  1. I'm also surprised to see an actual Lego cloth exists, thought as well Akiyuki was simply using some kind of random cleaning cloth Well, even better for the Lego purists among us! Is part # 72965 not the same item? https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=72965&name=Scala Cloth Kitchen Towel&category=[Scala]#T=S&O={"iconly":0}

    @turbopolofr This is also great news by the way! I recently learnt that "Lego Gbc And Stationary Engines" was also working on this module, but couldn't finish it (side tracked with other projects), so nice to hear that you're still working on it and the original designer is giving support! Really superb Geneva Drive module I think, both the underlying techniques as well as the overall appearance look very inviting... Also my compliments on your Planet GBC website! Great place to learn about the numerous GBC modules and designers out there. Already downloaded lots of building instructions and other useful stuff over the past months. Thanks and keep up the good work!

    Thanks for sharing the video, looks awesome! I think the Technic 1x2 liftarms are a perfect substitute for the rubber runners, both techniques seem to be doing the job and both look neat. Was it your aim to still create that randomized output flow or are the white parts on the top slope merely meant to slow down the balls? Hope to see the instructions online soon
  4. @Juroen, indeed I see the nice combination: the famous air compressor by Quanix in the frame of Akiyuki's Ball Cleaner Is your goal still to build an air compressor purely out of official Lego elements using as many PF motors, air cylinders and air tanks as needed to run the Ball Cleaner? I remember, being a Lego purist myself, that you really wish to avoid an external compressor. So far I only built one Quanix compressor which is fine for relatively smaller pneumatic modules. As it seems you're applying a similar framework as for the Ball Cleaner, will the compressor be directly attachable to the Ball Cleaner itself (same length, same height)?

    You did it again! Truly amazing! Seems to be running flawlessly and smoothly once again! I've got some questions, but perhaps better to first await your official presentation, building instructions and parts list. Some questions might already get answered that way. Thanks for sharing the video and for the work done (read: F-U-N )! Ooh.... and of course welcome back Pepsi (although indeed showing less interest in GBC as before)!

    Great to hear! This one was also still on my to-build-list... nice to see that some of the older modules of Akiyuki are still being reverse engineered and get the attention they deserve (Container Transporter, Ball Cleaner,...) @Courbet, I've built several modules for which you made the 3D model/building instructions, so I'm sure you'll get things running smoothly in the end and quality, reliability and performance will be superb as usual! Already a big thanks (again) for the work done, hope to see a video soon!

    @dunes, thanks for sharing! Nice to see that even more GBC enthusiasts are interested in this module/mechanism! I think it definitely deserves the attention Looks like it's working flawlessly. I really like the whole black appearance, especially the circled "banana" gear racks look awesome in black! Eventually I was also planning to make it part of a GBC layout, rather than using it as a standalone module. So did you also leave out the ratchet mechanism, like @Ankoku did? Depending on the following module in the layout, I guess I would decide whether or not to go for that great output ramp, like @PG52 and @Ankoku did. Thanks again!

    @Ankoku That's great to see! Perhaps I missed some of your posts, because I didn't even realize you had already finished the model in real life. Looking forward to seeing your video one day, I'm sure you'll get it to work perfectly Also thanks for the extensive explanation and your experience gained during the building process. Much appreciated and it's always nice to hear about this personal aspect and the mods that have been made! Nice to read that PG52 provided some additional pictures and that the original designer is "on board" when it comes to instructions being made for the module. By the way, I have been wondering about the lack of giving credits by PV-Productions, always had some doubts on how this went down... I fully understand making step-by-step BI is a lot of work. I notice these days that more and more downloadable Stud.io 3D models look great and are qualitatively speaking really good, but often contain only one huge step. Sometimes I take the time to work on step-by-step instructions myself, but I agree it's time consuming and I too need to learn more about it and get the hang of it. I didn't even pay attention to the ratchet system in the video of PG52 until I read your comment just now Indeed I would leave it in the instructions to keep it as close as possible to the original design, if other builders wish to remove it, they can... Always like GBC modules that are self syncing! (Akiyuki's Ball Factory...? hehe ) Do you mean "The Sun" sign at the top is still there in your build, but just without the rack and pinion mechanism making it move up and down? Cannot really tell by looking at your picture.

    @Ankoku, posted a while ago, but I was wondering if you ever managed to work on a 3D model and/or building instructions for "The Sun" GBC module by PG52? Really liked this one ever since I first saw the video and would certainly like to build it myself one day and add it to my GBC collection I know the module is also part of "GBC 30 Fun Park" by PV-Productions, but those instructions are quite expensive

    At the end of 2015, when building the Ball Factory, I used Blakbird's 3D/MPD file to see the model from some different angles, was quite useful sometimes. At that time I was still using MLCad, so that certainly works for this specific file. In the meantime I also switched to Stud.io, but have to agree it doesn't always load the slightly older LDraw files correctly.

    That's good to hear! Was getting a bit worried as it was so quiet lately around the Ball Cleaner builds. Hope you can finish it soon and all works well

    [GBC] Akiyuki Ball Factory

    Amazing, almost didn't recognize it being the Ball Factory, partially looks like a complete new module! But looks great and so far everything seems to be working in a smooth way! For sure very stable and solid and easy to move around. Glad to hear you'll continue working on it, looking forward to see the progress on the next steps! Thanks for sharing the update!

    [GBC] Akiyuki Ball Factory

    Great idea to create a separate topic for this one and to centralize all improvements, mods and variations! Worked well for the Akiyuki train system. Also for me this was the first GBC I built at the end of 2015 and it's still one of my favorites. Although quite fragile and indeed difficult to move around, I loved working on it and spent quite some time back then on setup, timing, alignment etc. Unfortunately never got it to run flawlessly and 100% reliably for a longer period of time... It's now collecting dust on a shelf and that's a real pity for such an iconic piece of Lego machinery, so I'll follow this thread with great interest, because I'm certainly planning to rebuild the Ball Factory at some point in time and I'm sure this thread will be of great help!

    @HRU_Bricks, that looks awesome! Truly a streamlined and beautifully shaped GBC! Looks so neat, similar to Akiyuki and Quanix masterpieces! Have a million questions for you (), but will ask them at a later stage when I'm actually starting my pneumatic build (few other projects to finish first). Also, maybe better to further discuss it on ReBrickable as here in the Akiyuki thread it's a bit off topic I guess... Anyway, thanks for sharing the vid, free instructions, parts list and supporting document with explanations (pdf building notes), much appreciated!! Don't own a Lego Boost set yet, but this might be an excellent reason to purchase one Looking at your factory and the ones created by Quanix, I start to believe it's wiser (for someone without much experience with / knowledge of pneumatics) to first try a smaller project. Yours seems to be perfect for that! Think it's a good start to my pneumatic Lego GBC adventure!
