Knex Ball Machine Element: Infinity Circle

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,

Here are instructions for an element that I call the Infinity Circle. It works really well and is easy to build. Now I just want to clarify that you do need 3 Micro Knex pieces to build this element (see step 1). And you'll need to cut some tubing pieces as well. You can always watch the video to see it in action.

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

Thanks for watching/ building,

Thibault Art.

    My brother and I are making a ball machine together. My brother is making this element for it and i'm making the wave track and wave stairs elements for the ball machine! Right now we have one of your elements built which is the bunny head! My mom LOVES that one! We picked out a LOT of your elements to make for the ball machine! If we post and instructable on it, I'll give you some credit! Here is the picture of the ball machine progress and the bunny head element and all of our k'nex we have at the moment (besides the ones used for your element and the ball machine) :

    Thank you for commenting and making my elements :)! Your ball machine looks very cool so far, keep up the good work. If there are any problems with the Infinity Circle element or any other element, feel free to ask me and I'll try my best to help you with it. Really looking forward to your and your brothers creation.

    I'm SO SAD to say this, but the ball machine fell and crashed due to someone leaving the door open for my 1 year old sister to get in. Me and my brother are panning a new ball machine, this time with a drawing of it so if this does happen again, it will still have a drawing. The elements were saved though because they weren't on it. We'll try to put the elements on that ball machine we're planning. Also, when are you going to post the lifts (or are you) that you made a video of today on youtube?

    Thanks, KneXFAN200
