Step 1: Rail

There are twenty-nine units in this, one of them has a red rod instead of a blue one.

This is the track on which the ball will travel.

Step 2: Lower Body Assembly 1

This is the bottom of the lift. Make sure you are right in the spacing of the wheels.

Step 3: Lower Body Assembly 2

This is a small step. this is for the ball to glide till the lift. Make sure you bend the green flexi as shown in the picture.

Step 4: Middle Body Assembly 1

This will take some elbow grease :D

Step 5: Body Fixation 1

Fix the lower body to middle body.

Step 6: Upper Body Assembly

Assemble this and attach to the main body.

Step 7: Safety Rail

This is to avoid the ball to go off the track.

Step 8: Fixation 2

We will fix the Rail to the main body and a minor thing.

Step 9: Lets Make the Micro Chain

Make this micro chain and fix this in the main body.

NOTE : Be sure how you put the chain (in which manner and direction) use help of the last picture of this step.

Step 10: DONE !

So we are done with the assembly ! Now time to use this in your projects:D
