A simple project I was given at work.
About this creation
Hi All,

About a month ago I was asked by the Operations Manager to build a model of a machine that he is wanting to have installed over the Christmas shut down period. There aren't many functions on it, although the two bin lifts automatically tilt the bin upside down once they reach the top. I was told the most important thing to do was get the main shape of each item so that the process improvement could be explained to the board of directors, and as a result, the funding for the machine could be approved.

It was a huge success! There is talk amongst the directors for me to do a full factory layout at some stage. I would have to pick the scale and start working on some automated robotic function just to give it the 'WOW' factor. Fingers crossed they decide its a good investment for future improvement planing.













Sorry all, I have been quite quiet these past few months. My goal was to have a bit of time-out before the MOCO's start. I'm still not sure if I'm psyched enough yet, but hopefully by tomorrow I will be haha! Hope you all enjoyed it, its a bit different to trees and castle, with enough imagination it could be a castle though :)
Till next time! ~Thoy

Many people think LEGO has no "real-world" applications...but your creature destroys those arguments! I hope they give you a healthy raise for this one ;)

Quoting MC Double B :D A video would be nice but if you cant do that oh well i really think its cool! :D Nice Job!
Yeah I didn't take any video's of the functions this time. Perhaps when I do a full machine line a video would be better. Thanks

Quoting Chris Phipson That is just beyond cool! And they say Lego is just for kids... pshhhaw! Can't wait to see that full factory layout! Be sure to include your sigfig HAHA! ~ Chris.

Quoting Deus Otiosus You are a lucky, lucky man. This is really the closest one can get to being a LEGO designer without actually being one. Too bad it is so hard to become one...
I sincerely agree, far too hard :(

Quoting El Barto ! Great idea applying your hobby to your profession! Gee, maybe I could try and talk someone into getting their teeth replaced with one stud white bricks?
Do it Bart! Honestly, there are enough Lego nuts out there you could probably find a willing guinea pig haha!

Quoting Leda Kat =^..^= I keep suggesting to my boss I could build him new equipment and rackings and such at work but he laughs at me... oh well. Great to be able to get some outside of the Lego world recognition for your skills.
I'm sure He'd appreciate the effort to make some scale shelving and a little pimped out fork-hoist lifting dark tan boxes. Would be a cool project :)
