A LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 robot that can build LEGO ducks

A LEGO robot that builds with LEGO bricks

This EV3 project is finally public, because of the strong demand of many teachers and LEGO fans all over the world. In 2014, I designed the first versions of the LEGO Duck Maker. The bigger and most famous version, the Duck Maker III, was created with the support of the LEGO Group, and was featured on the LEGO Official Youtube channel. This EV3 project was designed after a poll, where I asked  to the community which LEGO sets should I use. According to the results, I realized this EV3 project with a LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Education core set 45544, and some extra parts from the LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Expansion set 45560.

With the Duck Maker 4 EV3 project, you can experiment and have fun with a real production line that features a cartesian pick-and-place arm! Click the button below to get the building instructions.

The program is designed to be simple, easy to understand and to reproduce, and not optimized for speed.
