Technic 24122 Compatability

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have always wondered if this part is compatible with lego technic pin holes.

I have a MOC situation where I need to have an axle thru-hole which also can be meshed with the pinholes of two beams which are 1L apart.

I could use the new technic connector  pinhole with 1L axle on opposite sides, placed sideways with a 3L pin connecting the beams but the connectors axles are too short, hence the need for an axle thru-hole.

Can the sides of part 24122 be placed inside of pinholes? even if it means having to twist it in due to it being a tight fit.

axle joiners or #2 connectors are too long also.

Regards, snipe.

Even if they fit, those ends are not full pins, more like half.

I have also dreamed, that it would be nice to have part like this, that there is axle thru, then pins and/or 1l axles on sides.

Never mind, I'll just buy some and test it out. in LDD it fits fine. I don't need the connector to click into place like pins do because the connector is sandwitched between two15L liftarms. I don't need to worry about it rotating like pins do because the motors output and axle will prevent that from happening.

Hello,

Maybe you could post a screenshot of your LDD file? This way some of us could probably tell you more about your build.

Regards,

Steph.

I don't think the usage of that part is reasonable in technic system like described. Just made a quick test in LDD, You will have uneven offset match, does not fit nor in 1/2 stud nor in 1 stud as usual.

 I recommend to use 27940 or 87082 87082.t1.pnginstead.

Here you can check, it is placed right that deep as just possible. It creates a rather odd offset:

I got it all the way in the pinhole in LDD.

Maybe I was not clear enough, I meant can somebody actually test putting it in a pinhole in real life. I will buy some but want to do when I have more different parts to order.

I'll post the lxf file soon but cannot see much point to it.

regards, snipe

Indeed, LDD allows that, I did not try it all the way, but I see some impact around the perimeter... unfortunately I don't have the parts to test.
