Redstone empowers you to fabricate an infinite array of conceivable contraptions, contrivances, and gadgets. By harnessing redstone, one can optimize movement, transmit messages over vast distances, or even fabricate captivating games. However, a redstone creation doesn’t necessarily have to serve a purely functional purpose to justify its construction. The piston conveyor belt, for instance, genuinely propels items along a designated trajectory and although it can be employed for transportation purposes, its construction is also worthwhile for its inherent value. Occasionally, the sheer intricacy of a contraption in itself bestows it with purpose.
How to Construct the Piston Conveyor Belt
With its utilization of dual sets of pistons, this mechanism orchestrates a mesmerizing array of interconnected components. Its construction is not only straightforward but also exudes a captivating simplicity and elegance in its design.
Step 1 Create the Piston Array
Step 2 Add Redstone Timers
(1) Outside of the regular piston array, place alternating redstone wire and redstone repeaters, two per row as seen above. Set the repeaters to their 4th position by clicking them three times. (2) Connect them together with redstone wire as seen above.
Step 3 Create a Redstone Pulser to Power the Conveyor Belt
(1) We’ll need a redstone pulse to power the machine, so we’ll create a simple redstone pulser. To do so, place a redstone torch in a hole in front of a sticky piston. , (2) Place two repeaters so that their current will run into the piston. Connect the repeaters and the torch with redstone wire. (3) Complete and activate the pulser by placing a block on the sticky piston. , (4) The pulser should now be powering itself while the piston now moves in and out. (5) Run redstone wire from the redstone torch to the conveyor belt’s redstone wiring. , (6) Here is the connection of the two devices from another view.
Step 4 Run and Test the Conveyor Belt
(1) It is here that you may edit the timing of the machine to be faster or slower. To do so, change the amount of repeaters and their timings associated with your machine. Here I have only three repeaters in front of my machine set to the 4th position. (2) If you choose to change your machine’s timing you must match it’s timing to that of the pulser. So here I have matched my pulser to my machine by only placing one repeater at the 4th position. (3) The timing of your conveyor belt just effects how fast it moves, it works fine regardless of this. To test my conveyor I have dropped several green, orange, and purple wool blocks into the machine. , (4) Here the wool blocks have moved almost completely from the left to the ride of the conveyor belt. , (5) Here are the blocks deposited on the far right side of the machine. In this present setup, I was able to move these wool blocks six blocks in a matter seconds. Although this conveyor is only six blocks wide, you could in theory build a conveyor as long as you wanted to.
