  1. Hi, dunes, Yes, I've seen the error. Should be a simple black pin. Maybe there are more errors. It would be fine if you can update the Ldraw file with motomatt's actuator included: So I can make updated instructions and hope that I finally have all the parts to build the construction to find out the right building steps. Greetings Alex
  2. Hi, JDL1967, The latest instructions I've made was the version without suspensions an the boom modified with Firgelli actuators. Because of the big file size I've zipped the PDF file. You'll find it here for download: And here is also the LDRAW file: The Part list you find in the instructions. Greetings Alex
  3. Hi all, It's glad to see that the grove crane still has some popularity. I'd now some time to create a quick'n dirty instruction from effermans' superstructure. Until now I could not build it to test the functions, because lack of parts. So it's possible that the instructions can have some errors. In the Ldraw file I have included the Lego actuator from motomatt, but could not integrate it in the instructions, it needs some modifications in the superstructure. So feel free to use and modify the instructions I made: grove6400 superstructure.mpd grove6400 superstructure.pdf Greetings Alex
  4. Hi all, I've got the LFX file from a member of the french Technic Forum ( for an extended 42009 boom. But as the step order isn't very clear (I had to dismantle the boom two times to place the right parts), I've recreated the instructions with MLCAD, and here are the results: https://www.dropbox..../Boom 42009.mpd https://www.dropbox..../Boom 42009.pdf Feel free to build and give me information if the instructions contain any errors. Best Greetings Alex
  5. Hi there, I've made made an LPUB version from his instructions, you can still download them from my Bricksafe account. See link here: Greetings Alex
  6. I think so. Instructions would be fine. The only possibility: Disassembling the model part by part and make photo instructions by reversing the steps. Then create a LDAW file. Even that would take some month. That's I see by trying to recreate the LDRAW file from the LFX file from Gabi_BC. BTW: Congatulations, Orinoko! IMHO the best Introduction ever, incredible MOC which deserves a place in the HOF! You are a very talented Technic Builder. Greetings Alex .
  7. @ Gaby_BC & Marini Excellent work! Very impressive and a monstrous version of the BWE! How long would it take for creating and modelling? How much parts? I've tried to convert the LXF file to an LDRAW file - and as always - with a horrible result So I've thought to recreate the file from scratch. Only the step order isn't perfect to rebuild the model. And as I haven't the necessary parts, I'll never be able to build it. Instruction would be interesting - if someone has enough time and patience. But I don't think so, because I believe that an instruction project will take probably 2 years... Even just the creation of the CAD file maybe takes some month..... Greetings Alex
  8. That's true. That's why I like the older technic sets, it's still a real challenge to build them. At the moment I'm building the 8880 - looking forward to the finished model :) But in real the hardest builds were models from other Technic enthusiasts. For ex. Sheos Mining Excavator. Greetings Alex
  9. Hi Gabi, As I know, sheo has made the instructions from a .lxf file. I've an LDRAW .mpd file, see here Greetings Alex
  10. What an impressive MOC! Congratulations for you work, it seems you spent lots of hours to get a perfect result, the video is excellent! Greetings Alex
  11. Impressive! And another MOC on my to-do list. Keep on working on further interesting creations. Greetings Alex
  12. Hi all, Since I've found the ambition to work with MLCAD and making instructions, it's time to publish my own thread for my further instructions projects. As you know, some of them are already realized, and I have the status "LDRAW Builder" on my profile. The instructions are not from own MOC's, they are from others creations. I've (still) not the skills to create my own constructions, but can implant some little modifications. The instructions are based on photo or LDD instructions, which I've created and reviewed with LPUB for the final PDF files. The instructions so far: - Full RC 9397 Logging Truck (Chassis only). My first work, without LSynth, ghosts etc. - Ultimate 8043 (Jurgens' photo instructions organized with LPUB) - Extended Boom 42009 (created from LDD file) - Madocas' Wing Body Truck (from photo instructions) - Rotating Grapple (from 2LegoOrNot2Lego's photo instructions) - Markus53' motorized Unimog 8110 with two gear automatic system (CAD file stepped and organized) - RC 8-Leg Spider from Scott Pomeroy (Little modifications, CAD file organized) Coming soon: - Nico71s' Braiding Machine Next Projects in future: - Gergers' MK6400 crane - CP5670s' Annihilator If instructions are so far perfect, I upload them on bricksafe (see link in signature), keeping this thread up to date. Feel free to build, modify, suggestions are welcome. Greetings Alex
  13. No, I haven't registered it on Rebrickable. I tried already to register one of the Moc's, but I was not succsessful, I made something wrong in the procedure. So, can anybody register it? Greetings Alex
  14. Hi, Long time announced, finally have finished the instructions from the amazing rocket launcher, created by CP5670. Personally, it's one of my favorite MOC's. Generally I took the updated LDRAW file from blakbird as base file, and made minor changes only by using some newer technic parts. IMHO its the best combination of new and old technic parts, and this model shows what is possible if you combine both worlds. You can download the LDRAW File and the Instructions PDF file here: Launcher.mpd Enjoy the building! Greetings Alex
  15. Excellent build! And so realistic Are there any instructions for it? Greetings Alex
  16. Hi dognosh, I've read the thread with the modded technic actuator (which is an excellent solution ), but didn't have the time to build the model with this actuator. In future time I plan to implant the actuator instructions in my own instructions, and even to test it with efferman's boom. I think too you should follow the suggestion from motomatt. An improved version of the actuator instructions you'll find here: Greetings Alex
  17. Another phanhtastic MOC from Madoca1977 . I've created a complete PDF file from the instruction pictures: Greetings Alex
  18. Indeed the cabling is very complicated, myself I spent some hours to do it. But I've seen now that I've not marked the download links in this thread, but in the other topic "afol1969's building instructions thread" For the cabling instructions I used the screenshots from sheo. Further you can look at the pages from blakbird and Therion Good luck! If any questions, just ask. Greetings Alex
  19. Hi all, New instructions! The Palfinger loader crane from Makus53. Full pneumatic functions, in manual or motorized (Micro Motor) Version. Instructions download here: http://www.bricksafe...inger Crane.pdf LDRAW files: http://www.bricksafe...s/kranmotor.mpd http://www.bricksafe...ctions/kran.mpd Greetings Alex
  20. Indeed it will be a very heavy work to make professional instructions. It begins already with the large dimensions >1m which needs a very big page resolution to fit. Even I'm very common in creating instructions, I think I'll need one year to create them, and, honestly, I don't know if I'll have enough patience to do it. But whatever, it's a masterpiece of MOC for the HOF Greetings Alex
  21. Awesome! Reminds me on a star wars shuttle. I do not show that to my son, he surely wants to have instructions, and I have to buy parts again Greetings Alex
  22. I'm so happy that you've done the instructions Already bought them, and 12€ is really a good price for the huge work and time you invested. So there's a new challenge to build this. I really like very complex and very big MOC's. Most time I spend to make instructions, but sometimes I like to relax and simply build a MOC from others instructions. And this one definitively deserves to be build So first lets spend money to buy the missing parts.... Greetings Alex
  23. An ultimate Version like this? Greetings Alex
  24. I don't have the complete part amount for even only one module. And buying at bricklink gets to expensive. But you are right, the models are too cool not to have building instructions for them resp. build them. Surely there are enough freaks who want to build the models. Greetings Alex
