K'nex gun with new type of hopper bottom Answered

the pics pretty much explain it (this where made with bricksmith, a free lego digital building program, though u can download knex parts, though it is messing the ball joint connectors, ball joint, chain links, and black Y thingys)


What software did you use for this?

If you look at the top of his screenshots you can see it's called "Bricksmith"

Workable, Maybe. This would not be very reliable due to the round jumping exhibited in most hopper designs, Also the interior edge of blue connectors is very slightly grooved so the rounds would "stick" on the sides of the hopper. Interesting concept though.

note to people i have built this gun and it does work, though im on vacation and dont have it on me, plus it was good practice for working with bricksmith

how does the hopper work?

i havent made a hopper for it yet, though it works like all hoppers (the blue connecters are a replaced for the tan pieces

i thought so, you do realise it wont work? look at the hole through the blue connecters and then try to put a rod throught it, they dont fit

the black pieces lower it enough that it will work

if u notice the level of the blue pieces on the picture, oh screw it, take some pieces and build the barrel and the hopper, they will line up, cause the bullets lay on the top of the blue pieces

the blue pieces are a replacment for the tan pieces usually used in guns with hoppers, mags
