Knex Bouncy Ball Factory

Introduction: Knex Bouncy Ball Factory

This project was tough. working with bouncy balls are a pain in the butt! anyway, here is a project I made in about three weeks. It has two lifts and a looping path as well as other paths. I made the pictures big and clear enough for people to try to copy it, that's what I do  or try to do on other's photo instructables. The video shows some flaws in the model but they are bouncy balls, they don't care.

    Could you post it when you take it apart???

    Nice ball machine! :-D Bouncy, bouncy, bouncy!
    Are you sure you got the full video posted, though? It only seems to play one path. :-(

    Yeah, the reason for that is the machine was still very buggy and I just wanted to show off the paths that worked the most. I wasn't planning to make a video but I knew some members would sooner or later ask for one. Thanks for viewing and thanks for the patch!

    Also, good job on revamping the movie! :-} I like to actually see the elements work - a nice machine!

    Nice ball machine. I like the loop!
    I've never seen one done with bouncy balls before.

    Great job! I agree that it must have been troublesome trying to make ball machine using bouncy ball.
