GBP - Workshop Module 01

Today I'm releasing the v1.0 instructions for my simple conveyor which I'm calling:
Great Ball Pit Workshop Module 01

Instructions for "GBPWM01" can be found on the instructions page.

It is built using 194 pieces which includes a Lego Power Functions M Motor.  Alternatively you can rig it up to run with shared power fairly easily (This will be shown in the upcoming video).

Output height is decent so you can rig up a nice ramp or widget to get the balls to the next module.  (I'll be showing a few of these in the video as well)

Some people have asked me why I called it Workshop Module 01.  Well I think it's so small and useful, I would use it as a workshop module.  As well I will be making a few videos showing it, modifying it, and whatever else I can think of.

Note:  This is designed to run at around 50-75% speed when using a PF M Motor, so I would recommend using a 9V Train Controller with this module.  Alternatively you could use the Infrared receiver and the IR Remote to set the speed as well.

The video will be out on the YouTube channel on Tuesday.

Enjoy, and please let me know if you find any issues with the module so I can iterate and update the instructions.
