    Carousel 10257 - Elephant will not go up down

    Just tested on mine, stored since around one year, and elephant goes up and down perfectly !
  2. Frame 5x7 has the same color than trains and « LOOP » word.
  3. Same draining of battery on my MBP 2020... it’s for me the first default of studio.LDD was smooth and better user friendly.
  4. Hi ROSch, Thanks for the part ! Can you tell me if it works on studio Mac. I have imported the 3 files in: /Applications/Studio 2.0/ldraw/collider /Applications/Studio 2.0/ldraw/connectivity /Applications/Studio 2.0/ldraw/parts but don't find it in the library when I open studio. Did I make a mistake ?
  5. With the engine on top wheel, may be there is a risk that the tracks get out of the wheel under effort ? but might be ok if the racks are straightened, any doubt.
  6. Just checked mine. no frictions on drivetrains.
  7. Tractor 851 was the first set I had when I was 8 or 9. I wanted to make a new version but the set was already chosen by BrickBuildingFox for the contest. No matter ! So I will show you a studless version of the 2nd set I received few times after 851: the bulldozer 856. 856-01-original by avantime78, sur Flickr I will build it at he same scale, and try to respect as well as possible the color scheme. First step was to find the bag containing the parts, wash them, and after replace the parts (bushes, connectors 3651), brocken by the age, I built this old 856... Hopefully the gears were OK ! After I started by the bucket. I wanted it to be build with parts and not an all in one like black buckets. So here it is, the size matter the original version, 13 studs length and a flex on the Botton to close the hole. 856-02-benne by avantime78, sur Flickr 856-03-benne by avantime78, sur Flickr Now it's time to imagine and built the bull itself !
  8. Hi AnyUser, Yes it’s responsive, by use of blue axle pin in on gear, and direct mouvement given by low gear ratio.
  9. Set bought this day and started to build it. the new crossed beams looks very useful !
  10. 29. 856 revival Original set: 856 Features: raising and lowering the bucket bucket tilting Discussion topic:
  11. After your comments, here are 3 improvements: - yellow sprockets - connector 3L at the bottom of cabin - black 3L axle pin instead of brown axles 3L. thanks you all for these tips !
  12. Yes it works, no illegal build in my moc. using liftarm which are odd will be a problem because all my axle connectors linked to black axles are pair.
  13. thanks GerritvdG and Howitzer for your comment. @GerritvdG What do you mean exactly ? here are other views of the bulldozer. It has the same wheelbase as the original one, and one stud larger. I tried to keep all the details of the 856 (exhaust pipe, front gril, head and rear lights,...

  14. New bull almost finished. A test with the old tracks and actual tracks: IMG_4714 by avantime78 IMG_4713 by avantime78 I prefer with the last ones, for me, it looks better and more accurate with studless parts.
  15. I wanted to respect the original mechanism with racks. Functions are well fixed by using blue pin/axles.
  16. After brain storming, several digital and physical mokup, I hope I found a good compromise to include the 2 functions in a studless structure. There are more gears in my version but it was necessary. Here are 2 exploded views made with (new for me), LDD can't be used in my new Mac :( Blue gears for the bucket orientation. Green and red gears for lifting and lowering the bucket arms. 856 studless_Copy-02 by avantime78, sur Flickr 856 studless_Copy-01 by avantime78, sur Flickr I 've put 2 gears 36 tooth to replace the grey pulleys. I didn't found other parts, may be the steering wheel of the Ecto 1 ? work in progress !

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    Just finished to build the gardens. it’s very impressive and some interesting technics of assembly. but one thing worried me: too much use of small parts instead of a normal one. example: 3 2x1 plates instead of 6x1 plate, or 2 2x1 instead of one 4x1... Same for bricks ! lot of examples like them. I don’t understand why they do that. If it’s only to increase the number of parts on the box...
  18. once upon a time... Oh no, it was an orange 11x3 curved panel that was in my hands after dismantling the Porsche 42056. I had just read about the existence of the contest. What can I do with this panel? It suddenly found itself oriented in such a way that it reminded me of the door of an Izetta! I had found my model. Looking for photos, technical information, a little puzzled about the engine, the idea quickly drifted towards a sporty, crazy, unbridled version. As I have it at hand, the MOC will be equipped with the flat 6 of the Porsche! The only thing left to do was to find a name for it. The Izetta had a modern interpretation in the form of the Microlino imagined in Switzerland. I will therefore opt for a synthesis of the two. So here is "Ize'lino", the most dangerous micro car to drive ever designed! Suspension: Double wishbones at the front with torsion bars (7L axles) and single rear pendulum suspension. A view of the engine Steering: There is a HOG at the rear as on the technic sets of this scale, and the steering wheel is connected to the steering wheel through gears. It's a steering rack for a better précision. Tilting of the steering wheel: As I couldn't make it linked to the front door, I had the idea to ensure the movement by a mini LA controlled by a cascade of gears with the Z12 black gear on the left side behind the front left seat. here are the different gears and axles to drive the functions. Blue for steering, green for tilting the sterling wheel, and orange for transmission from engine to rear wheels. The door opens manually The rear trunk can also be opened: On the look side, there are front headlights attached to the mirrors and front turn signals integrated into the spoiler. At the rear, there are red lights, reversing lights and turn indicators. The front spoiler can be swivelled to allow mounting on the car carrier truck. Finally, the rear spoiler on top of the rear window allows the car to hit the ground at very high speed! The dimensions are L=33 x W=15 (side mirrors not included) x H=14
  19. Thanks M2m understood ! i had just to change the blancs between words by an "anti slash" and it works, many thanks.
  20. ok downloaded (safari wanted to add a .txt when saving but what must I do with this file after ? in what location/folder must I put it ? I copy and past the path of db.lif in the Terminal like that: it's give me an error and nothing else. Sorry for my insistance.
  21. Thanks for your great help M2m but it still doesn't work for me, sure I made some mistakes: - downloading LIFExtractor adds a ".html" extension after .py extension, so I delete it, right ? - Do i need to let in "Download" folder before to run the script or copy it in "Users/toitoine/Library/Application\ Support LEGO\ Company LEGO\ Digital\ Designer/" ? - when I try to run the script in terminal, (python /Users/toitoine/Library/Application\ Support LEGO\ Company LEGO\ Digital\ Designer/db.lif) I have an error: python: can't open file '': [Errno 2] No such file or directory
  22. Thanks Jester94 & M2m for you answers but I don't understand how to proceed on OS X.
  23. Congratulations for the job done ! is there a way to add these new parts in LDD for Mac OS X ?
