K'nex Ball Machine: Grid Tower II (Pictures)




About: I like to build with K'nex and Lego.

I built a K'nex ball machine that I call Grid Tower II. It has 1 network and 8 paths. The reason why it is called Grid Tower II is because it was originally based on my previous ball machine Grid Tower, but as I was building it, I decided to make it a castle-themed version of Grid Tower. I designed 2 of Grid Tower's lifts, 1 of its path separators, and 15 of its elements. I also used www139's Versatile Chainsaw Lift twice, and an element from MechanicalCreationMaster
(whom I forgot to credit in the video).

Instructions for the elements

Instructions for the first lift

Instructions for the second lift

I am currently working on instructions for the new path separator.

    Thanks! Construction of Grid Tower II spanned about 18 months, but most of that time was actually spent doing other things and not building.
