  1. Check Craigslist, ebay, yard/garage sales, "Bricks & Minifigs" store. That last one is the best for me.
  2. I would like to be able to get through replacement parts the following: Camels, sheep, cows, chickens, dogs, cats. Some of these items are very expensive because of rarity. It makes Chinese counterfeit parts seem very desirable. I would prefer LEGO!

    Roller Coaster Thread

    Here is another great design from Masao Hidaka: I'm no longer using my design since his is stronger and easier to build, plus the loop is properly spaced to join the continuation of track.
  4. That is some incredibly complicated engineering, WOW!!!!!!!!! Dare I ask if there are going to be building instructions?
  5. Similar to what happened with me. The last revision was: 2021-05-14. This is a free software so (I'm sure) it is updated in his free time.

    Looking to build a small model railroad

    If you have a PC, get "BlueBrick". Do your layout with it. Then you will know what you need.

    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    Mine is stamped 417?9, with the ? being 3,5,8 or 9. Bricklink has it listed as 74188c01 .

    Do you only buy lego?

    For me nothing beats Lego. But, ... when it comes to needing rare parts, paying $25 for a camel or a palm tree, well, that's just too too much $$!!!

    I'm not familiar with those orange pieces used for the roof. What are they?

    Thoughts on 3D printing Legos?

    My experience with 3D printed parts isn't so good. The quality of the print just isn't there. I certainly would not print very many of anything.

    [MOC] "Brick-Terre Tavern" by The Plastic Brick

    I'm not familiar with that railing on the second floor. Which set does it come from or what is the part number?

    [Wildwest] American Buffalo

    Great bison, but they live on the prairie not the desert.
  13. Very Cool!! Are there building instructions for this?
  14. I agree with toastie and would add that I have had problems with Stud,io and certain parts not rendering sometimes. I don't know why and I don't figure it out, i just go back to MLCAD. I have not had these problems with LDCAD. LDCAD is probably easier to use than stud.io, especially for flexible parts. I have not mastered either one. Her are some links for LDCAD on flexible parts modeling: http://www.melkert.net/LDCad/docs/advEdit and
  15. I would also like to know the answers to these questions. I'm still old school using MLCAD with LPUB3D. I still cannot do flexible parts. I usually just insert a picture for flexible parts. I see many building instructions that also do not model flexible parts for technic models. If Stud.io can do this, I would surely like to know how it's done! LDCAD is a program that can do flexible parts. But, that doesn't mean it's easy.
