I thought a model of the SBrick would be useful for anyone who would want to use this model for creating instructions, as this part is used by many in the Technic community. One of the reasons I created this is I currently like using digital software to design the internal layout of some of my models to see how larger PF components fit within my desired scale constraints. So I created a model in Autodesk Fusion 360 from measurements of the SBrick, I then went through a couple steps to exporting from the STL file from Fusion 360 to an OBJ for Stud.io's Part Designer with Blender. This tool works well, and I definitely see it being useful for other custom 3D printed parts in the future. I will see about getting other Power functions parts into stud.io in the future, as there is an option to import ldraw parts. I could also see about getting this part published in Stud.io's part library, however since it isn't an offical Lego part, I am not sure how possible that would be, but Bricklink also supports selling of 3rd party parts, so maybe if there was enough of a demand for this it could happen. SBrick part file for Stud.io You will need Part Designer to add the part to your custom parts library in Stud.io Part recreated in CAD A quick render of the SBrick in Stud.io, unfortunately the part designer lacks the functionality to assign different materials to parts. Unless I wanted to use decals, but I originally thought I could UV map a material to it, however that didn't work. also there is some minor mesh artifacts that are visible in the view port, but don't appear to show up in the renders, these are flat surfaces, maybe converting to ngons would fix that issue. Showing the functionality of snapping parts to the SBrick.
Hi there, I've been working on some code to allow of the conversion of textured 3D models into coloured ldr files (with brick optimisation - so it creates the ldr model with 10 different types of brick). I've put my python code and instructions on how to use it on GitHub, you can get all the details from my blog...https://cultofthebrick.blogspot.com/2019...ithub.htmlHope you like it
LEGO’s turn table has considerable friction and rotating a model at an exhibition for a whole day would ruin it. A thrust ball bearing is necessary to decrease the friction. I previously 3D printed a large bearing for my Unikitty. For this year’s exhibition I needed a smaller thrust ball bearing so I designed a new medium sized ball bearing. It includes liftarms to hold a worm wheel which results in a rotation ratio of 1:78. The 3D model is available from my website. I hope it helps you for your MOCs.
