate. Vids show full auto and burst fire. *note* my motor is nearly out of batteries in the video, so on full auto it's rate of fire was pretty slow.******* Pic 3 & 4 - New and improved yellow rod firing gatling gun. Uses grey rod barrel and grey rod firing rams. Also because it is so huge, to prevent sagging in the support beam, I made a new support system which doesn't bend at all ( you can see how thick and straight it is), so it spins faster and steadier than before. Each bullet gets about 35+ feet. All thx to having more pieces.

What knex gun should I build next?

I am trying to figure out which gun I want to build next. I have thought of 4 knex guns that have very promising designs in my opinion but don't have the time or parts to build all at once. Here is what I am wanting to build.  A Trench gun. Shell ejection, pump action and all. A f2000. Fully automatic, large mag with red dot sight. A hand held gatling with high bullet capitivity. ( Not a hand held gatling with a rod and a rubber band on each bullet holder thing like a bunch of tiny guns.) A folding mounted turret with VERY high bullet capitivity. None of these guns will need modified pieces that I can tell from my on paper plans. I would just like to see which of these everyone would be most excited to see. Don't be shy. Let me know what you think. Pics are in order of what I said them in.

Machine Gun Concepts

This is for posting pictures of Non-Chain-Fed machine guns that anyone has thought of, and to discuss the designs. So far Oodalumps' is the only one who has created a Non-Chain-Fed machine gun, which is good, but the ammo is fired vertically, reducing range and power. The other type of Non-Chain-Fed machine gun is the Gatling gun, but it has a low magazine capacity. Perfect Duck's machine gun was almost perfect (could you post some pics if you rebuild it?), except that it was bulky. Below is a picture of a gun I am working on.

Help making laser trip wire with LED counter

I have seen a few different laser trip wire instructables here, but they are usually for triggering a nerf device or other projectiles. I am interested in a laser trip wire that would count objects as the laser beam was broken, and display the count on an LED screen. I was wondering if someone would be kind enough to create an instructable for this. This has real world applications, such as counting cases moving along a conveyor line. I would like to use an arduino with a shield for this, and be able to plug it into an outlet. I am a complete Noob when it comes to arduinos. This is a project that I would like to get my feet wet with. I learn best by working on something that interest me. I know it isn't as much fun as a nerf Gatling gun, but it would get plenty of use every day.

How do you make a complicated, fully automatic pen gun that fires BB's?

     Looking from all pen gun instructables, none is trully fully automatic. I came up with the idea of turning a small crank to pull the firing mechanism then release repeatedly. It's kinda' like a gatling gun. But at my disposal are a few HBW pens and no available nor acquirable Bic pens which are wide enough for BB's. I know how to widen HBW pens for BB's but then it's labor intensive. I need another solution. And by the way, people keep talking about loading up a pen with a gravity feed then blowing as hard as I can through the input hole 2, and BB's would spray out the business end. It appears everything here is too simple, so title changed! Don't give me the previous described method.

What was your first EVER gun that you made?

Heh my first ever attempt at a gun was 2 grey rods and a ton of orange connectors connecting the grey rods making a barrel. then i strapped on a rubberband for power put a grey rod in the barrel pulled on it at the other end along with the rubberband and Walah! My first ever Knex gun. My next design was the same thing except with a firing pin. Then after that a trigger then a very premature handle. The funny thing is that my first gun was probably the most powerful out of all my guns...pretty much ever. Then i stumbled upon Instructables finding first the amazing killerk gun then my guns took a step forward and now i am creating crossbows gatling guns sniper rifles shotguns and all of those types of guns.

Fan made Iron Man suit is pretty freakin' great

Anthony Le is such a fan of Iron Man that he built his own War Machine outfit. Based on concept sketches from before Iron Man 2 hit theaters, Le's suit has a motorized faceplate that flips up and down and a spinning Gatling gun on his shoulder. It's an amazing build and took Le a month to make at a cost of $4,000. Great job! Le, a fitness consultant, studied some concept sketches of the suit posted on the Internet. He used thin, high-impact urethane for the armor, cutting it into plates and joining them with some 1,500 rivets and washers. He sculpted a clay helmet mold and then used a liquid resin mix to create the final product. But that was just cosmetic work. He also added a small servo motor that opens the faceplate, as in the movie, and built a gun out of pipes and a motor. LEDs in the eyes and chest-plate further add to the illusion. You Built What?! A Real Iron Man Suit

These are just a couple of my creations that I never posted. I'm don't have most of them anymore, so don't even ask for me to post. Hope you like them! 1 And 2 are my gatling gun. This was a great gun, but the motor was not powerful enough to push the triggers. I liked it because it had the switch for the motor build right onto the handle. 3 And 4 are my version of spider massacre. It was a great gun, it shot 60 feet with 2 rubberbands (the ones on in the picture). 5 And 6 are a really good magazine I made. 7 Is my modded dd-27. It was not a big mod, but it is still one of my favorite guns. 8 Is my Semi-Auto. This was a excellent gun, but took a while to reload. 9: The front of my modded Pineapplebob's sniper. This mod helped a lot. 10 is my sniper. Silentassasin actually made a Instructable for this one. 11 and 12: A really old mod of foresthell12's gun. it was excellent.

Can you make this game?

I am working on a game last 7 years. I need coders for making this game. I will just give you game idea, you will do the job and you will gain the money. I am played all of games and watching game videos everyday. So game designing is my job, you just read my idea. This game will be a turn based strategy, MMO, open world, crafting, starving, pvp, pve, dungeon blah blah game. I cant make this game as a board game bcause it is too complex and requires calculations. So it cant be funny as a board game bcause causes headache. This game has an unique combat system and strange classes and races like turtle, rhino, ninja, runner, mantis...... So you can play as everything. Some characters can fly, swim, run; depends on what you are playing as. Every turn everybody moves at same time. After that everybody attacks to each other at same time. And cycle repeats. You can order to your character "be that much near to target" and it always tries to be that much near to enemy. Server does this calculation automaticly. Lets see what i designed: CYBER Cyber is a robot looks like human but its made all of steel. So its metalic gray colored. Its dark. It is a serial killer. Hates everything, even itself. He is male but he have no gender. His strongest attack is COMET CANNON. Causes a explosion which will kill the target and damage the who arounds it. Cyber can kill its friends while shooting stuff. ZERO POINT is stronger than Comet Cannon and if you shoot it you will lose all of your HP so this spell consumes HP; its deals same damage to everyone in explosion and this spell always deals damage but enemies will divide damage with their FLE so enemies with high FLE will take less damage. After Zero Point; damaged tiles will damage to who stay on them with heat. GATLING GUN spell deals damage with bullets. Damage will be increased every turn but its MP cost will also increase. You cant move while shooting with Gatling Gun. Also nothing will miss you while you using this spell but %100 of your FLE will become DMG. And your movespeed will become your HIT but only half of it. Also while using this noisy spells your hiding will decrease so enemies can see you from even more faraway. Cyber uses bullets and rockets while using its spells and it gets out of ammo. Ammo will refill 10 turns after an empty turn(nothing attacks you and you attack to nothing). Gatling Gun deals area damage so you can shoot many targets at same time. PAILDRAMON GUNS: If you still didnt mention all of Cyber spells are stolen from digimon and gunslinger of Ragnarök online so this skill is same. So he takes rifles from inside of his calfs and shoot the enemy. You cant use this spell if you moved this turn so you cant move. You can shoot the target until miss it so this spell can be used again after you used it if it hits target. It has more hit than Gatling Gun and it can only shoot 1 target. TWIN STINGERS: you shoot 2 stingers from your nipples. Its a divided attack but stingers must be locked to same target. If they miss target, next turn they will try to hit it again. Enemy can attack to stingers for destroying them but stingers have 0 HP and %500 of your FLE also you must destroy stingers 1 by 1. ROCKET RAIN: using this spell causes you to use all of your ammo. You release all of your firepower as mini stingers. They will randomly attack every enemy they can reach. Missed stingers will hit each other and get destroyed. This attack have high HIT but low DMG. ROCKET STRIKE: you shoot a giant rocket from your arm. Its most basic attack of cyber but it costs too much MP and ammo and have low HIT, but still great for dealing damage to 1 enemy and killing full damage build noobies. PUNCH CANNON: cyber can longer his arms for punching enemy. Really stupid but requires no ammo; also it is ranged. JET BLOW: cyber flies really fast by using his jets and punches enemy from its belly. Bcause of he is so badass, blood comes out from enemy’s body. This spell gets used for reaching enemy and starts melee fight. PUNCH: you punch the enemy. If you dont miss, you can punch next turn. You can only punch three times in a combo, so after that Punch goes cooldown. Bcause of his Punches reducing targets FLE for next turn and dealing massive damage and also dealing damage to targets MP; its Punches consumes too much MP. If you can Punch enemy 3 times after each other; 3rd punch will make enemy unable to move. ENERGY SHIELD: the robot creates an energy field like every mechs doing in Sci-Fi movies so why not? When enemy attacks you it will hit your MP with multiplied by %150 damage. If you turn off your shield you will lose all of your MP and MPR, HPR for next turn and you will gain +%50 HIT, +%50 FLE. The turn after that turn your MP will comeback so you can use your spells again. Also shield will turn off when you reach 0 MP. Than next 2 turns you cant turn on your shield. LIGHTNING JOLT: if you use this spell after turning off Energy Shield you will deal +%50 more damage. And your unexist mana can be consumed for this skill. You shoot lightning which one deals damage to all enemies. If there is less enemy it will deal more damage. This lightning will firstly damage enemy’s FLE for next turn and if it can make FLE 0, than will deal damage HP. LIGHTNING CHARGE: It can only destroy both players MP when it used turn after when Energy Shield turned off manually. You rush to the enemy and punch it. Punch throws enemy to back based on your base speed. If you use same spell after shield off, it will not push enemy but will destroy enemy’s MP by destroying your MP. When one of you reach 0 MP, that event ends. This spell also will deal damage. METAL FORM: you already made of metal but you still want to go in metal form. Metal form is a buff will affect you for next many turns. That buff increases your AMR. Its just that. Increases your AMR for many turns. WASTE: when you die, your remaining ammo will deal damage to enemies in range. All of enemies will take random amount of damage but total damage is always same. BURST SHOOT: you shoot the target with a flamming bullet. Its just that. ARM CANNON: You shoot something unkown but also this attack always missing. When it hits, it deals too much damage for its mana cost. It may hit another random target. Sometimes it causes an explosion and hits many targets. RAINBOW CANNON: you shoot your strongest cannon three times for shooting targets. If three of them hit, it is better than Comet but mostly 1 of them miss. Base values of Cyber(elements will be added when game ends): 3 DMG 1 HIT 0,5 FLE 3 AMR 15 HP 0,5 HPR 10 MP 1 MPR What elements Cyber use? Melee(MLE), Ranged(RNG), MAGnetic, EXPlosive, BuLLet, PLAsma BLoW, WAVe, WiND, HOT, FiRE Sense’s of Cyber: %100 SEE %200 hEAR %200 HEaT %200 MAGnetic Cyber cant fly or swim, bcause of that he has 4 times more attack range than his movement. Also machines are really great ranged units. But Cyber have no ability for escaping. Cyber’s hiding values are: %50 SML %50 MAG %50 HET %0 EAR %150 SEE %200 IDE %200 SUL Cyber is good for killing low FLE and high AMR and low speed units. Cyber is strong against high DMG units.

What makes a gun? An elements of a gun lesson

Since this is a group that likes to break it down a little, I decided to give you guys a good start. First you have to ask yourself, How do you break down a knex gun? Every time you design a new gun (not basing on looks first), this is how you define each element: - Trigger:   This is quite obvious; a system that will lock the trigger back and release when activated. (examples: true trigger, a single pin, crossbow trigger, motor (for turret designs), etc.) - Ammunition feed:   This is the system that will pull a single bullet from the ammunition storage, and put it in place for firing. (examples: gravity, spring (from a clip on the bottom of gun), lever system, etc.) - Ammunition Storage:   A simple device in theory, but sometimes quite complicated due to the fine tuning involved; a place that stores your ammunition not in use. (examples: hopper, chain-fed, clip, chamber (like a revolver or a pseudo Gatling gun), etc.) - Reload:   One of the hardest systems to design in knex yet very crucial to the gun; the system that reloads the gun for firing again. (examples: semi-auto, full-auto, pump-action, etc) - Firing pin:   The system that obviously fires the bullet loaded. - Barrel:   This has always been an iffy in knex. This is completely optional, but here are the results for it: If you add one, it can increase accuracy of shooting - but can lead to jamming and friction. If you don't, your shots can (most likely will be) quite inaccurate at medium to long ranged. -  Safety:   This feature is nice, but not necessary at all and should defiantly be thought of after the gun is fully made or the firing system / ammunition system is completely done. This system of course allows users to lock their gun while not in use to prevent mis-firing. For larger guns, I tend to go full out on this feature as larger guns can be more user-friendly and dangerous in the wrong hands (or the right hands!); and I've even created a key-lock system to enable the gun (like a car engine). (yes, the key lock was designed similar to that of a house lock, it had changeable teeth that could only be opened when the appropriate key was turned in) I highly recommend this feature, but please leave it to the end! - Other features / handles:   other features such as how the gun is held or mounted should be thought of at the very end, otherwise you would end up trying to work around that, not the other way around. BUILDING I highly suggest designing these systems separately and puting them together after they work. The only thing about this is that you build all the systems one at a time, but be sure to add the next piece on AS you're building it. Otherwise you would end up with a variety of systems that work, but not together. PLEASE feel free to post any systems designed (or built) in this group so we can work as a team to put these pieces together. For an example please check out the gun I've posted on this website (I've only posted one so far), it's a great example of building and designing systems separately but to work together. HAPPY BUILDING!

So...who is still here? Vet roll call + free concepts

Actually, I don't feel like asking for names specifically, as I don't remember everyone and some people would probably be offended if I forgot them. So, just reply to this topic if you've been here long enough that you've arguably established yourself a place in the community. I won't put any standards on that. Judge for yourself but be realistic if you wanna consider yourself a veteran. I want to know who is still here. I want to try kickstarting K'nex gunning back up again (ironic that it's me doing it) because I have plenty of ideas, fair amount of time, but little pieces. Basically I'm going to collaborate with whoever is still here and interested in my ideas. I'm hoping a decent rush of innovation will get old vets reinterested and perhaps inspire new K'nexers. If you're wanting to take on any of these projects below, let me know and I'll discuss with you them in full detail and provide whatever help I can. Otherwise, I'm leaving it to you to build them. -Improved shotgun concept. Look at Foofy's take on my concept and improve it further. I'm thinking of pump action and a large hopper. Make it bottom mounted so a higher powered weapon can be used on top -Controllable fully automatic sling gun. This would be revolutionary if we could get it to work. The potential is there, we just need to figure out how to unleash it. I've already talked enough about it, someone must be interested. -Pump action, pseudo semi auto turret. This would be somewhat complicated but still doable. Think of a gatling gun combined with the K-sayer. Each pump would cock and rotate a barrel. So you could then prepare a number of shots beforehand and then fire them all in succession. All of the above are potential war weapon candidates so I was figuring people would be more willing to give them a shot. If you're looking strictly for innovation or fun then: -Crossbow pistol. I always wanted to give it a shot but never could do it. Make it handlefed. It was going to be a candidate for my ultimate side arm back when I was still going through my TDS phase but now it would be purely for the sake of fun. -Automatic gun prop. I figured this might be interesting. Basically, make a gun that doesn't shoot but rather it ejects "shells" from the ejection port and fires either semi or fully automatically. I'm thinking you could make a rack and pinion system to drive the ejection port (which when opened would let the "shell" fly out) that's hooked up to a motor or a rubber band powered gear. It might not be as fun making something that doesn't fire but it'd be a challenge and something new. -Dual/triple stack magazine. Interestingly enough, this one is more challenging than it should be. Basically make a 3 layered magazine and then try to get it to feed into a single stack. Make it removable. The idea here is that it would have a larger capacity. It probably wouldn't be too practical, though. -Dual stockrail gun. Well, this could probably be a decent war weapon but it'd be somewhat complicated. It would combined several concepts into one gun. Make a rail gun with two rails in the stock of the weapon for extra strength with less length. Your choice of what it loads from. -Bullpup repeating sling. This has actually been made before. I know I got Jollex to make one at least. None of them seemed quite good enough, though. Add crossbow limbs and a magazine that accepts finned rounds and you've got yourself a pretty BA weapon. -Side folding stock. It's very doable, just annoying. If you could set up a hinge in a sixth layer that connects the stock and the gun, it wouldn't be much of a problem figuring out the rest. The problem is how to make that hinge. Eh, I'll come up with more. I'm regaining my memory. I kept most of my ideas in the dark and forgot about them. >_<
