    How to make the bottom of plates/bricks look nice ??

    Yes it has be oriented in this configuration, it's absolutely critical. The relation of holes in bricks and plate heights are different, and this works better. It is not possible to rebuild it with snot techniques, as it has to be very strong. The tiles would have been a good option if the 1x3 came in black, alas it does not.

    How to make the bottom of plates/bricks look nice ??

    Thank you, I think I will go with the dusting option, as it seems there's no clear way to combine plates bottom to bottom
  3. Hi, my build has got the bricks turned upside down, and I was wondering if there's a way to make it look nice, as in tiled, with as few layers as possible. I'm a technic geek, not a system builder, so any help is welcome

    [Help] Expanding circle (or cylinder)

    No, but that's also a good idea for a moc ??? I'm not quite sure what you mean

    [Help] Expanding circle (or cylinder)

    I'm not quite sure what you mean with the first part, but I get the umbrella idea Interesting, with a little modification this could work somewhat Not quite, actually you're miles off the mark, but hey, sounds like you found yourself a good project 😀
  6. It's definitely a prototype looking model, but it works flawlessly. The fact that the air cylinders lags behind a bit is just a restriction of using Lego in the first place. I'm sure someone else will try and recreate something similar. I'd say, mission accomplished 👍

    [Help] Expanding circle (or cylinder)

    The motion can be as slow as a tree growing up (ok, maybe not that slow), and it doesn't have to retain a perfect circle. The smallest diameter will be approx. 13 studs and then grow to about 16 or something. It's all just a variable really -
  8. Hi, I was wondering if anyone has got any ideas for how to recreate the mechanics of this video. If not, then what other ideas do you have? I need a fair bit of travel, and there would be room to put a motor inside of it

    Making converter Cables

    I'm no expert, but I would imagine that 9v is supplied to the rotary sensor, and there's a resistor inside, that is shunted by every 8 rotations (as it's old tech). This causes the 9v to drop. If I had one, I would test it for you, but try putting it on a converter cable and plug it into the sensor port of the NXT. Put a push button block in the program, and count the number of pushes for 1 rotation.
  10. Cool stuff bro, Keep it up!
  11. No it's not possible to animate anything, you can only construct in their software. Its easier and looks so much better than mlcad and ldd which is quite outdated though. Besides, SR3D Builder had quite a few bugs that never got fixed. I tried using it long after support ended, but it was just a pain
  12. I suggest moving over the Bricklinks application. It still needs work, but it's coming along very nicely

    LEGO Technic Turbo Polyp / Kraken

    That looks sick
  14. Looks great, make sure to put small pneumatic cylinders - one at the basket and one at the main joint - to level out the basket when moving the upper arm. You can easily do this with a valve as an inlet to pressurize the system

    [WIP] Articulated Tracked Dumper

    Looks cool, but I can help but wonder if the front module of the truck won't be too long by a significant margin?
