[KEY TOPIC] Official LEGO Sets made in LDD

4710 posts in this topic

I actually got the red brick to fit. Just pick it up, and place it, and it will snap. Normally it's an illegal build, but sometimes you can make it snap in LDD; and this is such a case.

I noticed that during the build of the set. Actually I was surprised that LDD allowed the brick to fit, as I knew it was an illegal building method I had encountered in other City trucks as well (such as 7990 Cement Mixer). But here's the reason why I left the Technic brick out and aside the truck. Yes, LDD will allow it to snap in, but if you save the thus amended lxf, close LDD and reopen LDD with this lxf, it will (sometimes, not always..... :ugh: ) recognise it as a misplaced brick and remove it. So to speak: the illegal build and the possible error warning made the lxf unacceptable according to my own quality control standards.... :head_back:

In that case, I think you made the right decision to leave it to the side :classic:

DEEZ SUM BUSTAS.

NOTE: I order my builds (model A, B, C etc.) by the order in which they appear in the instruction booklet(s). Neither the image on the box or instructions cover page, nor the complexity of the build, have any influence on my naming conventions.

ALSO: I am linking all my part descriptions to Brickset instead of Bricklink, so that I don't get sued by BrickLink GlobalCorp LLC for the £1.49 in cash that I have.

4404 - Land Busters [Model A] - theme: Designer

_4404a.png

Errors:

  • Rim part 44292 (Rim Ø 30,4 X 20) missing in LDD, replaced with part 56145 (Rim wide with cross 30 x 20)
  • Balloon tyre part 44308 (Offroad Tyre 43,2 X 22) missing in LDD, replaced with part 44309 (Tyre Normal Wide 43 x 22)
  • Part 6211 (Spiral Tube with flange) doesn't flex - nearest flexible part (64230) is not long enough to clip into part 4085 (Plate 1x1 with Holder), so both instances have been left straight
  • Use of illegal building technique described here and confirmed by legolijntje and Superkalle - part 32054 has been placed behind the model; connection replaced with a bush and a 3m Cross-axle with knob

LXF (LDD 4.3.8)

4404 - Land Busters [Model B] - theme: Designer

_4404b.png

Errors / Notes:

  • EXCELLENT THING 2014 EDITION: This overly complex model is now grouped! Because it is so annoying to put the bodywork back onto the chassis after seperating the two.
  • Rim part 44292 (Rim Ø 30,4 X 20) missing in LDD, replaced with part 56145 (Rim wide with cross 30 x 20)
  • Balloon tyre part 44308 (Offroad Tyre 43,2 X 22) missing in LDD, replaced with part 44309 (Tyre Normal Wide 43 x 22)
  • Balloon tyre part 41893 (Black Tire 68.8 x 36 H) missing in LDD, replaced with part 41897 (Tyre Balloon Wide 68.7 x 34)
  • Part 6211 (Spiral Tube with flange) doesn't flex - replaced with nearest equivalent part (64230) which allows manipulation by the flex tool

LXF (LDD 4.3.8)

4404 - Land Busters [Model C] - theme: Designer

_4404c.png

Errors:

  • Rim part 44292 (Rim Ø 30,4 X 20) missing in LDD, replaced with part 56145 (Rim wide with cross 30 x 20)
  • Balloon tyre part 44308 (Offroad Tyre 43,2 X 22) missing in LDD, replaced with part 61481 (Tyre Balloon Wide 43 x 26)
  • Balloon tyre part 41893 (Black Tire 68.8 x 36 H) missing in LDD, replaced with part 41897 (Tyre Balloon Wide 68.7 x 34)

4403 - Air Blazers [Model A] - theme: Designer

_4403a.png

LXF (LDD 4.3)

4403 - Air Blazers [Model B] - theme: Designer

_4403b.png

Errors:

  • The side windows, made by part 2362 (Wall element 1x2x3) should be tilted 14-15 degrees on the hinge bricks below them. This causes collision errors when building above them, so they have been placed upright.
  • The front windows, made by part 46413 (Shell 4x8x2 with Forks) create a "hitbox" which interferes with part of the instrument panel. These parts have been left at the front of the model.
  • None of the technic assemblies work, due to limitations with LDD. This includes the landing gear controls, and the intriguing method of making the rotor spin.
  • Rubber Band 41752 not present in LDD

LXF (LDD 4.3)

4403 - Air Blazers [Model C] - theme: Designer

_4403c.png

Errors:

  • Part 4599 (Tap) cannot be attached to part 32000 (Brick 1x2 with 2 Holes) - the knobs on top of the taps should be inserted into the holes on the technic brick. The taps have been left underneath the model.
  • Rubber Band x88 not present in LDD, replaced with part 2185 (Tyre for Wedge-Belt Wheel)

True, but on the News page they said that it will be the next set for the 'Brick Friday' promotion. Instructions are on Brickset's instruction page.

Those extra parts are the parts that need to be replaced when the prints will be available. This way they are easy to find

Ok, if it is a matter of few days, this time there is no problem.

For the future, remember that you can't post a set that has not been released yet.

Those extra parts are the parts that need to be replaced when the prints will be available. This way they are easy to find

You can provide a .lxf file with those extra pieces as a "bonus file", but the main file can't contain more pieces than those necessary to build the set.

Anyway, I think there is a best way to easy find that pieces, that is to create a group that assort the replacements.

Where is the 2654 supposed to go?

2654 is supposed to go inside the clear Plate Round 4x4 with 2x2 hole, since I replaced it with 60474, there was no hole to place 2654 in, thus I could not place it.

Aha, OK :classic:

I hope that the bug relating to the 6211 Star Destroyer is fixed in the next release of LDD.

Which one is that?
