What causes the machine to draw spirals instead of circles?

Instead of making a community Youtube channel, we could instead make a Youtube playlist which contains videos from all our existing channels, and then feature the playlist on the front page of Knexflux.
This would be less work than a new channel, but would achieve the same effect.

EDIT: I forgot that the desired effect of the channel is to attract new people to this site.

I think the problem is that there is too much friction. Maybe add more wheels, or put tires on the wheels.

I really like how compact that is.

If you're happy with the turntable going at 5.8 RPM then the gearing wouldn't be too hard, as you'd only need a small blue and large yellow gear.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but this might help you design the gears:

I could turn this into a selector, but I can't think of a reason I'd need logic gates.

I could also use this to engage/disengage a motor, but again, I can't think of a reason I'd need logic gates to do that.

How big do you want the drawer to be?


I had a plan to make that, but add in an entrance track, exit track, and a way of resetting the element.

Then I forgot my plan.  :-\

« on: January 06, 2017, 12:37:33 am »
Here's my method:
  • Build the machine that needs instructions (duh)
  • Take it apart in chunks. Each chunk is a separate step
  • Photograph each chunk from a few camera angles
  • Select a 'base' chunk
  • Add another chunk to that, take photo
  • Repeat previous step until all the chunks are joined, and the original model is rebuilt

Is this a commercially available piece?

Project Ideas and Help / Piece Efficient Elements
« on: December 03, 2016, 07:12:46 am »
I'm nearly finished a ball machine and I'm running low on pieces. I've ran out of yellow connectors and grey rods (and nearly ran out of red rods).

What are some piece efficient elements? I need to build a path that goes the length of 5 red rods, and a lift that goes the height of 2 red rods. Any suggestions?
