    *It means that this program will appear for a time and will disappear when the time expired. When it disappears, there’s only a word “Time Expired!” in the Content Editor. So, be quick!

      Hi Phan,
      It would be a great pleasure for me. If you upload the programs again of EV3 core set models and expansion set models.
      I will be really thankful to you.

      The Spinner Factory will take the spinner’s toppings that you choose and put it in the spinner, which is put at the “main station”. When finished, it will change into spinning mode, which will spin the spinner and release it.

    could anybody to help me how to run spin factory? I suppose we have problem with daisy chain function. It is not clear what program to download to slave and what to master module. Or slave module has to run without a program at all. Thanks in advance for advice.

    1. Catherine

      Yes, it is compatible. However, the expansion set has plenty of technic pieces, but does not have any sensors or motors. You can find these on

    First of all, the software is now free, so download it.

    Second, no more asking for code or the program. Any replies with the code or program will be deleted. That’s what I know.
