Introduction: Knex Ball Machine: Revolution, Elements
Here are the instructions for the 5 new elements from my knex ball machine Revolution.
Not as many as usually, but the reason is that Revolution isn't as big as some of my previous machines.
If you have any questions, you can always post a comment or PM me.
Thanks for watching / building!
Step 1: Side Exit Arm
An arm where the ball exits to the side.
Step 2: Lift Arm
A cool element where the ball gets lifted up a bit after the arm is pushed down. This element works better when the arm is slightly tilted to the left, as seen in the last picture of this step. Make sure the ball enters slowly, or it won't work.
Step 3: Zig Zag Drop
This started as a lift idea but ended up as an element :D
Step 4: Clicking Path
Nice alternative path.
Step 5: Double Cross Tie Path
The parts under the path may seem pointless, but without them the ball gets stuck between the edges of the cross ties. And of course we don't want that to happen.
