Introduction: Knex Ball Machine: Revolution

About: Hey! I'm Sandroknexmaster. I like building with knex, especially ball machines. I live in Belgium. I speak Dutch, but also English and French. I hope you like my stuff, and like always comment, rate &...

Hi everyone!

Here's my new ball machine, called Revolution.

It's not as big as my previous machines but it has a special feature: You can sit on it.

As far as I know this is the first working ball machine where you can sit on. (Tell me if there is another.)

It can easily hold more than 100 kilos.

1 network, 2 lifts, 8 paths. Some new elements are also included, and the 2 lifts aren't new concepts but were designed by me.

The machine is 1.10m wide, 1.10m deep and 1.00m high.

Build time: 13 apr 2014 - 23 may 2014

Number of pieces: 13531


New elements

1st lift

2nd lift

Revolution won a Second Prize in the Community Contest: Toy Rods and Connectors, thanks for your votes!

Thanks a lot for watching and I hope you enjoy!

    well no because i was able to build it just with sandro's pictures, other people should be able to do the same, it's really not as hard as it sounds. and lol i still have the machine standing because i haven't touched any knex since this :p


    Yes it was a bit big too make full instructions, but there are instructions for some parts of this machine, you can find the links in the description.

    what made you brave enough to sit on it. looks like a lot of work to make it that awsome and well structured. one of my favorite components was the ramp jump

    Cool machine! are you actually sitting on it or is it some fancy editing?!
