Knex Ball Machine Element: Center Zig Zag

About: Hey everyone. I'm Thibault Art and my biggest hobby is to build huge machines in K'nex. I like also to draw a lot and take care of my corn snake. On this page you will find K'nex ball machines, K'nex element...

Hey everyone,

Welcome to another instruction where I show you the firs of the 33 elements that was included in my latest Ball Machine ECLIPSE. I will post every new element separately on my Instructable page, and today I'm showing you the Center Zig Zag. It's called the Center Zig Zag because the ball stays in the center while the zig zag itself moves from right to left until the ball exits the element. It works 99% of the time and doesn't consume too much pieces.

If there are any problems or questions, feel free to ask me in the comments below.

Thanks for watching/ building,

Thibault Art.
