  1. Thanks Roland. Both of those options (I'd been using the drag and drop one for a while and I'm happy to learn how to add templates) solve the convenience problem, but I'm also trying to get the part to show as only one part in the part count of the LDR. Do you have any suggestions for that use case? Thanks as usual for your responsiveness!
  2. Just the info I was looking for. Thanks for sharing.
  3. Inspired by @touthomme's increased tilt modification, I created a multi-level maze that uses various ridged and rigid hoses for ramps. I'd love to see a little revival of the custom mazes taking advantage of the extra tilt. Full video | Inventory and instructions | Maze base mod with extra tilt

    Hello from Geneva

    I've been lurking around Eurobricks for a few months, getting a bit of advice here and there from this great resource. I live in France, just across the border from Geneva. A bit over a year ago, when my kid was two, I started gathering a some used bricks from colleagues whose kids were outgrowing them. Then I started trying to organize them, just a little, to see what I had. And then I discovered Rebrickable and LDraw and Studio and LDCad and LPub . . . And so, a year later, I have a wall of little labeled drawers of well-sorted Lego, an inventory on Rebrickable, and a dozen MOCs posted there, some of which I designed for my kid, some of which are really just for me. I seem to most enjoy functional Lego, like the key organizer I built, or the Lego Idea maze set for which I have built a couple of mazes. GBC seems to be a whole other world whose siren call I can hear . . . And as the little one gets older, I think the light at the end of the tunnel is most definitely an oncoming Lego train.

    Hello from Geneva

    Thanks! I've had the little wind-up version since 1977 when I was little kid. I was so enamored with the LEGO version that I ordered chromed bricks to match it as closely as possible to its ancestor. Then came the tracked version, because my kid loves anything with tracks. Soon it will be an army . . .

    Review: modular marble run

    For some reason, the site won't let me sent private messages, but I did manage to track down Polegon's email and he does still have some printed instructions for sale (5 euro). They really are an excellent piece of work, with a lot of thought put into how to map out different configurations of the modules. Thanks @Holodoc and @Hamster for trying to help!

    Review: modular marble run

    Does anyone know if the instructions are available somewhere for purchase or otherwise? Polegon's BrickLink store closed in 2011.
