  1. Nice. Which servo do you use? And what is the load?
  2. You have done wonderful job, Sariel! You designed something that is cute, compact and mainly playable. (In my eyes, it has a big potential similar to 42065 - Tracked Racer). Moreover, instead of running endless discussions, you decided to let fans and TLG make the final decision. Good luck!
  3. It would be nice but ... it is a question of time, material and also space - all what I am missing, now. So, I will be looking to your next achievements. Keep building, mates!
  4. Congratulations to you and to the whole developer team headed by Doug. Do you have any video to show us?
  5. I have just discovered and ordered this. The servo has Lego compatible cross-axle as well as studs and holes. I plan to test it in some low-torque applications controlled by Arduino.

    To: Frequenzberater Try to look at your SPAM/Trash bins. I found my instructions there.
  7. 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.
  10. You did not give up and you succeeded, eventually. Congratulations. Moreover, your solution seems to be more robust that the original.
  11. 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: 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.
  12. Here is the link to Akiyuki's video: and the link to his instructions and system description:

    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.
