  1. Didumos69, I was wondering what the gear ratios were for the Sequential 8-speed transmission tunnel? I'm just about done working on building instructions for that one.
  2. I'd like to see that done, very interesting.
  3. Thanks for the tip. I use Stud.io to convert LDD to LDRAW and haven't had any headaches yet.
  4. Didumos69, There may be a mistake in your LDD file for Centered HD 4 speed AWD.. The red 16t clutch gears have a space between them and the transmission driving rings.

    Tribute Model 8880 Evo

    I've been admiring this Attika "Tribute 8880" for a long time. Wanting to build it. But just not able. This LDD file is the icing on the cake!! Thank you Void_S! I will be making building instructions.
  6. Didumos69, Thank you so much for the LDD files. Is this "Tunnel" the same as your previous "short" version? Yes, your explanation makes sense, I got that, but I need to see it too. Yesterday, I was thinking about, for example how Blakbird on "Technicopedia" colors all the gears involved for speed 1 & then colors speed 2 a different color & speed 3,etc. Sariel does it in his book too. But on these wonderful sequential transmissions I want to learn how it goes when changing from one speed to the next. I'm a visual and tactile learner. I need to see it and get it into my hands. Using your LDD files helps with that. I would guess most most AFOLs learn like me. Anyways, Thank you for all the pictures and 3D files in this thread. I open them in Stud.io, then export them as LDRAW and work on them in MLCAD, then LPUB3D, Crazy, huh!? I did the 4 speed centered and was working on the tunnel but I will start again on this version and these other three. I'm trying to become proficient at making Building Instructions.
  7. Hey Didumos, That looks great! Do you have any LDD files yet. I ordered again from Lego for more of these parts. I'm learning a lot. I still have a hard time following the active gears in a given speed. After the 3rd or 4th gear pair it starts to get confusing, especially when everything is spinning. I guess if I build enough of these things it will start to sink in. Can't find a tutorial that speaks about gear train or is it drive train or maybe both are correct. BTW i've been working on making BI for these gearboxes of yours. About the time I was getting done with one, You had to go and make a better version (2L shorter). Just kidding! I enjoy the process.
  8. Are the gear ratios of the short version the same as the original LEGO Technic - Sequential 8-speed transmission tunnel with rotary catches II ?
  9. Philo, I'm making BI with LPUB3D. I'm using 35185,35186 and they are working fine. 35188 appears on the page but not in the PLI or BOM. I don't know what to do.
  10. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Philo!!! They have been used!
  11. Here is the link to the Rebrickable post: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-15662/1963maniac/24-leg-studless-strandbeest/#mocs Watch Rebrickable for the 12 leg and 16 leg versions.

    New trains, delayed?

    Double VIP points I believe is for online orders. Check the LEGO online store.
  13. I made my own 20t gears w/ clutch. I also made a 24t gear with clutch. Just wanted to try some things with it. Both gears have the older style clutch. These gears work great with either 2L or 3L driving rings and either driving ring extension. BTW, I now have the new parts.
  14. Yes, I use a 3/4 x1 1/2 inch. You can use them to trim when done cutting. I've rearranged all my switches. I've even made my own double crossover. Works great, looks good and is MUCH cheaper.
