    [GBC] Instruction Index

    I recently built 4 GBC modules with the help of instructions that members of this group have posted. Thanks everyone!!!! - Now I have a question, at a recent show, folks that said they were going to bring a module didn't, so we had a 3 foot gap in our circle. I have seen what looks like a simple to construct ball slide/bridge that could be used to complete the circle but can not find any instruction on reliable, sturdy way to build one. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
  3. Thank you Captainowie for your response. I was planning on having my initial class explain basically what a GBC module is, then show some you tube video of a typical GBC set-up. Then have a couple of GBC's modules for the group to take a look at. My initial overview would be around 2 hours or so. If there is an interest, then I was thinking about scheduling a formal class each week for 2 hours for about 8 weeks. Most of the folks that have expressed an interest our some students who have an interest in engineering and after teaching some fundamental, challenge them to create their own design or take and existing design and make it their own.
  4. Good day, I hope that this is not an inappropriate topic for this form. I have been asked to create an introductory course on how to use Legos and technic pieces to build great ball contraptions. I have learned through the school of hard knocks and how to do it. But I was wondering if anyone in this group can help me develop a syllabus or outline on topics to include in a brief course that would assist students and adult fans of Lego get a better comprehension of how to build one. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated? Or if you know of any good resources that I could use as a framework for a program if you could share it with me or provide me the URLs or documents that would also be very helpful and quite appreciated. If you want to send me something my email is dgeehot@gmail.com - Thanks - Daniel
  5. The ArkLug (AFOL) group in Arkansas helped create a History of Lego display at the State Capital of Arkansas in Little Rock Here is a video that was created by the Secretary of States Office and narrated by their historian - https://youtu.be/ZJjyuQc1y9k The display at the State Capital is open to the public and will be there until around the first of 2020 If you have the opportunity come by and take a look and share your thoughts

    GBC Event Kit

    Thank you Dr_Spock for your input and response. In your post you indicate that you use the most reliable modules are they of your own design or they designed by others. I set-up my first show this past weekend and had an on-going issue of my modules getting jammed up or losing balls. What would you recommend as good reliable modules

    GBC Event Kit

    This question is for folks that set-up GBC modules at events. Do you have an emergency/breakdown/set-up kit that you take to events? If so what do you have in your kit? I did my first event this past weekend and would like to make sure that I am better equipped for the next event which will be in October. Thanks, Daniel
  9. I am interested in learning how to build a Great Ball Contraption (GBC) and was wondering if I could recommendations from the group on good resource that would possibly be able to assist me. Also, want to learn how to create my own designs and concepts. Any resource on the web, youtube or books would be greatly appreciated - Thanks - Daniel

    [GBC] Sawtooth (BW2019 Workshop Module)

    I built the sawtooth module. An in the instruction it mentions an alignment tool but no where can I find out what that is or even where to get or build it - any thoughts or suggestions
