Lego GBC Modules for Beginners

I'm frequently asked, "What are some good starter modules" for newcomers to Lego Great Ball Contraption?

To help answer that question, I have compiled this list of 5 modules that are small, easy to build, and reliable.  I have personally tested all of these modules and keep them in my collection.  These modules use different lift mechanisms: Conveyor, Tipping Ramp, Ball Pump, Wheel, and Cardan Lift.

WM01 - Small Conveyor


BrickWorld 2018 Pump

Stackable Wheel

Compact Cardan Lift

All of this information now lives on it's own page here @ as a part of my "Discover GBC" information section.

Have you built any of these modules?  Which one do you like the most and why?


  1. Oh nice! I haven't built a couple of these and am starting to get back into GBC again, will obviously get some video and share it on the Discord when I do!

    1. Time to start building again Brian!
