Introduction: Mount Olympus - a K'nex Ball Machine

About: I am 14 years old and love building k'nex ball machines.
These 2 are my older versions
.
This is a remake of my first K'nex ball machine. I just got more pieces so I was able to majorly update it. It has a total of 6 paths, has over 7000 pieces, and stands over 6 feet tall. It started off as a Trampoline Tower and as time progressed I unknowingly transformed it into my own, then I kept on updating and revising it and now it is what you see above. It is still a work in progress and I never stop improving it. Check it out above and like it if you want. Pictures coming soon.

    It took from August to October approximately, with days that I didn't work on it though.
