About: You can find me over on Knexflux! https://knexflux.net

Hi everyone,
this is a switch designd by yardking. Because his is just for golf balls I post here my version for knex balls. It works with modules. You'll have so many paths as you have modules plus one. Have fun with building it up and thanks again to yardking.

(Hope everything is spelled correctly, i'm German)


Step 1-8 are building the modules
Step 9 is building the modules together
Step 10 is building the hed
Step 11 is building the tail

Step 1: Back Frame


Step 2: Front Frame


Step 3: Rod of Mechamism


Step 4: Back Frame + Rod


Step 5: Back Frame + Mechamism


Step 6: Adding the Front Frame


Step 7: Connecting Rod


Step 8: Lower Frame

This module is finished. if it doesn't work corectly you have to move the two white rods in ore out.

Step 9: Putting the Modules Together

Put the modules like this together.

Step 10: Head


Step 11: Tail


Step 12: Finishing Statment

You've just build a new kind of switch!
If you have any problems be free to ask.

    I built it and when the ball rolls across it, it turns some of the other ones. How would I fix that?

    This is a really really cool element, I'm using it in my newest ball machine (which I'll hopefully post to my YouTube channel soon) and it's absolutely incredible how clever this is! XD Unfortunately the support structures on my machine are slightly tilted (due to bracing it between the door frames of out house cause I want to make it go all over our entire house without getting in the way) and that throws it off balance slightly, but that's nothing a little tweaking can't fix! Thank you for some very ingenius ideas! :D

    "I don't get it at all.
    Just kidding, it's pretty good, I'll use it for sure"
    Something like that ^^
