    Half-Track Drivetrain

    It will be cool! Love half truck! About the ratio only you need to consider is the diameter of the wheel that has to be similar with the height of the tracks, the closer the better. then if you want to get something crazy you must got for a double clutch system, therfor you won;t need any middle differential. The tricky part will be to calibrate the speed of the left and right tracks according with the steering whells. for istance a servo that while steering actuatues the 2 clutches! this way you will get a good ratio! if you won't do it, then I'll do it!!

    Axles and torque

    A good trick could be to fix the XL motors with some shock absorber in order to let the torque be dissipated trough the springs. that means you are not loosing power, you are simply releasing it in a different way! it may save your axles from twisting.

    Hello guys, is this competition still open? What's the final submission date eventually?
  13. This is the case where size doesn't matter! I mean looks huge, sure, but nothing special. I simply voted it as average. It's indeed to early to judge it.....once I'll build it I'll be able to say something more. So far looks like the front it's "sorry we didn't have the time to complete it", The front buchet arms looks so fragile, where in reality it's probably one of the strongest metal part you can find on such a big loader! As technical development looks very poor compared with the 42009, therefor the price it's not worth. Even to assembly it won't take it more then 4 hours I guess! I'll buy a couple of sets as I always do, but I'm not expecting too much from what they call "big daddy" of this year!

    Problem with LLD

    Beaver thanks, I did download SR 3D, actually designed by Sergio, but it only runs on Windows as far as I know, Would be nice to use it with my mac. Anywya as I have both I'll give it a try! Actually I was thinking to import all the briks into Catia V5 (for those who know what I'm talking about) and build my moc, test it and even stress it with weight loaded (first moc is gonna be a.....OH WAIT....not gonna tell you right now LOL!) Anyway I;ll see how it goes now with LDD first of all, cos I can still design it with LDD some parts and then build them with real bricks to see if gears works properly! Thanks, Andrea
  21. Hi ya everybody! I'm new here. First of all I would like to introduce myself as huge fan of LEGO TECHNIC since 27 years so far. Been building tower cranes, cranes, trucks and all the heavy building vehicle you can image! In the other hand being a real car designer it helps me at giving bit of style to every model I do, and nontheless I always try to keep the model as tidy as I can. Now, I decided to "refurbish" myself and get a bit more modern by using the LLD software. Reason being is living in the Internet era would be nice to share my projects with all the other LEGO fans on here. Plus I would like to create huge massive model that in realty would be tricky to realize. Downloaded, installed ...3.....2....1...go! FAIL. OK...let me say....I use on a regular basis software for 3D modeling, but this DDL looks a bit weird, it could be done in better way. First attempt: a differential case with 3 gears inside; ok for the first two gears....why can't I connect the third one? as you see in the pics the gear is transparent, it means it's not gonna snap to it's pin... where am I wrong? what should I do? Please help me...and I'll promise you day after day I'll get it better.....till the day you will see some nice mocs, (hopefully) :tongue:

    Problem with LLD

    Ok guys thanks all! I did put the third gear actually, but now I would like to rotate them all together....like simulating a bit of movements/animations! That would be a nice tip to go on with! Zblj thanks very much for you time and consideration as well, although an answer written here could be useful for other users as well. For big issues I'll definitely contact you!

    Problem with LLD

    Lol sorry for the mistake!! what a bad start then! Allright...I'll give it another try! Hopefully this time I'll succeed! feeling like a beginner! :cry_sad: :cry_sad: :blush: :blush: Ok done it!! But now if I rotate one axle the other gears don't follow it......how can I make it move all together? Should I use the hinge tool but how? I use it for rotating one axle and of course it's gear...but what about the other attached gears to it? :cry_sad: Thanks for any helps guys and sorry for the slow start!
