About: I'm a 17 years old K'nex ball machine builder. I'm from Holland.

I'm proud to present you my newest, biggest and best preforming ball machine yet, Intertwined. Feel free to ask questions!

Some facts:
-14 tracks
- 5 networks
- 7 lifts
- half a year of building time

Special thanks to Sandroknexmaster (elements), Sorunome (Ultimate Chainsaw Lift), 39Shadowman (Shifting Arm lift) and Tornado96 (Shifting Arm lift and Semi-Circle Lift) and all the other K'nex ball machine builders on YouTube and Instructables.

    in some cases the old orange tubing is better. due to the thinner radius, you can make tighter corners with the track. also, in a general 2 orange connectors on a blue rod type path, the ball lies deeper within an orange tubing based path, making it more stable. besides that, the ball holds more tortional energy, so it makes for a general slower, but not nescesary more energy loosing type of pathing.

    I think the rollercoaster tubing because it's strong.

    (But I haven't got that many of that)

    AMAZING ball machine! :-D A great way to kick off the "ball machine season" (a.k.a. summer); makes me want to continue my next ball machine! I would list what I liked the most, but the list is already overflowing. I especially commend you on the elevator and crane lifts: I have tried both before, but neither one successfully. Makes yours all the more impressive! ;-)
