    [GBC] The Akiyuki Project

    To: Frequenzberater Try to look at your SPAM/Trash bins. I found my instructions there.
  2. Excellent job done, Doug72, Berthil and MajklSpajkl! I like to return to this thread to read and admire great progress you have done. Unfortunately, I have dismantled my modules several months ago. It was before Doug72 came with his crucial improvements. Now, when I see all your achievements, I regret that I had given up too early. Berthil, your design is wonderful. I like your sense for technical aesthetics. Your versions of the lift, rotary dumper and power station are excellent. I am looking forward to your (video) Pictures from the exhibition.

    There is a separate video on this module in my channel. Anyway, the module is rather simple compared to Akiyuki's original part.

    Unfortunately, they do not exist.
  5. You did not give up and you succeeded, eventually. Congratulations. Moreover, your solution seems to be more robust that the original.
  6. OK. I am also adding some information about my attempts in this field. I have built a simple Turntable module compatible with the Akiyuki train system. Is is based on the idea presented by Yoshihito Isogawa. An LXF file and instructions are available here: https://bricksafe.com/pages/Jonas/train-turntable-module I have also tried to build a smaller version of the Rotary Dumper & Elevator (shown below). Unfortunately, it did not work reliably. The gears often slipped and the complex movement of the rotary system got dissynchronized.

    Good job, Dough72. Berthil: I agree with a separate thread devoted just to Akiyuki's train system.

    Looks nice. Your system's success rate is much higher than mine. Congratulations! Now, you really must build also the elevator. You do not need to make it as high as Akiyuki did, though. Just high enough to allow the balls to fall down and move to a place where they can be collected.

    Good luck in your attempt! It is a big challenge to replace Akiyuki's cam mechanism. This clever mechanism plays several important roles: - it fixes the position of the platform during the car arrival and departure, - it stops the rotation of the platform while allowing the trigger mechanism to complete its loading before it fires, - it works as a timer to allow for a short delay between the car arrival and the start the of the rotation.

    Unfortunately, I have exactly the same experience.

    I have just noticed your question. It took me some time to learn what you mean by sliding module. If you mean Akiyuki's Passing module then there might be a hint for you: Did you make a half-stud offset when positioning the plate with the gear racks as shown in Akiyuki's instruction?

    Nice to see that you have managed to complete the layout. In my opinion, your layout is just good and compact enough to demonstrate Akiyuki's train system. The remaining modules are either too expensive for building or not that reliable. I spent quite a lot of money to build the Rotary dumper and it took me several weeks to tune its functions. In spite of that it fails quite often and requires permanent care. Moreover, it is rather huge and occupies a large space.

    Very nice modification of the original design. Seems more compact and more rigid. I guess that you must have enough modules (Akiyuki's and your own) now to run a large GBC loop.

    Looking forward to your video.
