    LEGO Technic Turbo Polyp / Kraken

    Like i said earlier: patience is everything :) Project is on hold now for a few weeks. Abput the question to use motors in the arms: I dont use motors on purpose because: 1. I have to make a second slipring contact around the main cilinder and that is almost impossible 2. Micromotors are way too expensive. 3.M motors in the arms ary too heavy and i have to build in a receiver inside the cilinder = impossible due lack of space. 4. I really like to build a challenging model. To use gearconnections from the center up was a real challenge for me to build. To use motors is too "simple" in perspective of "Lego Technic" Battery cost? True, i for now i use the batteryboxes, but i will use 9 volt adapters instead to power up the motors. Techniccrack

    Yep. Because there are an even number of joints between the two arms.

    Very simple actually. 2 universal joints in between two arms on the outside of the main cilinder

    Thnx for the comments. An update will be posted in a few weeks. Last month and this month we have a home renovation and a lot of work to do. The spider project is on hold right now. About the floor: ive made a LDD design of it with wedge plates and normal plates. It turned out very nice with no big gaps.So the floor will be rebuild but i have to order the parts. But it will be next month (Or maybe even later) before i can finish up the model) The exhibition is in october so patience is everything:) Techniccrack

    Do you have plans to build it in real life?

    No. extra stagelights (blue) strobelights will be placed in front of the model (otherwise you will be blind by it:) )

    3d printed? it an idea, but thats even more expensive. I know some people will be say its a "no go" to cut pieces, but this the only solution for me with this scale. The gabs in between will be filled up very nice with long 1x10 plates etc, so when finished up you dont clearly notice the cuts.

    Simple reason..i dont feel the need to spent 300 euros on "uncutted parts" for just the floor. This thing is expensive enough and better spend that money on the Ev3 set. Btw. Only the floor is "cutted" The small parts on the background i found on the attic. Some are a little cutted too

    Update. progress of stage building I used baseplates 16 x 32, big plates and slope plates to make the beginning of the backscreens. Theme is ofcourse "spiders" so i made a few nice graphics. In between the "gaps" there will be led strips that change color and several other functions (blink, flash etc.) 2 extra stagelights are added I still have to finish up the ground plates (parts are ordered) so that it closes up nicely, so that will be next week also the logo must be added in the middle of the backscreen hers some photos: to be continued

    thnx man, What i still have to do: LIghting on the model itself. Iam working on it right now. • The most difficult part is the lighting on the seats (previous posts). There will be el wires on the seats and arms. THe slipring must be mounted • The lighting on the center part is easy.(5 volt usb led strips with remote control. Instead of an usb i use a 5 volt small battery. • Lighting on the head will be also led strip. powered by the 12 volts slip contact on the main cilinder (through the arms to the head). The spider on top must be rebuild AND lightened also • stage effect lights (strobelights, led controlled flash lights, smoke machine. • the back stage (graphics of spiders etc) • rebuilding the cash cabin • Building the second transport trailer (this part ois not important for the exibition, and that will be the last part i would build So still busy working on it! :)
