Conveyors: Elevators and Lowerators
2 Attachment(s)
Is there a way to construct this form of a conveyor (lowerator)? (Refer attached picture)

I have attached a model where I used the old conveyor module, and add a lot of sections to it. (Refer attached model)

Is there a faster and easier way to achieve the same?

Hi Adarsh,

So you want it to be rounded in the z-diraction and that is what is hard to achieve?

Hi Alex,

Yes, I'm looking to curve the conveyor by a certain angle in the z-direction.

I want to get the box transferred from the overhead conveyor system to the conveyor system at the ground level using that lowerator.

Hello Adarsh,

the conveyor module is typically 2D may by with a raise in height a 2 1/2 D system. You can place the conveyor system in a visual plane object and rotate the plane around an axis. That is just a workaround, because you have to find a method to rotate the items with a photoeye on entry to the new orientation.
The shape of the plane can be unvisble by unmarking "show 3D shape" in the general tab of the properties window.
