A module I designed for the french meeting setechnic 2010. Including free building instructions.
The functioning is very easy : the motor drives a worm gear with a 24t which drives another 24t. Two crank-connecting rod system give the wave movement to the main banister. A other crank-connecting rod system with a push bush operate the lifting of the drip tray. I have created the building instructions with SR3D builder for the building and Lpub4.0 to create the instructions. The result is great and readable, like official building instructions from Lego. If you have working trouble, lift slightly the drip tray (1 stud).
The building instructions are free to download :

Yeah I can’t get this to work, either. I changed out the 4 vertical shafts from 10L to 12L, but the bin/hopper binds up on the track (there’s no clearance or gap) and the timing of the track seems off. The crank that lifts the bin just jams over-Centre for me, too. Any ideas?
very good. pls could u post instructions for other gbc modules
Very good. I built it with a slight problem. I needed to use 2×12 axles for the far arch otherwise it is too short. It’s a very well conceived mechanism – very impressive. 🙂
What doesn’t work ?
It’s an good idea but this module does not work unfortunately.
Hi! Nice module, very visual, i’ve located some errors in the instructions, but they are minor, as the 12 axles instead of 10 ^^ aso I’ve had to make two tooth offset to it to work properly.
Thanks for the instructions, I hope that the instructions of my GBC module were abailable soon but i don’t know to use the cad programs…
[…] The instructions of the model are here. […]
I have bought it on Bricklink.com

The GBC portion of the video starts at the 3:10 point.
I just built this GBC module using the Parts List on Rebrickable: http://rebrickable.com/catalog/nico71/gbc-module-the-wave . Thanks for sharing, Nico71!
