How to use a Reusable geared active attachment for changing LEGO gears orientation. LIVE demo with Robot Inventor Pro Preview

In this video tutorial we look at an active attachment that uses gear wheel and the attachment is general enough to be suitable for reuse. This means that a lot of different missions could be accomplished with the same attachment. The goal of the attachment is to transfer power to a lever through a system of axles and gear wheels. It is interesting that we change the orientation of the gear wheels.

Power Switch mission model

We first build this mission models to replicate an interesting mission model from FIRST LEGO League 2012 that was called - the stove. With the FLCasts Off-Season course we are now calling it power switch. The goal is to switch the direction of the lever by rotating it.

What to do with the tutorial?

Download the program, build the robot by following the building instructions, build the attachment and the mission model. The three of them could be build from a single LEGO MINDSTORMS Robot Inventor 51515 set without any additional parts.
