Spacerail: Poleopolis

I built another of my own design Spacerail ball machines.  I call it Poleopolis because it has so many poles.  It contains my new dumper element.  I built my dumper element with my dad, and it is made out of wood and metal.  It takes 3 balls to tip the mobile track. See image below.

For this Spacerail ball machine, I did something I have never done before: horizontal poles!  Below are the pictures of the two horizontal poles in this ball machine.

Spacerail: 232-Ultimate

I built yet another of my own design Spacerail ball machines. I call it 232-Ultimate.  This time it has three Networks and four Tracks.  It was so big I had to put it on a board to carry it.  Below are the pictures and video.

Note: I made a mistake in my video.  The second time the text Network 2 appears it is really supposed to say Network 3.

 

Sorry I haven’t been posting about my K’nex ball machines.  I have just been so busy with other projects.  Hopefully I will post about Grid Tower and Grid Machine soon.  I am still filming and editing Grid Machine’s video.  It takes it a lot longer to film and edit K’nex ball machine videos than Spacerail ball machine videos.

K’nex vs. Marbles Track

A few days ago, I built a ball machine element that works with both K’nex balls and marbles. The coolest part is the sorter at the end. It sorts the K’nex balls and marbles. Below is a picture and the video.

My First Own Design Spacerail Ball Machine

I built my own Spacerail ball machine. I got my first Spacerail set on Friday, July 18th. I built the ball machine in the instructions that day. The next day, Saturday, July 19th, I designed, built, and filmed my own Spacerail ball machine. It uses 4 balls and has 1 track. Below  are the pictures and video.

Spacerail ball machines remind my mom of Denha.

Grid Machine Update

The ball machine I am currently working on is Grid Machine.  My nickname for Grid Machine is Machine of Tricks.  This is what it looks like so far:

Grid Machine So Far

Today, I added a lot of elements and pathing to Path 4.  One of the tracks looks impossible,  but it does work!   Below are some pictures of it.   I call it The Trick Swoop.   The arrows point to the track.
