Lego GBC Compact Carden Lift is a module I designed for the BrickFair Virginia 2019, BrickFair NJ 2019, and BrickFair AL 2020 GBC Workshops.
It is based around the Cardan Mechanism and uses an 8 and 16 Tooth gears to achive the primary relationship.
The cardan-gear mechanism invented by Girolamo Cardano in the 16th century is used to convert rotation motion to reciprocating linear motion without using linkages or slideways.
The module was designed from August 2018 through to Febuary 2019 when the parts were ordered, final box and instruction designs were worked on from April to June 2019 with the completed kits being tirelessly assembled by Stuart.
100 kits were sold at BrickFair Virginia 2019 with over 30 of them making there way onto the table for the GBC loop.
Special thanks go to Todd Webb, Stuart Roll and Tom Atkinson for the opportunity as well as KC Ross and Brian Bell for testing and sugesstions.
