Puzzle 43 - 36 Parts

You ever try something twice, and do worse the second time? That’s where I’m at with Puzzle 43: I don’t remember what I did the first time, but I don’t recall it requiring so many parts! :rofl: But you know what they say: if it works, it’s good code! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

My solution is based on the no-latch version of the Puzzle 34 solution. Despite the high part count, or maybe because of it, the logic is straightforward:

  1. The first blue ball will invert the left gear bit, then trigger a red ball.
  2. If the left and right gear bits are now in opposite positions, the red ball will be intercepted.
  3. Otherwise, the red ball will trigger a blue ball, which will be intercepted.

And now I’m off to study the book solution!
