Matt's GBC module thread.

Post by Matt N »

It was nice meeting some of you at the last meeting! Here is my latest Lego GBC video. I plan on bringing the module to the next meeting so you can all see it in person.

https://youtu.be/fj9hBsHDH8Q I will post all of my future videos in this thread, and if you haven't seen my other modules they are all available for view on the channel at http://www.youtube.com/c/greatballpit

Alternatively you can visit the blog at http://www.greatballpit.com where there is lots of content and information on Lego GBC.

Here's my latest module. It's a BrickWorld workshop module that I have cleaned up a bit and also made it work with my shared power system.

Good idea for a video... HOW HIGH WILL IT PUMP?! I have seen a few versions on YouTube that are around 10 bricks higher then the default height. I think I will have to test it out for myself, I'll use both an M and XL motor to see if there is a difference.

I ask cause unlike conveyor belts which are petty much unlimited the older first generation lego ball pumps capped out around 20 " . Interested if the check valve makes a big difference.

Here's my latest module and video. It's a very simple module, created with the intention that anyone can build this (instructions are provided on my website) and then modify it to suit your tastes.

that's WAY higher then the classic ball pumps . The first generation of ball pumps used the old 9v motors and lacked check valves though, so probably the larger selection of technic parts, newer motors and check valve all contribute to its impressive pumping height.

New module that was a "one day build". There are free instructions on my website for anyone interested.

https://youtu.be/Hvl9U1yE1Gk I've since integrated this in to my shared power system so it doesn't need to use its own motor anymore.

For anyone interested, I've posted 4 different videos featuring 95% of all the GBC that was at BrickCon this last weekend. If anyone here wants to start building GBC and has any questions please feel free to ask!

Here's a new video featuring the Boost Pachinko module I debuted at BrickCon 2018 in Seattle. In this video you can see how the jackpot mechanism works underneath the game area.

Thanks for posting these. I've decided to cross post them on the Front Page, but started with the Toilet one because, that is currently my favourite. And this goes for any member out there who have MOCs that they want to share to the Front Page. Please do let Andrew D or myself know and we'll pop something up.

Back with a new take on a sideways conveyor mechanism. Used up 25 brick separators in the process.

interesting how you have the table divided to ensure there are no jams by committing the balls to different areas on the table .

Need a Nether module next !
