In This Instructable I'll Show You How To Make My Knex Battle Bot.

Here Is A Video Of My Knex Battle Bot In Action:

The Program I Used Is Called MlCad Knex.
Here Is The Download:
You Just Download It And Then Extract It To Your Desktop.
Then Open That Map (Its Called Knex) And In That Map Click MLCad.

I Know There Are Many Steps But Its Just To Make It Easier.

Step 1: Things You Will Need.

Things You Will Need (It May Be Possible That You Need More Or Less Pieces Of One Kind When I Miscounted Myself) :

2X Battery Power Pack (Picture 1) (If You Have, Use 2 Fast Knex Motors. I Didn't, Cause I Don't Have Any).
1X Tethered Power Pack Motor (I Call It Longcable Motor) (Picture 2) (If You Have, Use 1 Fast Knex Motor. I Didn't, Cause I Don't Have Any).
1X Gray Gear (Picture 3)
8X Red Gear (Picture 4) (I Also Used Yellow Gears Instead Of Reds But I Cut Off The Teeth At The Side)
4X Wheel (Picture 5 + 6 but connected) (I Just Couldn't Find A Picture Of Them Together)
Purple 3D Connectors: 36X
Blue 3D Connectors: 11X
White Rods: 69X

The Final Step, Putting On The Chains (Micro Chain Links).
I Made 2 Videos Of It.

The Video Shows You How To Put Up The Chains On Both Sides Of The Battle Bot.

The First Video Is Of The Left Chain (26 Micro Chain Links Are Needed)

The Second Video Is Of The Right Chain (27 Micro Chain Links Are Needed)

When You've Done This You're Finally Finished! Congratulations!!!

    Grammar isn't putting capitals on the first letter of every word. You put capitals on the first letter of every sentence. Like this. Not Like This.

    first of all, srry that i let you w8 so long but i was a bit busy.

    If you mean where you can find 'the virtual motor' in mlcad knex, the answer is nowhere. Its just a snapshot (=picture) of a knex motor. Same way with all the other parts on this page.

    I Know But I Couldn't Get A Better 'Spike' On It, I Tried It Already With A Very Small Pencil And Some Tape But That Doesn't Works Well.

    Please post a link to the site that you downloaded this version of mlcad from, my version doesn't have as many parts.
