    will it sort just the ordinary lego bricks as shown in the picture, or will it sort other bricks such as large plates and gears? like Ignacio I would really appreciate it if you would please share the program, thanks!

      Hi iain

      You need to buy or borrow at the library a Lego EV3 Discovery Book to enter the book’s password to access the Brick Sorter for EV3
      You can also access it from the book’s download page

      We are having the same problem from time to time. The bricks do not always come down and the sensor then thinks the empty space is blue. Any tips for us?

    There is another colour sorting robot called sort3r and it does 2×4 brick sorting quickly. just search up sort3r in google an it’ll pop up with sort3r-an ev3 brick sorter. the instructions for the brick chute, the robot and the program will be there. the robot works like a charm. does red, blue, yellow, green, black, white and brown.

    I don’t know where the programming instructions are. I got the building in but I can’t find the program. Could you tell me which page I could find it on?
