Rod-Gear Interlocking System without Tan Clips
--> View Instruction



This is a rod to gear interlocking assembly that does not use any tan clips. I was experimenting with using splice clips and an orange connector to try to make an improved gear coupler that does not clamp to the rod and spaced the gears further apart, but I ended up developing this that does clamp the rod. The splice clips protrude into the orange connector, and the orange connector is clipped to white rods that hold purple connectors clipping into the metallic gold yellow rod. The tips of the white rods would not fit until the splice clips were angled to the side.

When twisting the purple connectors directly, it is extremely tough and unbreakable. However, when twisting the gold rod with orange connectors clipped to it, the assembly breaks apart under slightly more force than a tan clip can tolerate before detaching. This can be solved by using blue rods in place of the white rods and clipping more purple clips to the gold rod, but even with the white rods this assembly would require a wide chamber compared to a tan clip, like a blue unit wide instead of a green unit. Also, the crown gear must be facing towards the assembly, and if a crown gear needs to be facing away then another gear must be coupled adding unacceptable complexity and width (unless you 3D print a gear with double crowns). The interlocking assembly has much more slack than a tan clip.

YSL's 6-way Ball Separator
--> View Instruction



This instructions page will show you how to build my 6-way ball separator. The ball separator consists of a manifold, 3 blue rods deep by 4 blue rods wide by 5 blue rods tall, which rotates back and forth as it separates balls evenly between 6 outputs. While this design certainly isn't the most space-efficient method of separating balls, it does provide a nice visual element as it pendulates back and forth. This ball separator was designed and tested with standard red/yellow K'nex balls, so I cannot tell whether this will or won't work with the oversized/underweight balls from the Big Air Ball Tower. If you want to see if this will fit your machine before building it, mounting instructions are located in Step 6.

K'nex 2-Way Panel Separator
--> View Instruction



Hello everyone!
This is a path separator I designed that will be used in my next Ball Machine, Emotion. It uses flippers to switch the direction of the panel. Because why use a simple, old-school, piece efficient, reliable path separator when you can have this?
It's easy to build and works pretty well. I hope you can put it to some use in your projects too! If you have ay questions, leave a comment or send me a message!
Happy building!
-Boris

So, here is finally instructions for an Austron's K'nex ball machine lift, it take me much time, so I don't know if I'll do it again. All the instructions are based on the Austron's video called "K'nex Automatically Reversing Lift". I will post soon(if I've enough time) an other instructions for an other Austron's lift...
