Grid Machine is my tallest ball machine I have ever built. Grid Machine has 3 Networks and 5 Paths. Its highest point is 1.5 in (3.81 cm) from the ceiling. I had to climb a ladder to build most of it. Feel free to ask me any questions you have in the comments section. Below is a picture and video.

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.
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:
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.
I love to build K’nex ball machines, and I have been building them for a few years. Here is a list of some that I have built.
- Ball Machine in the Dining Room: Never Finished
- Crazy Moment: Never Finished
- Crazy Double: Finished. It was a combination of a Big Ball Factory set and a Trampoline Tower set. I connected them with tubes from the Big Air Ball Tower set.
- Trampoline Factory: Finished
I think Ball Machine in the Dining Room was my tallest ball machine for around two years. Then came Grid Machine which beat my record. Grid Machine almost touches the ceiling. The highest point on Grid Machine is 1 1/2 inches from the ceiling.
