    [WIP] Rotary Pneumatic valve

    I got a little busy with college, maybe some day I will print it. Though here's the current progress from the last update. You will need Fusion 360 to open it, this program is free for makers and small businesses.

    Compact heavy ratchet joint techniques?

    I designed something like this for a fixed joint, unfortunately it doesn't ratchet, as this would effect the scale of the width of the AT-AT, though it is posable in a different positions, but it requires some disassembly to do that.

    The now change $50 per year. Probably will end up archiving all of my photos, then reupload them to imgur, though that will take like 40 hours to do with the 50 imagine s per hour cap.

    Well RIP Flickr, I guess they did some changes, and made the free accounts only able to host 1K photos, time to find another hosting site to migrate 2k of my photos to.

    [MOC] MK V Tank

    Part 44728 fixes the top issue, though not sure what to do yet for the bottom of the sponson.

    Use 1x1 brick with headlight to inset the slopes by 1/2 a plate. Also for your choice of control, I would suggest getting a Sbrick, as it is cheaper, and it is more flexible with the ability to program via the profile designer. The only major advantage for the Buwizz is it offers a higher voltage output, and an integrated battery assembly. As with your model you will need at least 2 of whatever you choose to control your model with. Also the 8z gear you are using to drive the traverse gear won't work, you need a 12z and 20z both in half bevel and this part to brace them.

    Full Size Bugatti Chiron out of LEGO

    It is probably possible to do, but you would need to almost have it shaped like an arch to anticipate the flex in the chassis, or use lots of stacked technic bricks, though I am not sure how well such a chassis would hold up when taking turns, as there could be too much flex side to side, leading to a failure. I think with such a project, it's better to be on the conservative side, as if this were to fail, it would be a waste of resources. Now time to have both cars race and see which performs better.

    It's interesting that they are running the motors on 12v, also I wonder how efficient the array of motors are in this.
  9. For me, being an avid scale scale modeler as another one of my hobbies, obtaining external dimensions is the first main goal for my MOCs, second would be functionality, depending on the significance of the functionality to the unique identity to the subject I am building can influence the importance of that versus the exterior. I believe there are many cases where the medium limits the functionality and external appearance, so some compromises must be made to accommodate those flaws. As of more recent years, I prefer to mitigate this effect, as this has been improved by having more funding to explore other options. As I currently would view a tolerance within a couple studs for good renditions of a subject, given with smaller scales, this isn't always avoidable due to the internals of the model and the fixed/bulky constraints we have for the power functions system.
  10. Maybe it's the fact that some builders strictly adhere to references and documentation to ensure accuracy of their models, claiming something that clearly doesn't resemble the subject tarnishes the reputability of the model and others like it. Maybe that's why many individuals aren't so impressed with some of Lego's renditions of the Porsche or Bugatti, as they know it can be done better, Yet the masses of non-Lego individuals flocked to those models, as if those were the ultimate rendition of their respective vehicle. Those models are deemed close enough to be considered acceptable, but if you look the disappointment of the Austin Martin released for the James Bond creator set, it vaguely resembles the DB5, failing to capture the curvature and elegance of the real world vehicle, but it does replicate the functions... is that justified? That depends on your rationale for purchasing a set. Basically you can call your model whatever you want but thats only an opinion. As for some functionality, I can see this being a compromise, if you want to justify making a very specific function that compromises the external appearance of the subject, though if one truly attempts to replicate something they will mitigate this, or find a different solution.
  11. If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, then it must be a duck... Such fallacy logic.

    You first upload it, then go to your pages, next find the file you want, and right click on the download icon, and there should be an option for copy link address. Finally paste that to your post to share with others.

    This may work, though the elevation mechanism needs some work, but a novel solution with the traverse axle behaving as the elevation actuator. https://www.bricksafe.com/files/Tommy_styrvoky/Mk V sponson gun traverse.lxf

    I use a bunch of different software, LDD is nice for quick simple designs, though I use Stud.io for doing quick renders and more difficult connections, and sometimes Ldraw based programs for exporting into instructions or Blender for making photorealistic renders. For mounting the M motors, I think you could position one below the sponson with a worm gear reduction to traverse it, and mount another one directly behind the sponson for the elevation. I have a couple thoughts for the elevation, though I am not sure at the moment. It appears you are hitting enter after each sentence. like this.

    [MOC] MK V Tank

    It still appears to be too weak of a construct, it will collapse when you apply any downwards load on the sprocket, this is a better solution, though it still needs to be tied in more to to the tan part. I would suggest using a 7l half beam and using that to connect both sides as this will help provide a rigid connection to the idler, and also use this to tie into the tan portion. Also the top and bottom pieces still need to be connected. https://www.bricksafe.com/files/Tommy_styrvoky/MK V track tensioner.lxf
