  1. Hi everyone, sorry to revive an old thread but during iso here in Australia I decided to make some instructions for this model. They're up on Rebrickable now:

    It's a great sculpture! How did you get the kelp on without hitting another?

    Thank you! Adajacent spirals are the inverse of each other which is why they will never touch. The instructions should make this a little bit clearer:)

  2. Hey everyone, thought I'd share a fun little video I made of the robo arm that was comissioned for a music video last year. It was an interesting build due to the way the centre of gravity changes as the arm moves about. I had to redesign a lot of the components to account for this. Super happy with the geometry of the base, working a triangle onto the banana gear racks was a fun challenge! Hope you enjoy, will be releasing videos every tuesday now during isolation. Stay well:)

    Fun fact: livery design inspired by Kill Bill

  3. Hey everyone! A lot has happened since I first shared this one. I found a way to access an additional speed out of the setup, and I also changed one of the gear ratios to access even more different patterns. I even had time to make a video and instructions, crazy times indeed. These are the first instructions I have made with studio, super happy with the result! Here is a link to instructions:

    Hope we're all doing well at the moment and getting to spend some time with our Lego!

    Nice to see an unconventional C model ! Should be a lot of fun.

    I love unconventional technic stuff! Technic is already considered unconventional in Australia so this makes it really unconventional haha. Instructions are up now if you want to have a go:)

    This is incredibly clever!  Really cool.

    Cheers, glad you like it :thumbup:

    Really unexpected thing to be made out of Land Rover! Interesting, is it right to call it C-model if the original set has no B-model at all? ;)

    Yeah why not? Milan's trophy truck is probably more of a b model than this though!

  4. Hey everyone,

    As soon as I saw the defender set and heard about its ambitious gearbox I knew I was gonna get it! Loved the set but felt that it didn't show off its engineering enough so I set off on building a B model for it.




    It has two speed gearboxes for each arm and a four speed gearbox for the turntable. 



    Still has a few tweaks needed but for the most part all major mechanisms are in place. It's based off the design of my V2 spirograph which makes use of the sets differentials. I was worried about the stability of it as it is hand cranked, however I was pleasantly surprised with the results. The finished prints almost hide imperfections when viewed as a whole. 


    I love this set, looking forward to see what others come up with. Once I am happy with everything I will make some intsructions and a full video of it, just wanted to share it with you all. Peace:)

    Personally, I think the vocals could use some work :wink: ... but it's still fun and your Technic creations look great!  Definitely looking forward to seeing more about those.  :classic:

    Yeah, it definitely was a bit of fun. I'm excited to share them, haven't put out anything in well over a year now:0

  6. Hey everyone, thought I'd share a project that I worked on. A few months I was approached by a guy who asked me to build a robot that could self replicate for his music video out of lego. Doing a lot of music stuff myself I thought it would be a cool way to meet some new poeple and have a bit of fun. I built the yellow arm specifically for the vid, and brought in some other contraptions that I have been working on to give the idea of a production line type setup. I'll be doing a video on the arm by itself and a more detailed write up of it in the next few weeks, in the meantime enjoy the video here:

    This is amazing! It doesn't get the recognition it deserves! How do the gearboxes work?

    Thanks for your kind comment. Starting from the top, the first two gearboxes select the primary speed of the arms. The input is from the motor and the outputis into one side of a differential. The central gearbox not only controls the speed of the turntable, but the input to the secondary gearboxes. These gearboxes feed into the other side pf the differential and add/subtract rotations in the arm based on the turntable. Hope this helps :p

  8. Hey everyone! Finally found some time to shoot a video for my second spirograph. 


    I actually had this finished over a year ago but you know how life works sometimes:) Thanks to PG5200 for describing to me how his V5 works which largely inspired this one.


    To address the question I get asked all the time at exhibitions "Can you get two going at once?" I came up with this:


    These are drawn simultaneously, which you can see in the video here: 

    Thanks everyone:) I'll have an LDD file on the way shortly

  9. Hey everyone, after a bit of a hiatus here is what I have got to show:

    I displayed this as part of this year's GBC circuit at the Brickvention here in Melbourne. I made it to answer what I guess is the one question GBCers get asked a lot. I was inspired by Nico71's brilliant sculpture and thought i would have a crack! Hope you enjoy:)
