Model Storage Robot Part 2: Hardware

The hardware I built for my private high-rise storage system has collected dust matured for some time now - time for the next video of the series.

Model Storage Robot Part 1: Big Picture, Big Plans

For some time now, I've accumulated several libraries and technologies on my list of things to try out. Someday. Whenever I can find the time. Which is probably - well, someday never comes. So I decided to make up my own "fun" project and stuff many of the things I wanted to try out into it.

System Landscape for Add-On Development

This is the second part of my answer to Christian Drumm's question What System Landscapes Setup to use for Add On Development? - and probably more of an answer to the original question than the first part.

First Marble Coaster 2016

This is a combination of some of the transport mechanisms of the standard models. 

Dynamic XL 5 - Spring Launcher

Assembling this model is fairly easy, but getting it to work took some time. Tuning the spring mounting as suggested by the instructions didn't work for me - I had to actually lower the left-hand part of the tracks by 15 mm for the marbles to be able to reach the top of the ramp.

Dynamic XL 4 - Stage Conveyor

I made two mistakes while building this model: I misplaced a few parts (that was fixed rather easily) and I misjuged the overall height of the model when setting up the camera. Hence, in the timelapse, unfortunately you can't see the top of the model being built.

Dynamic XL 3 - Stair Step Conveyor

This model was relatively easy to assemble, but there's a catch - literally: Unless all of the parts of the stair slide smoothly past each other, the push rods will start to bend, which is obviously not good.
