  1. Outriggers Thread

    Sorry for the long response time, but I've been quite busy this past week. Here is an example of what I mean
  2. Disassemble Z28 Turntable?

    build a contraption that grabs the turntable and then you just pull a lever to take them apart
  3. PoC compact sequential shifter

    You have the .lxf file, just load it up in LDD and have a look yourself
  4. Outriggers Thread

    It's only 1L in width so you could easily make it more compact in a 3x3 grid instead of 5x5 as you've done now
  5. LEGO Technic Turbo Polyp / Kraken

    Wow that is so cool, I didn't think it would be that easy to replicate that kind of motion in LEGO. I was proven wrong
  6. The use of black pieces

    Interesting. I can understand that people that haven't got as many LEGO sets when they were kids are lacking in black parts where as I am overflowing in them. I pretty much never use LBG or DBG parts unless the model is specifically in that color (Like my motion simulator) or the part simply doesn't exist in black. I also agree that black can be hard to photograph, and also that it hides the "holes" in a MOC quite well. It's truly a balance thing, that takes a lot of trial and error to learn.
  7. I have been wondering about this for a while. TLG seems to be going away from using black parts in their sets and using dark/light bluish gray instead or even red pieces in their chassis of models. I can understand this from a childs point of view as to ease the building process. However, I also see a lot of MOC's with barely any black parts in them and to some extent I understand why (highlighting details that would be hard to photograph) but when I see the bottom of a car or whatever made with no black pieces I just wonder why. To me, black pieces represent the real thing better as other colors (example, the chassis of the new 42070 6x6 All Terrain Tow Truck set is pretty much all red) which I feel gives off a better look. I honesly don't care for the looks of that particular set. But maybe I'm just having trouble finding a balance between black and dark bluish gray pieces. When to use what and why. What are your thoughts on this?
  8. Aesthetics and Technics

    I agree. I find my self looking at models that are really nice and cool looking - rarely cars though - that I don't care about the internals anymore. When I am building however, I'm the complete opposite. I have never created a MOC where the bodywork was lifelike, but all the functionality has always been present. I don't know where to go with this, but I like functionality as much as the next guy, and first impressions are very important too.
  9. LEGO Technic Turbo Polyp / Kraken

    Looks promising. I'll keep an eye on this
  10. HUGE technic figure ROLLERCOASTER

    I wouldn't call this a roller coaster per se, but it's FRIGGIN AWESOME anyway. I like it
  11. General Part Discussion

    Doesn't have to be half width, but can max be 1 width. Also, it's gonna be a main support, which is why I wanted it to be 1 piece. I was just wondering if there was a piece like that, it doesn't have to be exactly that but still somewhat.
  12. General Part Discussion

    Hello guys, I was wondering if anyone would know of a technic piece similar to a Z shape. My paint skills aren't really amazing, but I hope you get the idea.
  13. Conveyor belt

    Looks like it would work if you just made the tube wider to cover the entire thing, also in real life, there's a lot of weight on the conveyor to keep it down.
  14. Clutch Gears

    Sorry for bumping, but does this mean that if I put a clutch gear on my buggy motor at 1000rpm at a 1:1 ratio (meaning directly) it wouldn't work as intended? To clarify, does the clutch gear need to be going at a slow speed in order to function correctly?
  15. I will be saving this topic for when I want to play around with my Cybermaster sets again. Thanks a lot bro!
