I'm trying to figure out how to continuously lift a stream of incoming pieces up vertically, at least 10cm. This is my first real custom build attempt, so I'm very much at a loss on how to go about it. Are there books or sites or other resource likely to contain part lists and build instructions for a vertical conveyor belt?
Only thing I've found so far is this absolutely delightful video of The Great Ball Contraption, but while providing lots of inspiration, I don't know enough to reverse engineer it or even really figure out which parts are which.
I'm starting from scratch on parts, aside from the Educational Mindstorms EV3 base set.
