Ideas for ball machines: Elements, Paths and Lifts
« on: February 02, 2016, 06:41:01 pm »
Ball machines:
 - two intertwining ball machines that don't connect in any way
 - Shaped ball machines
 - A ball machine that is flat against a wall
Elements:
 - A wheel that has a maze inside. The ball enters it, the wheel spins causing the ball to go through the maze, the ball exits and the maze resets. (All without a motor)
Paths:
 - ?
Lifts:
 - A vertical launcher
 - Wiggly chain lift

I like your ideas! Some of them seem familiar. Here are machines that are almost your description, for inspiration.  ;)

Two interwining ball machines that have a slight connection:


Shaped ball machine: I can't think of an example, but these are often known as 'themed' ball machines.

Flat against a wall (and roof):


Wheel with maze inside:


Wiggly chain lift (combine this with versatile chain lift):
