  1. @Lasse D, @m13d is already refering to them in his post of April 16th at the end of his message.
  2. I do enjoy reading this :-)
  3. can you give me a pointer which black module you are refering to? If it is mine, I can...
  4. At around 7:00 until 8:30 the two towers are driven by 8 XL motors on top of each individual stack. At around 4:00 until 5:00 one XL motor is driving 10 of these modules. The last one is driven by one M motor. At around 13:40 until 14:00 there are 3 conveyors being driven by one L motor.
  5. The GBC circuit at LEGO World Copenhagen:
  6. My first event of this year as a member of EduLUG.
  7. and a small device to control the servo motor...
  8. One of my GBC modules with a PF servo motor.
  9. that's easy to find out... let it run on LEGO world NL (7 days) for a couple of time :-)
  10. Actually.... it doesn't matter at what speed the motors in your modules are running. What is important is that I can easily spot at what speed I need to switch on your regulator when I have fixed your module. I use these tiles: http://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=3068bpb0703#T=C&C=1 to mark the speed of the regulator. Klaus Hansen sets the speed on the regulator and uses the switches to switch off one or more modules. His switches can only be used in one direction to switch the module on again. It is important for the other participants of the GBC circuit to be able to see what speed your motors need. If I don't see anything, it means full power clockwise.
  11. Yes, I use a lingerie bag to. No soap. My balls don't get that dirty... I connect a couple of modules to one train regulator, depending on which motors are used in these modules. I try to not to max-out the regulators. I mostly use one extension cable per regulator and one switch per module. A switch gives you extra cable length, polarity switch option and the possibility to switch off only this module in case of a problem. Offcourse I also have plenty 220v powercable with plenty of sockets... This picture gives you an idea of what I bring to an event...
  12. My LEGO balls are regularly washed in a washing machine. As I normally bring 1250 bals to an event, I also wash them in bulk... On events there is a lot of dust falling down on the exhibited models. That is why a lot of people cover their models with plastic after closingtime. I don't cover the modules so they gather dust from the event and also dust from the wear and tear of the modules themselves.
  13. Use BS Backup... http://www.bong69.com/site/pages/software.php
  14. I will give it a try to create come building instructions. Philo gave me his permission to make the instruction of his RCX ball counter module available to the public through my Youtube channel: And the pdf on my website:http://www.greatballcontraption.nl/ Kind regards, Maico Arts
  15. You could use the plate version of the freestyle hinge. And use it on different heights in your structure. It is more stiff than de brick version. And you can use as much as you want depending the available height...
