Motorized MILS Waterfall


Last Updated . Click "Updates" above to see the latest.

This is a motorized MILS waterfall that runs on three medium motors. There are two separate waterfall sections and some fish that jump out of the water at the base of the waterfall. The modular integrated landscaping system (MILS) standard allows a builder to easily connect different landscape modules in interchangeable ways. It can be powered by LEGO battery pack.

The moving waterfall is accomplished using Technic tank tread pieces mounted on large gears. Thin lift arms are attached to the those tread link pieces, and then plates are attached to the lift arms using technic half pins. Finally, tiles and cheese slopes are attached to the plates to create the water surface.
