This week’s blog on the Lego Dacta 1030 / 1031 set brings us to card #16. This time around the card demonstrates the use of pulleys and structure to lift a heavy weight from position below a fixed crane. There are two models on the inside of the card with full instructions, the first is fairly simple to build the second a little more complex. Both models function and demonstrate the principles taught with this card rather nicely.
On the back of the card there is a third rather complex yet very fun model to build and play with. Running the string for this model was a little tricky with my large fingers, only took about 3 tries to finally get all the pulleys done.
Below is a picture of the first model from the instructions.
Here is a picture of the alternate model from the back of the card.
And the complete instructions for the Dacta 1031 Card 16.
