Ball Machines, Lifts and Elements / K'nex Plate Wheel Lift
« on: November 07, 2020, 05:25:15 pm »
K'nex Plate Wheel Lift
--> View Instruction

Hey y'all

This is a very simple but good looking wheel lift that I used in my ball machine 'Emotion'
The construction is very simple, doesn't require a lot of pieces, and works with other types of motors too. The balls get raised by 3 blue rods, or 1.5 red rods.

If you have any questions, as always, let me know.

Ball Machines, Lifts and Elements / K'nex 2-Way Panel Separator

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!

Proximity - a K'nex Ball Machine
--> View Model

After two months of building, my next, biggest and best machine is here: Proximity.

My biggest machine so far. It features 6 paths and 4 lifts distributed over 2 networks. This is the first machine I made sketches for before building. In those two months I bought more K'nex, which allowed for the size of this (I still have alot of pieces left)

Everyone adds one word to make one or multiple sentences.

For example:
Someone says 'the'
The next person adds a word, 'the hungry'
This continues on until someone finishes the sentence. 'the hungry fox went to the church.' Then a new sentence is started.

I'll start: We
