[KEY TOPIC] Official LEGO Sets made in LDD

4710 posts in this topic

Thanks for comment and suggestion 'Superkalle'. I just try something new. We know that everybody can delete that and re-save (overwrite) in seconds while first time open it. It shouldn't be a big problem right?

Nah, it's not a major problem off course. Sorry if I came off a bit harsh :blush:

4554 - Metro Station Theme: Trains 9V

4554.png

The lxf-file.

Errors:

  • again the plates don't fit underneath the elevated platform
  • BL part x53 (rail sign) isn't part of LDD, so isn't part 7026 (old white window). I used placeholders instead.
  • BL part 4033 (bigger white and black window) also isn't part of LDD, I used part 6556 instead.
  • all printed bricks are wrong. I used similar ones to indicate the printed parts.
  • all stickers are missing
  • is "gold metallic" the right color for chrome gold (BL color ID 21)? I didn't find it in Superkalle's color chart. :look:

Chrome gold is 310 Metalized Gold. So if that's what you used for the coins then it's correct.

My dad had this train station when I was a kid. It's a real beauty.

Thanks 'ADHO15', And good job that you build the 10220 so fast.

The removed parts is #44570 roof 4x4 with forks (fold table). The bug is a 4x4 plate can not connect to under of it by 8 studs.

I fix the Rear hatch, 30377-3731 errors and add roof cloth Pics and lxf

Thanks, bbqqq! Well done. :thumbup:

I did notice that error when building but thought I'd found a way around it when they did go together. LDD must have changed its mind. :grin:

7950 Knight's Showdown - Theme: Castle – Kingdoms

lxf file

Darnit, I keep telling myself that I'm not going back to this, but then I notice color errors in a thumbnail and feel I have to step in.

  • The streamer (4495) should be colored 297 Warm Gold (BL's Pearl Gold), not 24 Bright Yellow (BL's Yellow).
  • The black 1x1 cones should use brick 59900, not 4589.
  • The correct decorations for the dragon knight's legs and face are available. The face can be seen with the decoration tool (depending on your screen resolution), but all the decorations can be downloaded in my LDD Decorations file (you may have to scroll down).
  • The two 1x1 round bricks (3062) and 1x1 plate with clip (60897) should be colored 199 Dark Stone Grey (Bricklink's Dark Bluish Gray) rather than 208 Light Stone Grey (Bricklink's Very Light Bluish Gray).
  • The 3M Technic axle with stud (6587) should be colored 138 Sand Yellow (Bricklink's Dark Tan) rather than 283 Light Nougat (Bricklink's Light Flesh).
  • The shield (3846), Technic half-bushings (32123) and Technic pins with studs (4274) should all be colored 194 Medium Stone Grey (Bricklink's Light Bluish Gray), not 208 Light Stone Grey.
  • The lion knight's helmet (4503) should be colored 298 Cool Silver Drum Lacquered (Bricklink's Metallic Silver) rather than 315 Silver Metallic (Bricklink's Flat Silver in sets from 2010 and later). Incidentally, 298 Cool Silver Drum Lacquered isn't available by default in LEGO Universe mode, which you seemed to use for this model, but it is in LDD Extended Mode. Have you unlocked that yet? I'm sure you'll enjoy the wider selection of parts and colors.
  • The dragon knight's helmet (89520) and battle axe (3848) should be colored 316 Titanium Metallic (Bricklink's Pearl Dark Gray in sets from 2010 and later), not 199 Dark Stone Grey.
  • The sword on the decorative stand should be colored 316 Titanium Metallic, not 194 Medium Stone Grey.
  • The 2M Technic pin/axles (6562) should be colored 5 Brick Yellow (Bricklink's Tan), not 283 Light Nougat.

It can take a long time to learn the correct parts and colors to use in particular situations. I'd recommend using Superkalle's LDD Manager, a useful tool with its own built in color reference file and part lookup table. You can even import a Bricklink inventory to automatically generate all the necessary bricks on LDD! It's a fantastic resource to use when building on LDD.

It's also a good strategy to have the set's Bricklink inventory open while building it on LDD. Bricklink isn't infallible, but it's a good way to be sure what color a part should be in since building instructions and photographs aren't always entirely clear. It can also be a good resource for distinguishing two near-identical parts, like the cones in this model.

Also, sorry if I sound like an aloof know-it-all. I spent a long time studying LEGO's color names and numbers even before I began using LDD regularly, so I got a bit of a "head start". Back then I used to confuse color names horribly. Nowadays I like to try and educate others, but really it's a lot for anyone to remember, and often I still have to look things up myself. I hope the two things I recommended (LDD Extended Mode and LDD Manager) help you get adjusted to LDD's complexities and enhance your building experience!

Errors:

- Mast piece does not exist in LDD, have built custom replacement.

- Sail and string also does not exist.

- Shield printing replaced with color of plastic. Head printing replaced with classic smile.

- LDD doesn't allow the dragon wings and body (on figurehead) to attach to the central brick, I've put them right next to where they should be.

A pair of other notes:

- shields should be coloured according to the colour of the plastic, not the colour of the printing. This is valid for all other bricks.

- try to replace missing pieces with custom solutions. So we will not see the top of the mast suspended in the air, for example! :tongue:

- if you can't find a proper decoration for a minifig face, you can use the classic face ( :classic: ) as replacement.
