Introduction: Renovism - a K'nex Ball Machine
There we were, at LAN towers, cleaning out the old machines, the computers...
When all of a sudden we came upon the digital content of an ancient machine... A machine well beyond the technical advancement of the day! Beside the clips and photos there was nothing more of the machine, and so we called it...
I'm back with another Ball Machine: Renovism. It has been sitting on my computer since 2014 and I have finally got around to it. It was built in a week flat and features several innovations from your favorite K'nexperts: Famous names such as Austron, Shadowman39, Sandroknexmaster, Sorunome, Tornado96, IAmCanadian & many more! Thanks to you all!
In this Instructable you will find an album of pictures for Renovism, and links for instructions to many Lifts, Paths & Elements featured in Renovism!

Step 1: Photo Album
Here are all of the photos I took of Renovism just spewed out at you!
These can also be used for reference if you want to build off the pictures.
Step 2: Lifts
I used 3 lifts on Renovism, powered by 2 electric motors; Inverted Double Helix Lift, Fast Cardan Gear Lift, and my modified version of the Semi-Circle Lift - the Semi Oval Lift.
The Semi-Circle Lift was made by Tornado96. You can find the instructions for it here: K'nex Semi-Circle Lift
I plan to make mod instructions eventually on how to make the Semi-Circle Lift into a Semi-Oval Lift.
You can always refer back to the pictures in this instructable for building!
Step 3: Paths & Elements
A Few Elements I used in the machine.
Update: All of the guides for K'nex Ball Machine Elements I used were compiled into one BIG guide, cheers to you mate!
