This is the first video of the full functionality of the Lego Mindstorms – Factory 2.0 project. All video was recorded during the LegoWorld 2010 event in Zwolle (The Netherlands) from October 20th until October 27th.
A more extensive video demonstration will come later this year when I get things reprogrammed a bit to be more efficient as it currently is.
The factory is capable of building virtually anything using the 95 types of bricks available in the warehouse. Models for the factory are designed using Lego Digital Designer (LDD) and are interpretted by custom written Windows software.
After interpretting the LDD model building instructions for the factory are generated and are sent to the master NXT of the factory.
