  1. Hi Doug, I came across your video via this forum. I see you are an experienced builder and your mods on our GBC 10 look amazing, great work! May I share it on our social media channels? Of course with full credit. Sorry to hear that you weren’t able to finish our original model. When I read back I see the feedback you and others gave, thanks for that. When creating such a GBC from an existing LEGO set it is always one big puzzle in which the end result is never clear at first. In the design process this results in continuously swapping parts around to make the GBC as efficient and good as possible. Also we want to use as many parts as possible so that the original set is well used. Next to that we also take design into account which can influence the constructions of certain parts. Of course functionality, sturdiness and reliability rules design. LEGO GBC 10 has big mechanical contraptions in it with a lot of moving parts. The GBC can run reliable and smooth but some fine tuning needs to be done. The building instructions help you with that but because everyone builds differently we can not cover all the tweaking that has to be done. In our latest release of the building instructions we improved on this. So maybe give it another try in the future?:) For reference here’s a brief list of the changes made in the building instructions of LEGO GBC 10: Improvements on the direction change mechanism. It's now more sturdy and reliable. Changed the order of how parts come together and created more substeps so it is easier to follow. Added page numbers. Added parts on input of Ferris Wheel Module. Multiple views from different angles when you are attaching big part groups together. Some minor other improvements. If you still have questions or feedback, now or during the build, just send an email to support@pv-productions.com or via http://pv-productions.com/contact/. Normally I reply within a day. We really do something with your feedback. Hope you give our LEGO GBC 10 another chance in the future:) Philip

  8. It is indeed a DSLR. Namely the CANON EOS 550D. http://www.canon.co.uk/For_Home/Product_Finder/Cameras/Digital_SLR/EOS_550D/ I used it in combination with a 18-55 mm lens. Philip Verbeek Thanks, Indeed, I also thought that, I think. And besides the fact that I will never get 10000 supporters. But it is still worth trying and it is also a great opportunity to spread the word around the LEGO GBC fans. Philip Verbeek If you use, like I did, an airtank, the pnuematics work just fine I think.
  9. Hi there, I previously posted the LEGO GBC 8 but now, after a week, the supportpage of the project is finally published. So, support the project if you want. Thanks. Click here to download the building instructions on my website! Click here to watch the video on my website with more information about mechanisms, programms, buildinginstructions, music I used, etc etc : Here's some information about the LEGO GBC 8. To download the building instructions and watch the pictures, please visit my website: http://pv-productions.com/lego-gbc-8/ Bron: Geek.com This is not GBC builder Philip Verbeek’s first outing with the concept — he’s on his 8th GBC build. Some of the past ones have included ball launchers, ramps, elevators, grabbing claws, and more. This time Verbeek has gone for a very ambitious build consisting of elevators, moving ramps, and a crazy undulating bridge. He’s also incorporated Lego NXT that allows him to track data about system performance and control the whole thing with an Android app. This new GBC consists of about 2,000 pieces, which is fewer than some previous builds. The contraption is powered by 2 XL Legomotors — one for all the modules, and one for the airpump. The mechanical energy from the motor is transmitted to most of the modules via gears or a network of strings woven through the blocks. Possibly the coolest aspect of this GBC is the Sinusoid ramp at the beginning. Watching it undulate while suspended by a network of strings its kind of mind boggling. It must have taken a good long time to get it timed correctly. Verbeek has also been kind enough to give us a walkthrough of the design. You can follow along with the gallery above to see each module up close. Stop-go mechanism 1: Stops balls and let them go by at the right time. Sinusoid: Moves the balls by making a sinusoid motion. Stop-go mechanism 2: Stops balls and let them go by at the right time. Elevator: Lifts the balls to a higher level. Every time 3 balls can fit in the cabin. Bridge: Leads the balls of yellow tower to the blue tower. When the elevator is down the bridge will go up and when the elevator is up the bridge is down. Stop-go mechanism 3: Stops balls and let them go by at the right time. Vertical pushers: Pushes the balls in a vertical way up. Color sensor: takes measurements of the balls. Ball pump: Pumps every time one ball. A new ball takes a place beneath another ball and then pushes them up. Android app: Controls the LEGO GBC. If you think you have the time and patience to assemble your own GBC with near-clockwork precision, Verbeek has made the plans available to download. It’s also on Lego’s Cuusoo page, if you think it’s worth supporting. Maybe Lego will finally make one of the GBCs a reality? You can also track Verbeek’s projects on Facebook and his YouTube channel.

  10. hhhm, an index for GBCs sounds interesting. Maybe you can also make a link to my website because that is all about GBCs. http://pv-productions.com/
  11. Hi there, Click here to download the building instructions on my website! It has been a while since my last GBC. But I have made a new one with new modules in it;) Click here to watch the video on my website with more information etc.: Here's some information about the LEGO GBC 8. To download the building instructions and watch the pictures, please visit my website: http://pv-productions.com/lego-gbc-8/ This time I used over 2000 LEGO pieces. I used 2 XL motors. One for all the modules and one for the airpump. I also used the LEGO NXT to control the LEGO GBC with your smartphone, so you can wireless turn it off and on again. You can also control the GBC with a mechanical switch. I also used the LEGO NXT for measuring data for more details. So now you can see the balls that have passed by, the average amount of balls per second and a clock to see how long the GBC is running. The mechanisms and functions, which I used, do not all have names. So I named them again by function. 1. Stop-go mechanism 1: Stops balls and let them go by at the right time. 2. Sinusoid: Moves the balls by making a sinusoid motion. 3. Stop-go mechanism 2: Stops balls and let them go by at the right time. 4. Elevator: Lifts the balls to a higher level. Every time 3 balls can fit in the cabin. 5. Bridge: Leads the balls of yellow tower to the blue tower. When the elevator(4.) is down the bridge will go up and when the elevator is up the bridge is down. 6. Stop-go mechanism 3: Stops balls and let them go by at the right time. 7. Vertical pushers: Pushes the balls in a vertical way up. 8. Color sensor: takes measurements of the balls. 9. Ball pump: Pumps every time one ball. A new ball takes a place beneath another ball and then pushes them up. 10.

    Hi everyone, Of all the things made with Lego, my favorites are inevitably the Great Ball Contraptions. GBCs, as they are known for short, are Rube Goldberg-style machines designed with the sole purpose of moving tiny balls through a circuit. The GBC is an elegant ballet of Lego, and the ultimate contruction feat of these balls as well as their robotic NXT counterparts. The mechanisms that move the balls through the loop are generally as complex as possible, using clever actions that are reminiscent of the workings of a factory right out of How It’s Made. I think, the Great Ball Contraption is just about the greatest feat of Lego engineering that there is. So I mostly make LEGO GBCs with in particular GBC-plans with more modules mixed in one big great ball contraption. I only publish the final videos on youtube. So subscribe if you don't want to miss anything. For interim updates you must visit my facebookpage or my website. So make sure to check them out as well!
