I've just finished making 5563 - Racing Truck from the Model Team, and I was a bit disappointed that a large part was unavailable, so I set about making one.

71972 - Vehicle, Grille Guard (Exclusive to set 5563-1)

LXF (LDD 4.3.6)

Here's another attempt at recreating it, in case the one above isn't suitable for a MOC:

My creation: Posted Image

This part has all the connection points of the original, but the lightning bolt is a little small. I was also unable to reproduce the exact color scheme.

You cannot import new parts in LDD, and these parts are complex and not easy to reproduce using a brick build solution.
Are you sure these parts are not in LDD?

Look if the hints of this topic help you.

EDIT: I took a look, it seems the parts are not available.
Anyway you can request that here, maybe the LDD Team will consider your request.

I got in the spirit of building some old Legoland sets, and I needed a couple of these.

I'm going to try and make this next, and I am absolutely dreading it, because I already know that it won't look good.

This is more a of a curio, since I doubt it can be used like the real part would.

3680c01 Turntable Disassembled

LXF (LDD 4.3.6)

Hitting Num 5 will cause the camera to "disappear" due to the bricks being 5000CM off.

Again, hitting 5 will mess up camera due to same method of disassembly as the turntable.

When I'm no longer addicted to Lego I maybe get some time to get a real signature. But when I'm no longer addicted to Lego I do not need a signature here as well.

LUModder - how did you do this? I have seen the tricks to remove the components, but they were always tied to the original. I could separate the arm, for example, but it would always be linked to the torso and I couldn't move them independently.

Why LDD has so many missing parts, why LDD has a lot of collision problems, why Lego does not improve LDD in these areas (more than marginally)?
They don't want us with a powerful tool or it is too costly to them?

The latter. Not only does the LDD team have a limited budget (since it's a division of Lego that does not produce its own profits), but the team itself is limited in scale and the amount they can do. I think LDD is doing perfectly fine, considering that. They're working in close collaboration with us AFOLs via the Ambassador program, and while updates are spread out I would say the improvements in all the areas you mentioned are far more than "marginal". I use LDD as my primary CAD software, partly due to the intuitive controls and interface, and partly because its part selection tends to favor newer parts more than other design programs (especially in constraction categories). And I've seen significant improvements in the areas you mentioned over the course of the past few updates. It'll probably never have every part from over the course of Lego's history, but it's got a wide selection that's growing all the time. And it seems that the most significant glitches and errors are usually fixed in the next update after they're brought to the team's attention. So I really can't complain.

That's an okay rendition but you do know that the IR Receiver is on LDD already, right? It's part 58123.

My first post on Eurobricks (I think) :look:

I thought I would post up a couple parts I have modified and built to assist me making LDD models with the old pirate hull types. I can not claim to be the ultimate creator of these hull parts as they came from Marco999's wonderfull renegade runner model here:

http://www.eurobrick...300#entry877255

I did however take and carefully peel away the rest of the bricks and then modify the design into the large hull type. The horrid colors are hopefully to allow easy part selection when you are recoloring the bricks :)

Hi,

I'm working on a MOC for the TC6 competition in the "Lego Technic, Mindstorm & Model Team" sub-forum, and needed to make a representation for the Pneumatic air tank in order to remake the model in LDD. I couldnt find any that fully met my requirement, so i made this. As you can see it has side holes that are half a stud holes the changes before they change to cross just like on the real air tank. The bottom is missing a hole, and does not have the cross axle conections half way in, but visually its quite close to the real thing.

Posted ImagePosted Image



The .lxf can be found here.


-ED-


EDIT: Thanks for moving this to the correct topic. I'm not usually around this end of the forum, so I didn't know there was a collection for custom bricks.


Edited by Nazgarot, 11 January 2015 - 03:43 PM.

We are traveling through time, forward... That is an amazing prospect.
