Week TechVideo, 2013 #39 - Brick Sorting Excavator

It is not the first time we post one the MisterFitzGibbon (Ibrahim FitzGibbon) wonders here.

The amazing brick-sorting excavator [1] is back again and now it is also on CUUSOO!

By hand crank or powered with a single motor, this small excavator sorts bricks by size. A purely mechanical design, with no programmable brick.

You can find a detailed description of the mechanical principles in use, at the project description at CUUSOO, and since you're there you can also give your support, if you have liked the project.

As it looks Ibrahim is still looking for volunteer builders willing to test out the LDD file before final instructions are made open to the public - You will need a massive Lego collection (including new parts) and experience building from LDD files. But you can always contact him at YT, FB, or by commenting in his CUUSOO project.


Please avoid sending requests to post specific models on this TBs section.

We understand some of you would enjoy to see your creations featured here, but please understand that because only one video gets highlighted per week, it is impossible to accommodate all the great MOCs continuously build by the Technic builders out there. They simply won't fit all and that's also not the purpose of this blog (see the header statement).

Many of your MOCs are scanned anyway and listed for later publication when they do not fit immediately. However some remain in the backlog queue just for too long and eventually loose the relevance or the publication opportunity window. As a rule of thumb, we also avoid publishing MOCs that have been featured by their authors or other fans at some other great web places dedicated to the Technic community out there. It doesn't mean that occasionally some won't get published here anyway.

Thanks for your understanding!

I sent him a Facebook message and left a comment on his YouTube video about "testing" his LDD .lxf file. This is a clever MOC!
