Instructables

Hi! Here are the instructions to the multiple arm lift.

Here's a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0IF4ZdzzzVs




This isn't the exact same as the video though, because I forgot to make the instructable when I made this.

Nah, this has a name. This part holds the ball dispenser, I just can't summarise it into a title.

Step 2: Extra safety to that part

This section fits on top of what's been built so far.
It should give a clear view where the arm comes to.

Step 3: The ball dispenser

As the name explains.

Step 4: Adding the dispenser

Again, self explanatory.

Step 5: Roll into dispenser part 1

This section will hold the path coming into the dispenser.

Step 6: Roll into dispenser part 2

Here's the actual track the ball goes on.

Step 7: Putting that part together

Here's the side bit attached to the dispensor bit with the path on it.

Step 8: Adding 4 red rods

Just get 4 red rods and add them like in the picture.

Step 10: Adding it in

This fits in to the four red rods. All together it didn't fit into the picture, so that's why it's split into 2 steps.

Step 11: Layer 1

Layer 1 excluding the main base. There should be a missing blue rod (that's where the lower arm comes).

Step 12: Sticking it on

Now stick that layer to the rest of the lift.

Step 13: Layer 2

Now the second layer. This time there are 2 missing red rods. They get in the way of the crankshaft.
You might realise extra parts sticking out, they're to hold the motor.

Step 14: Adding the second layer.

The bit on the side should help with the orientation.

Step 15: Layer 3

This is layer 3, as the name says. Like layer 1, it's missing a blue rod.

Step 16: Adding layer 3

Sorry about the photo, the side bit should clear things up.

Step 17: The motor

This part is for the motor (of coarse).

Step 18: Adding the motor

This motor attaches to the side part.

Step 20: Adding that rod with spacers

Here is a demonstration where the rod goes.

Step 21: The crankshaft

This is a doulbe crankshaft which is why there's no room for two extra red rods. (an excuse to save pieces).
