Lego GBC Cardan Lift V2 is my variation of Torbjorn Soderstedt’s Cardan Lift V2.
It uses Girolamo Cardano’s Cardan Mechanism from the 16th century to convert rotation to linear motion.
This module is setup for night running and uses one of my custom Lego UV/Led lights, with the UV shining on the balls and the lego light passing through a trans-blue brick to color the module gearing.

Lego GBC Cardan Lift V2 packs into a single 24x18x10″/60x46x25cm bespoke cardboard box.
In order to fit, it breaks into several key pieces.
- Input bin.
- Output chute.
- Cardan Lift.
- It is also packed with Lego GBC Super Tower Battle as I run these modules together.
You can read about other boxes here Boxes for Lego GBC Modules.
