    Simple GBC using the PUP City/Batmobile HUB

    I'm fine using the Control+ hub from my 4x4 to run this module for a show this weekend :)
  2. Here's a video of the first in a series of LegoGBC modules I will build using the smaller simple City/Batmobile HUB. I will be flashing the code directly to the HUB with Pybricks as soon as the firmware is available for the City HUB. (I already have the python working on the control+ HUB)

    2020 Mindstorms set

    I'm looking forward to this set, and I plan to build some GBC modules using the hub, motors, and sensors. Hopefully the software to program this brick is well done, I'm not too keen on how they did the boost/pup/control+ programming. The lack of documentation, and in-house tutorials, was disappointing.
  4. I've used Pybricks with my Technic Hub and had great results. Looking forward to the City and Boost hub firmware becoming available!

    There are a bunch of other great mods for this module that people have come up with. I have done the 20T bevel gear reduction mod.

    Masking tape and a sharpie with an arrow drawn pointing to the correct speed for that controller.

    [GBC] Multipath

    Hello, here is my latest module which will allow me to split the flow of balls into two separate outputs. I've wanted to do a path splitter for a while. So after seeing a module in a recent European GBC layout that used the Sports ramps in this manner, it inspired me to get started. This module has a recirculation function, massive input bin, and the ability to move balls out quite quickly. The biggest challenge when building this module was getting the sweeper motion to work as intended. If anyone here has a better solution for the sweeper linkage please leave a reply as it is something I'd like to improve.

    Looks great, I'll be getting this one for sure.

    Hi Doug, all of the clips in my intros are taken from full length videos available on my YouTube channel. That intro has "Morgan's Mine", "Tilt-Shift" and "Solaire". If you are talking about the Minecraft module, it's based on GBCRamps which was designed by Brian Bonahoom. Instructions available here: http://www.greatballcontraption.com/wiki/GBCRamps I did build something similar called Inclination which can be seen here: https://youtu.be/B5RKMy1Ubj4
  12. Here is my version of the BrickWorld Chicago 2019 Workshop Module. It is a jigsaw style stepper and uses a Power Functions M motor. The motor and powertrain are built in such a way that they are supported by the main drive axles which is quite interesting. It is mostly studless Technic which is a departure from the BW series of modules.

    It's an interesting module @Lasse D. I think it needs to be themed as a "Dippy Bird" 🦜

    The module was definitely inspired by many different round racer track modules I've seen in the past, not a specific one. None of them were referenced when building the module. Interestingly some like @Maico have the break in the track where the sweeper has to jump back down, I decided to keep the track in one piece and use a conveyor to get the balls up. I'm expecting this module to be really useful @ public layouts due to the ability to handle corners and U-Turns.
