Knex Ball Machine - the attic
« on: June 15, 2017, 11:04:16 pm »
So as some of you may know i moved house 6 months ago. The included moving my last model - the nexus (albeit in sections). The plan was to reassemble the model in the garage but that didn't happen. Instead, i now have this space instead (see picture bellow).

So I am kicking on my new ball machine in this space. My plan is to re-use a lot of the elements from the nexus (not a big fan of building from scratch each time). Hopefully, i will use this thread as a mini-blog detailing as I go along.

The focus for my new machine is to work around the space and to focus more on speed i.e. more lifts moving the ball at a much faster space. I also acquired another 10,000 parts or so and I didn't use any of my metallic pieces (~10,000 or so) so this machine should be a lot bigger!

Cool.
Would be impressive if you could do something with the triangular shapes of the attic!
Good luck building :)
