  1. It's possible to import LDraw parts (with needed subparts) into Stud.io as custom parts (until they are added to Stud.io). This makes it possible to position pneumatic elements the right way in your digital build but needs adjustment of parts list afterwards. It is cumbersome to position flexible elements in Stud.io but temporary fixings/click points can make it easier.
  2. Double warning and more when reading the other comments! Stud.io will mess up all your (submodel) pages in the page layout of your instructions when changing too much in the original 3D model and that's even apart from bugs in the Stud.io that can do that anyway. ALWAYS make a backup of your work when you are satisfied with it before making changes the next day!
  3. I also do it like this for my GBC machines but with Stud.io. It requires IRL building experience. Never start with making submodels, building steps and instruction until the model is finished IRL and tested. Otherwise it easily could be double the amount of work to create instructions and making instructions is already a LOT of work. For making a modular building I make a 100% digital design in Studio first, get the missing parts, build it and adjust file where needed and also create instructions afterwards. The renders out of the box from Stud.io are realistic enough to judge a digital modular design for me.

    New Technic Gear Ratio Calculator Tool

    Very interesting! Thank you for creating! I will try to use it for my GBC development. Lots of function with the visualized jamming, driving rings etc. What happens with the uploaded .ldr files? Do they stay on your server and are prone to copying?

    [MOC] 854 Go-Kart Tribute

    This probably would have been a good entry for [TC20] but I was too soon.
  6. @Doug72 That remark some time ago was more a possible solution to enhance the ball capacity of your loading station I believe. As it could not process 1 ball per second on average at that time. Meanwhile I've debottlenecked my Rotary Dumper close to perfection with the Akiyuki type lift (no worm gear). I added a gear drive and train guide for better drive gear contact between train and rotary dumper. Still planning on creating a building instruction for the lift dumper. Other than that I'm happy with the train system I have. Recently made a video again with my compact train system and some other modules.
  7. @HRU_Bricks I'm also going to use it in a GBC. I have the whole machine ready and am about to stick on the 3D arm contraption so don't know yet how it will run. I anticipated the vacuum would not work on the grooved balls (and some have a hole) so did not start with a vacuum. The 4th port I am using for a color sensor to create a color sorter. I have the program running, last step is to program the motors in when they are on the machine so I hope to be finished in a few weeks. And of course also thank you @ord , when finished and working I will show the GBC here. I'll be creating free instructions for the GBC.
  8. @HRU_Bricks Thanks for the file! Just stumbled upon this topic. Would have saved me some time if I had seen it sooner as I reverse engineered it also but made a wider version with 16L slider axles :)

    Which studded supercar?

    I also grew up with them and had a few. Nice for nostalgia and I also may be wanted to collect them again when coming out of my dark age. But I found them not appealing enough so I started to build and collect 1:8 RoscoPC historic F1 models, a great mix between studded Technic, classic bricks and new Technic in my opinion. Currently I have 14 build (12 visible below), could also be an option for you if you like F1? Other than that I build an 854 Go-Kart out of nostalgia but also designed and build a redux. May be the 854 is nice small model to start with :) https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-63623/BrickPolis/854-go-kart-tribute/
  10. In the future I want a chemical plant to be part of my BrickPolis as I have a background in chemistry and am working for a chemical company. This 8-wide industrial train is used to supply the plant of needed raw materials. It contains a Vossloh G400B tender in NS livery (Dutch Railroad) for moving the wagons around. The Vossloh model is designed by Dennis Tomsen which I reverse engineered from two pictures and adapted to run with PoweredUp. The Box Car behind contains the PU hub. Behind that a simple Tank Wagon for which I found a building instruction but without mentioning of the creator. The Sphere Wagon is my own design and uses the new 4 x 4 round corner dome top bricks. The part list contains all parts of all 4 elements but separate Bricklink XML and PDF parts list per train element are available in the files section, as well a a sticker sheet. RED parts in the building instructions can be replaced by any color! Separate building instructions and part lists for free on my Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-72829/BrickPolis/industrial-train/

    Lego GBC Extending Forks Module

    Very nice mechanisms all working together in harmony. Well done and thank you for the file and instructions!

    [MOC] Somewhere over the french streets

    Well done! Very good exterior design and interior details.
  13. I accidentally bumped of the head of the black robot at the end of the video shoot and did not notice I had put it back the wrong way around until I was finished editing the video :) Im curious if there is a difference in the amount of dropped balls between mine and the JK version, since you build both please let me know :)
  14. The light bluish grey lever on the arm at the right hits the angled brick and opens up the clamp to release the ball.
