I programmed the lift to wait two seconds, go up, wait two more seconds and come down. It never faulted.
The right angle makes the balls head towards the conveyor, thats all really. It is made from normal lego and after about 100 lift hits it falls off. No motors no sensors SIMPLES eek!
The convayor is made out of those funny lego pieces and is driven by a couple of wheels.
The ramps are ramps that the ball goes down. They fall through the turntable holes and onto the next ramp. sometimes the balls get stuck. The balls head to the last module, THE SPINNER!
the spinner is two wheels that push the zamour spheres to the finish. THE SPINNER used to be geard up something like 5:1 but after some problems (see problems) i took out the gearing ( it wasn't really needed). Thats all
1.Sometimes the right angle platform breaks (1/100 chance)
2.Sometimes the balls don't go on the conveyer/or (1/50 chance)
3.Sometimes the balls don't come off the conveyer/or onto the ramp (1/50 chance)
4 sometimes the balls don't go through the turntables (1/50 chance)
5 sometimes the balls get stuck in the spinner (1/50 chance)[it used to be higher i used bigger wheels so when the balls get stuck the motor kept spinning twisting the axle - see picture.)
6 the tyres wore out a bit on the conveyor
gbcs are boring to build and program. - sometimes!
look out for the video coming soon What does the red button do?
