Do you have ideas for Lego constructions that you’ll never get time to actually build? If you do then this Lego machine built from Lego can take your virtual 3-D model and assemble it using Lego bricks.
The 3-D assembler machine uses three Lego Mindstorms NXT Bricks, along with 9 NXT motors.
To created its designs the machine retrieves a brick from the feed system (which must be fed into it by human assistants) and places it in the exact location where it should be by using an axle-based release mechanism.
Currently the design works with 1×2, 2×2, 3×2, 4×2 and 8×2 Lego bricks but can’t print Lego blocks or use NXT blocks and motors at the moment.
