  1. @Ivan_M Since you do a lot of Technic, have you considered using LDCad? Admitedly I am much more used to LDCad than to Studio, but I think that LDCad is really easier to use, especially for Technic.
  2. Indeed... MPD headers in parts are cheerfully ignored by Studio. You can make it work with manual inline of contents and placement of the needed files in appropriate folders, but it's becoming arcane!
  3. I agree with you that (at least for for Technic models) Studio convenience is still far away behind LDCad. But rendering is very good, and instruction maker is outstanding. See a quick review of Studio I wrote on LDraw forum: https://forums.ldraw.org/thread-22940-post-29412.html#pid29412
  4. Sorry for the late answer... to download file, right click on the link ("download mpd"), then "save link as" (or similar, it depends on your browser). Then follow the other suggestions to open the file. LDCad is highly recommended!

    If you got the hub to light on, well, you made the job ;) Now the drawbacks; It is not fullproof (you can easily put the battery backwards, with chances of frying the hub) the capacity of 9V batteries is low compared to AAAs you lose bottom antistud connectivity.
  7. Yes, the tool of choice is stl2dat (command line tool) that does work fine... just remember to use the proper scaling (1 ldraw unit is 0.4mm, so the scaling factor depends on the unit used in your stl file - may be mm, cm or inches). If you prefer a windows gui, stl2dat is also available in LETGUI distribution.
  8. @Talles I started the LDraw model from photos sent by @BusterHaus then completed it when I received the part form s@h, so I have no DXF/DWG. But you can try to export the LDraw model to .stl (using LDView). No guaranty that the exported model will be perfectly exact (should come close) and it will certainly not be "watertight", which is a requirement for 3D printing (but your printer software may be smart enough to figure the proper shape anyway).
  9. S-brick is available from LDraw parts tracker: http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptscan.cgi?q=s-brick
  10. Now available on LDraw Parts Tracker! http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cg.../35188.dat AFAIK it completes the list of Chiron Technic parts (still missing: license plate and... stickers!)
  11. @BusterHaus No problem with DXF. DWG should be OK too, but I've not tried often. Thanks in advance!
  12. I am eagerly waiting for good photos in cartesian directions (top/bottom/left/front) and dimensions (diameters, height) to make the LDraw model!
  13. Extension ring done: http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cgi?f=parts/35186.dat
