K'nex Ball Machine 'Exodus' Update

Introduction: K'nex Ball Machine 'Exodus' Update

About: 3D printing enthusiast and aspiring engineer. Ex K'nex addict

Yep, a new ball machine is coming soon! Today I started construction and...got lots more done than I expected to. I have spent about 5 hours hurting my hands and sitting on my knees doing this!

It will have 2 networks and either 4, 8 or 12 paths (Depends on space, time and amount of pieces I have). I have half-constructed the main path and finished one network. So far there's 2 new elements, a new path and a new lift all by me!

Sadly I can only work on it at weekends. Also, I'm already nearly out of k'nex (No red rods left :/ ) so construction will be a bit slow, however I am determined to finish this no matter how long it takes!

Note: I am really sorry for the bad pictures, the light in my room is terrible.

Step 1: Edit(s):

Well, after lots of thinking I have decided to make it one network. I simply do not have the pieces to do two. One is hard enough! I hope you amazing people understand :-)

I may delete this Instructable after I create exodus, I'm not sure. Tell me if you want it to stay or not! Anyway here's another spoiler :) I'll try to get it done before Christmas.

*THE PICTURES ARE NOT THE BEST QUALITY ON PURPOSE AS IT IS ONLY A SPOILER*
