Intro: Cataclysm Knex Ball Machine
After over a year of construction, Cataclysm is finally finished! It has 6 paths and 10 lifts. 8 of those lifts are new. It stands almost 8 feet high. I haven't counted the pieces yet, but I will soon. The 10 lifts are organized into 3 networks, each network having two paths. I had to buy many pieces while building, most of which were blue connectors, blue rods, and green rods. I completely ran out of yellow rods. A Lego train runs around the bottom of the ball machine. :-)
This used 16 AA and 3 C batteries to power the motors.
Construction was started on May 25, 2009, and I finished on September 25, 2010.
The grand total of pieces is 28,538!
