  1. 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

  3. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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:)


  7. Interesting! I've got a bunch of that piece and I always though it looked very interesting and useful, yet I never found a way to use it (or saw anyone else use it) :laugh:

    I have seen it used by thirdwigg in one of his unimogs as a portal axle before, nice and sturdy!

    Jeez this is looking good, lookin forward to the final product. Really motivating to get into supercars
