Compact separator: a k'nex ball machine separator

Compact separator: a k'nex ball machine separator
--> View Instruction



This is the new separator featured in our k'nex ball machine Impossible. This separator has some inspiration from Thibault Art's ball machine route 66 at 7:30. This separator is very compact (hence its name), as it is only a blue rod high. You can put multiple separators in succession to separate multiple paths, or just use one.
  Either way, have fun building! Be sure to look at the image notes. They'll help you a lot.

This would've been very helpful if I knew about this a long time ago. I'm sure I'll need it in a future ball machine.

hey, that's awesome!
Unfortunately, it was part of our ball machine just a few months ago, and it took a bit longer than expected to make the instructions. Glad to see you like it ;)
