  1. [VIDEO] Getting better at LEGO Technic

    I SO agree with this, this in not all that expensive of a way to expand your collection and it massively improves your builds. I do tend to have self-control problems while browsing bricklink...
  2. well, I began with a concept of a cart that could role on multiple sides and could be grabbed,lifted and pushed in several ways. from there, I just started making the segments, rebuilding each and every one like 10 times to perfect it. I also built four more modules that I ended up not using, but designing is half the fun for me so I don't mind. The order in witch the modules were built is also not chronological at all, and I built 2/3 working backwards :P. The motions on the video of you ride look really nice by the way. I love the way everything unfolds, it looks really neat. I would have gone with a worm wheel folding mechanism as well, but this turned out even more interesting! You managed to inspire me wit that one It doe spin rather peaceful... does your ride have a death-mode to? If I would run the g-force simulator on mine at full speed the thing would go berzerk and the entire tower would bend back and forth :P ( I'll see if I can find a video).
  3. With ZERO intent to self promote, I know serveral LOL
  4. Great MOC! And welcome I like the mechanics of it all, curious about the video! So far I do agree with @Erik Leppen That massive gap makes it look out of proportion and unrealistic. IRL a gap like this would also cause loads of unnecessary wind drag and turbulence when riding(I guess the same goes for the top). Moving it forward and integrating the booth and sigh in the trailer would definitely improve this build. I do think that making it taller would make it unrealistically high... so that's a thing to work on... Anyway It's also impressive as is, I know how challenging making "rides" can be...
  5. Hey builders, I made a video about how to get better at building with LEGO technic, and I wanted to post it here so it might help some of you guys. Jim helped me with some of the research and Sariel even provided me with a few copies of his book to give away!

    Simple, but nice! Keep up the good work!
  7. GBC General Discussion

    So I started my first GBC, and I'm looking for some info I cant find... I just saw a GBC video and they talk about a first time builder using LEGO chain, and that that's a very bad idea in terms of reliability and it got me thinking Is there a list of parts that should be avoided in GBC's to make sure they survive long term operation? And if there's not can someone tell me what parts to avoid?
  8. [WIP] Renault Twizy

    I drove one once... was fun bot not really impressive This on the other hand definitely looks fun!
  9. looks great! Go BIG or go home!
  10. SBrick Requirement? (HELP)

    here is a list but its not on there...
  11. The design is VERY loosely based upon the common EOD robot's, and then I just improved wherever I could. To be honest, I got a bit stuck... I wanted more functions, but aside from what I put on this robot, what can you add to it that's actually functional? Haha, nope! It's actually quite manageable, I use my 8,4 inch tablet.
  12. I made a massive LEGO technic bomb defusal robot with 19 motors and 6 SBrick's! I've actually seen an EOD robot defuse an IED and the live saving job they do in army's and police forces around the world has always fascinated me, so I decided to build one! I love complex robotics, but to build something like this in lego technic proved to be a challenge! I really wanted to use the 2 interlocking geared rings as a basis for the 2 main arms, but that scaled up the size of this MOC drastically. To be able to power every lego power functions motor and sbrick I ended up using 5 lego PF battery boxes! I have to admit the addition of the electromagnet does not add a whole lot to the build, I just had it laying around and still had 2 free channels on my 6th SBrick :-P What do you guys think?

    Clean and minimalistic! I love it!
  14. Well... I did not give permission but I guess the use is okay... Still, weird to accidentally stumble upon my own work edit: They did link to the original video in the description.
  15. [MOC] Pinball Machine

    Very good! I'm more of a "technically complex" kinda guy but this one totally took me by surprise! Good video also, the music and editing makes it a pleasure to watch. I honistly think this is a great candidate for LEGO ideas... -simple but ingenious -fun to play -low part count (so affordable) -does not have a copyright on it -fits in the LEGO lineup as a standalone set Who agrees?
