  1. Alright, I found one solution, which is to use the 18948 gear shifter instead.
  2. Hello, I am trying to build a gearbox in LDD using the 18947 gear shifter ring and 26287 cross axle extension 3m. I am too stupid to be able to align the ring on top of the extension. LDD does not automatically snap and I don't know what kind of support structure I could build to align the shifter ring otherwise. The 32187 middle ring is much easier to align since it fits onto a normal axle. I am probably doing something stupidly wrong. Do you have a solution for this problem other than using another software? Thank you in advance, /c
  3. Episode 11 is now available as a free download at http://www.minifigure.org/2018/09/the-ideal-order-episode-11/ I hope you enjoy this LEGO radio drama.

    Comparison of LEGO rendering engines

    Mecabricks does not have the the L-Motor in its library and my model could not be rendered with it.

    Climbing 20 degrees hill

    Here is a video explaining the modifications: And a second video showing the train in action in regular camera view:

    Climbing 20 degrees hill

    Yes, the train has to go to full speed to gather enough speed to go up the hill. It is a sensitive balance between weight and power of the train. If it is too light then the wheels will start slipping. If it is too heavy then the train will just come to a stop with the wheels stalled. It requires power and weight to get the train up.

    Climbing 20 degrees hill

    Several modifications were necessary, such as using three engines and raising the bogies. Normally these trains can barely go up five degrees slopes.

    Climbing 20 degrees hill

    I designed this little engine that could climb a 20 degree hill and filmed the whole ride in glorious 360 degree video. You can spin the camera and have a look for the Unikitty.
