Lego Components

DISCLAIMER This guide demonstrates the mechanical construction ONLY (not electronics etc)

Building Instructions

  • Download instructions from here
  • Build the base
  • Attach a servo motor to the SMALL gear (NOT the large one) in order to get high torque
  • Get some wire zip ties and pass them through the holes of the beam frame (located at the bottom)
  • Remove the screws located on the hot melt glue gun and open it in two halves
  • Remove the trigger and re-close the hot melt glue gun
  • Place the hot melt glue gun below the beam frame with the nozzle pointing down
  • Tie them tightly around the hot melt glue gun; between it and the beam frame
  • Enjoy!
