That is cool! five star and a favorite!


Neat looking! Does this use a pneumatics set?


Pressure gauge, shutoff sensor, pressure release, and pumping mechanism. Everything a compressor could have. I guess I'll just have to give it five stars.


Nice improvement on my original design! That is the touch sensor on top for?


Nice! ;)

This is a small Lego compressor, consisting of two small pumps and a small piston for pressure monitoring. The system of the compression unit and the pressure sensor is from ,,NXDave''. I built my version here, and i have wrote a program and an instruction manual. The Compression unit: The compression unit comprises a NXT-Motor, two small pumps, a small piston, two touch sensors, two air tanks, a pressure gauge(Manometer) and two switches. The Control Unit: The control unit is a NXT-Brick with two switches for additional tasks. The Program + Building-instruction: The program includes an auto-stop system at elevated pressure (2.5 bar), a temperature warning system at long use (3 minutes) and a contolsystem if a motor is connected. I have attached a LDD file and some pictures. The program comes, because i cannot upload the program :-(
