LEGO GBC 8 + Building Instructions (5 modules - 2 motors)

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Click here to download the building instructions on my website!

It has been a while since my last GBC. But I have made a new one with new modules in it;)

Click here to watch the video on my website with more information etc.:

Here's some information about the LEGO GBC 8.

To download the building instructions and watch the pictures, please visit my website: http://pv-productions.com/lego-gbc-8/

This time I used over 2000 LEGO pieces. I used 2 XL motors. One for all the modules and one for the airpump. I also used the LEGO NXT to control the LEGO GBC with your smartphone, so you can wireless turn it off and on again. You can also control the GBC with a mechanical switch.

I also used the LEGO NXT for measuring data for more details. So now you can see the balls that have passed by, the average amount of balls per second and a clock to see how long the GBC is running.

The mechanisms and functions, which I used, do not all have names. So I named them again

by function.

1. Stop-go mechanism 1: Stops balls and let them go by at the right time.

2. Sinusoid: Moves the balls by making a sinusoid motion.

3. Stop-go mechanism 2: Stops balls and let them go by at the right time.

4. Elevator: Lifts the balls to a higher level. Every time 3 balls can fit in the cabin.

5. Bridge: Leads the balls of yellow tower to the blue tower. When the elevator(4.) is down the bridge will go up and when the elevator is up the bridge is down.

6. Stop-go mechanism 3: Stops balls and let them go by at the right time.

7. Vertical pushers: Pushes the balls in a vertical way up.

8. Color sensor: takes measurements of the balls.

9. Ball pump: Pumps every time one ball. A new ball takes a place beneath another ball and then pushes them up.

10. Android app: Controls the LEGO GBC

I find these things so incredibly inventive and so much fun to watch. Thanks for this post.

I'm having trouble watching your videos by the way. They keep "crashing".

I really think we need to create a GBC Index and/or maybe start a GBC General Discussion topic.

Nice work on the GBC and you webpage :) No problems with crashing here.

I do think a GBC index would be smart.

I will try again. Probably my bad.

I do think a GBC index would be smart.

I have created a combined General Discussion Index topic.

That "snake" bridge is ridiculous! This GBC is awesome!

The 'snake' bridge reminds me of a youtube presentation where the author does a lot of animated shapes with just ropes and simple shapes .... can't think of it but fascinating. The presentation/demo was done in front of a live audience in .. california.

hhhm, an index for GBCs sounds interesting. Maybe you can also make a link to my website because that is all about GBCs. http://pv-productions.com/
