braker23 posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHey everyone! It's been a while since I presented one of my models here, but I believe this one should get your attention, as it's not something that you build everyday. It's my first life-size model, a fully functional electric fan. It features an on-off switch, 2 buttons for choosing the speed (low and high) and a switch for the oscillating motion. It uses an L motor placed in the base that drives a 2-speed high-torque gearbox, and an old 9V motor (71427) placed in the fan head, for the lateral movement. It's powered by a large BB, found in the base (naturally). It's quite heavy (around 2 Kg), but sturdy and reliable, so it can be used as a real fan (into high speed), as long as you don't mind replacing batteries too often :) But enough talk, check out the photos and video below. You can see all the photos on my Flickr album: https://www.flickr.com/photos/51283853@N06/albums/72157672498837433/with/30656258222/
ataripirate posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingI am trying to replicate the fan that is in the video at this link, it seems that the things that look the easiest to do, can be the trickiest. Here is a still shot. It doesn't seem that hard to make, but with a lot going on, I seem to be missing something and cannot get it to function properly. wondering if anyone could do a parts list, minus the fan blades of course, of what they see, assembly seems to be straight forward, but again, maybe I am missing something. any comments and ideas are welcome, improvements, other versions, concepts are appreciated. thanks to any and all that provide assistance in any way Bobby
