Lego GBC Accelerator Module (INSTRUCTIONS TOO)

Good and warm morning everyone! Today I present you the last GBC Module that has left my hands, a Lego Ball Accelerator.

Lego GBC Accelerator Module

Original name: Accelerator Module
Number of pieces: 335
Bulilding Time: 5 hours (not counting the fail of the first version)
Size: 16×32 studs
Instructions available: YES

Lets see a general overview of the module.

The mechanism is relatively simple. A Lego PF M motor moves an axle. This axle is divided into two, one part goes to move the wheel, increasing the relationship between gears to go faster, while the other continues straight to the hopper, where a liftarm moves the balls so they don´t roll into a ball.

In the first version the wheel was very loose and not all balls had the speed needed (Some even stayed on the ramp) with the result that it was not effective. In this version the wheel is secured to the floor, the baseplate, so that every ball (Or almost all) pass. The height is over 10 bricks, complying with the rules of the GBCs.

The hopper is my typical 11×11 studs that you can find in the Ball Pump Module.

Without further info, here you have the video. It includes a brief explanation of the module and the itself in action. Hope you like it!

Finally, remind you that you can dwonload the instructions for this Lego GBC module here. Use them at your discreccion ;), but give feedback!

Thanks to all who have made this creation possible, especially the GBCers Philip Verbeek for encouraging and Eran (LegoGBC) for their assistance with Sony Vegas!
