Boxerlego posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHello Everyone, Now your probably asking yourself "What is this About?" Well this a different continuation that Ultimate LEGO Motor/Generator Model Build that is going to have its own post due to the Reason that my other post was along the lines of an April fools joke and I don't want to get that confused with what I'm about to give you a peak into is no joke and is something that has never been done to the capacity that I have accomplished with Lego. But in order to fully grasp the kind of accomplishment you are witnessing being done with Lego we first need to go down the list of all the different kind of steps that I have done with this Electric Motor Build in order to see the full picture because this is no longer just simply a Work In Progress and to my expectations is becoming the impossible made possible because what you going to see here simply has never been done with Lego. This brings a whole new level of thought to the phrase of thinking/building outside of the box. In the beginning my goal was to make a LEGO BLDC Motor make it spin. Here is a video of that accomplishment. But here is the deal I was just getting started with my electric Motor and I had even bigger plans for this machine. 001_stator by boxerlego, on Flickr When I first built the Electric Motor, I don't need to exaggerate It set around with out a Magnet Rotor to Spin for a long time, I fought very Long and Hard and put in a lot of days worth of time searching around the internet for a design that would work well with the Electric Motor. I thought so long on building this rotor Design that When it came to building the Magnet Rotor I figure that in order to do it right I got to go to the basics for the best Idea, which was based around the wagon wheel method of construction. For me this was the best Idea and was the best approach to build the Magnet Rotor which could incorporate all kinds of arrangements, sizes, strengths and number of magnets. Rotor magnets by boxerlego, on Flickr By building the magnet rotor in a similar fashion to the Wagon wheel I was gaining the ability just like a interchangeable Wheel to have a interchangeable Magnet Rotor for the Electric Motor. That is the kind of Rotor you want for a build like this. LEGO Magnet Rotor Axle Bearing Race Bushing by boxerlego, on Flickr Lego Impeller Plate by boxerlego, on Flickr Now the next goal of the Electric Motor project is attaching this Impeller plate and surprising enough all the 4 screw holes on the impeller Plate fitted so perfect with Lego it was like it was made for LEGO. You have seen people attaching DC motors to their Lego builds but, How many people do you see attaching an vacuum impeller to their LEGO build with Machine perfected accuracy? The answer is only one and you are only going to see it here everyone. Lego Impeller by boxerlego, on Flickr Attaching the Impeller to the Electric Motor is a Huge Step for this Project. I have done what most would have deemed Impossible. I don't need to exaggerate I to also thought It was something that would never be done. How awesome is it to see this Vacuum Impeller Unit be able to attache to the LEGO System. Now this Is becoming the workings of a Real Deal LEGO Generator. Comments & Questions are welcome.
