Now that the Modulox Channel is officially available on AndyMark.com we felt we should share some of the ways we think it could be used. The channel is a 6 ft long slotted utility piece of fury! There is very little this guy can’t do when coupled with the Modulox kits and components! You’ve already seen how it can be used to create the basketball shooter to end all shooters!
It can be chopped in half to form a drivetrain rails for a 6-8 wheel tank with lowered center wheel or outside Mechanum.
Oh, or it can be chopped into 6 pieces for 3 gearboxes all capable of gear ratio of around 212:1.
Let us know what you think! Drop us a line in the form below and if you’ve got a cool idea or use that you’d like to share send it our way. Who knows if we like it enough we may just feature it on the site!

The Modulox Shooter is a fully functional ball shooter that can allow you to prototype, test and finalize launcher design concepts. The Modulox design allows you to quickly change wheel rpm and gearing as well as wheel clamping force and distance to optimize your component and design choices. This design is robust enough to serve as a final solution but modular enough to answer all your questions on the test bench. Make sure to get your Modulox components at AndyMark.Com/Modulox or click the picture below.
This ball shooter was primarily built from a Modulox Channel, Lunchbox Kit, and a few additional Not in a Box components and AndyMark parts. See the full parts list in the drawing below! If you have questions about what motors can be used with Modulox kits check our Motors for Modulox Post!
Check out the BOM Drawing for component list ( We apologize for some items appearing twice with two separate quantities, the part total is correct and we are working to consolidate the list!! )

Updated! We’ve simplified the list of components so that it’s a bit easier to order, follow the link to buy.To build a similar shooter here’s what you’ll need:
Option 2 (With plenty of parts left over for further prototyping!):
Note: While iR3 Creative offers Modulox in kits and as a product line, the Modulox Shooter is not intended to be a product and is simply a reference tool and community resource. Please make sure any and all design choices are entirely within competition rules and fit your teams design intent. We are excited to see how everyone improves the design over the course of the season.
