Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Bottom & Network
This is where the balls come to be lifted by the chain lift and up to the top.
Step 2: The Switching Yards
This is how the balls connect to the four support towers.
Step 3: Path 1
Step 4: Path 2
This path features sandroknexmaster's spiral stairs and my new kind of tipping path.
Step 5: Path 3
This path greatly features me and my brothers' simple alternators that we constructed on our own.
Step 6: Path 4
This path features my new mini chain lift bridge with rails.
Step 7: Large Ball Alternator (paths 5 & 6)
Paths 5 and 6 are powered by my new large ball alternator.
Step 8: Paths 7 & 8
These paths combine to act like a mini racetrack where two balls are released at the same time by a two-ball dropper I made for the balls to fall down the chute first.
