  1. Please comment, request and discuss about LDD new parts here Now this topic is intended as a support area for the LDD New Parts thread Ok, let's do this. Inspired by @M2m thread I've started wrting a 3D Studio Max script that allows importing, editing and exporting LDD brick geometry and their XML data. They are rough, some geometry data is unknown (this doesn't have any visible or noticable impact so far) but it works and here's the result (click for bigger pictures): Fixed connectivity issue of 90 deg tube (pretty popular piece for 2018/2019 technic sets): Custom 3x5x2 panel that I saw in one of the Chinese custom (not copied from Lego) models: I was curious how my MOC would look like with more realistic, narrow tires so I shrinked Unimog tire to fit on 42029 rim. Dimensions: 81,6 x 30: For the tractor enthusiasts - how could a Class tire look like on an Arcos rim - also that Chinese model. Dimensions: 64,2 x 20 (I've made is slighty bigger than original tire): Moved some parts around and fixed default orientation of some of technic panels:

    Star Trek - Klingon Bird of Prey

    Hello I guess as my first ever post on this forum, not 100% sure this is the right spot for this kind of post, but I should introduce myself, I am a 34 year old from Australia, who has always had a passion for Lego but could never really afford it when I was a kid. But now having a 3 and 4 year old boy of my own who are completely obsessed with Lego, i have recently rediscovered my love of this simple toy. I have gone from building mostly sets, to creating my own designs. My aim is to make every design I do as something that my boys would love to play with so playability to me is everything. Anyway that's enough of that, I am wanting to show off one of my first designs, I really enjoy a challenge and I definitely had one with this project. I am a Sci-fi nerd and love Star Trek, in particular everything Klingon so I was very disappointed that Lego never got the star trek licence. I am currently working on building this Bird of Prey, at this stage I have only made the cockpit and neck, but have the parts for the wing and disruptor ordered. I am really looking forward to seeing how this Stud.io design that I have spent so many hours on turn into a real product. My main concerns for the build is how strong the wing hinge attachment is as there is quite a lot of weight on them. But I will find out in the next week or so when all my parts arrive and I can trial it. Hope you all find it interesting, I believe it turned out pretty good, with a few play features included, such as the dining hall, opening cockpit, adjustable wings and shooting disruptors. Model Details (according to Stud.io) 4335 pieces 74cm wide, 68cm long. 4.3kg I wanted to add more pics but it seems I can only upload 1 due to the size. See if I can work around this. Also if you are interested, I currently have a Lego Ideas set in the support stage. Its a minifigure scale SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket, again showing my love for all things space related. any support will be greatly appreciated. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/2a60e3c2-c86f-4154-8be3-6fb148943362/statistics I am very interested to hear what you all have to say about my Bird of Prey, any issues you see or possible problems I will have turning this into a real model. Thank you very much for reading this. :) Any ideas on how to post more pictures? I am not that tech savy. Thanks Ok I made a Flickr account to show some of the other photos. I have also ordered custom Klingon minifigures and Batleths to hang in the dining hall. https://www.flickr.com/photos/192336319@N06/
  3. Lego Halloween – Custom Minifigure Welcome, friends! My new Lego Custom Minifigure – Hallow, a Sealed Mystic from my Lego Custom Undead Universe. I would say it better suits for Lego Halloween Theme. Thanks to LEGO for such a beautiful pumpkin. I used it repeatedly in my Lego customs. Lego Halloween is certainly an interesting topic for lovers of tickling their nerves – inhabitants buried under gravestones, bats, ghosts and transparent cubes. And certainly an indispensable attribute of the holiday and traditional decoration is a pumpkin lamp. Let's say «thank you» to LEGO for such a beautiful pumpkin. I used it repeatedly in my Lego custom minifigures. The holiday is firmly associated with supernatural. Rituals, horror stories, legends about ancestors, children wearing role-playing costumes with pumpkin lamps, and certainly clubs and Halloween parties for adults)) Super Holiday! The roots of the holiday go back to the tradition of the ancient Celts of Ireland and Scotland which is interesting in itself. We need to say a separate «thank you» to Halloween for Halloween's attributes that make this Holiday so atmospheric! Have a look at my Lego Halloween Custom Minifigure. I hope you will like it! The Lego Halloween custom minifigure can be twisted from all sides on my small YouTube Channel – Here. I've already customized more than 300 lego minifigures from the Lego Dark Fantesy Direction and the skeletons of the Army of Darkness. If you like my works, feel free to subscribe to follow me! Thank you for your attention!

    [MOC] Omega-7 Fighter

    This MOC is my take on an Incom Corporation vehicle. It is meant to be a vehicle that exists in the star wars universe, a custom fighter craft used by the Rebellion during the galactic civil war, but just never was shown on screen. It mainly uses parts from 75218 (X-Wing) but also uses parts from 75211 (TIE Fighter) and a few pieces from a few other sets. It features Full hyperdrive capabilities, powerful weapons, light shields, and it is speedy as hell, thanks to it's almost oversized engines, but one of it's few disadvantages is that it cannot have an astromech and so can only hold a few hyperdrive coordinates at a time. It can hold one minifigure pilot comfortably, meant to be a generic rebel pilot, and has functional landing gear. The pictures are too large to upload here sadly, but you can check it out here, as well as get free instructions for it. Please note the rendered studio models do not have the stickers that were used in the actual model. I hope everyone enjoys one of my older, earlier mocs, which is still one of my best

    [MOC] LEGO Eldorado Fortress, redesigned

    “Governor Broadside spent years at his post in Eldorado Fortress, waiting for the expected assault of his nemesis, Captain Redbeard. In his days as Commodore, Broadside was one of the famous few to have turned back Redbeard’s feared naval bombardments, but the notorious Redbeard has been missing for years without a trace. Promoted to Governor but growing old at his post, Broadside has ensured that his fortress is well prepared for any assault – the larder is stocked, the men are rested, and the cannons are loaded. But lately, passing ships have whispered strange new rumors of Redbeard. Tales of a remote island, a stranded ship, a Captain and crew thirsty for revenge setting sail once again… The Governor may be unaware of the secret treasure hidden beneath Eldorado, but he is certain Redbeard will come for Mary Brickless, prisoner of Eldorado for the past five years. Is Eldorado Fortress prepared for whatever threats may come next? Can Broadside return to his role as Commodore and rid the seas of Redbeard, once and for all? Only you can decide!” Eldorado Fortress Introducing Eldorado Fortress, built from 100% authentic LEGO® bricks and the perfect companion to LEGO’s® new Pirates of Barracuda Bay set! Although LEGO® has released some smaller imperial fortresses in the past, none were truly on the scale of LEGO’s® larger castle playsets. The new Pirates of Barracuda Bay set re-inspired us to create a fortress modelled on Caribbean architecture. As you can see, the fortress is named to play on LEGO’s® original Eldorado Fortress (set #6276). The Governor is named after the “Governor Broadside” that shows up in some older LEGO® literature/manuals. The main model uses 2,581 bricks, and the minifigures and accessories add ~150 parts to that. The model features a watchtower, armory, prison, a secret cave with the hidden treasure of Eldorado, a larder, crew’s quarters, Governor’s room, and a harbor area with defensive cannon emplacements. Our personal favorite feature is the curved wall with three cannons overlooking the water! Everything is modular, allowing easy access to all play features. The prison features an ‘exploding’ wall, the cave is connected via a secret passage with retractable wall to the larder, and a trapdoor connects the larder to the crew’s quarters. More importantly, the set includes five spring-loaded cannons that can be positioned anywhere along the fort walls, allowing for quick defense against raiding pirates!

  6. To me, the “purist” line is drawn at using fake/custom/3D printed moulds and permanent modification. For many of my custom figures, I make pauldrons and kamas out of paper, and sometimes even torso wrap-around things. I also make “paper decals” (idk) where I would usually just create markings and the like which I use blu-tack to stick onto the figure. As LEGO fans, would you approve of this and/or consider it “purist”?
  7. Hi, After end of TC19 I started scratch building more motorcycle parts. Originally just to modify my TC19 entry, that got very early very wild, when I found out that I can 3D print parts that visually satisfy my visions of that MOC (should I call it still that way?). How it's transfornation into hybrid monster, Darth Vader of MPCs, goes on could be seen in it's separate topic here on. But I desperately wanted to build proper caferacer, that I could later usr as a template for my first motorcycle instructions. It had to be visually attractive, pure LEGO (or at least from 95% - I love that 3dprinted dark silver disc brake), and light and clean build. So, here it is. All photos : https://bricksafe.com/pages/horcikdesigns/hd.two-caferacer-motorcycle Its engine is inspired by Honda CX500. Under it is leg-operated 2 speed transmission. Hope you like it. 😉 And here a little comparison between The Purist and The Heretic. I plan to make instructions for the caferacer.
  8. A Korean Lego mania made a 42115 cyan hood. I bought it, and I was so satisfied. So I want to introduce it to you. *This custom hood is currently available only in south Korea. However, it seems that the maker is willing to sell it to other countries as well as well. If you want to purchase it, send an email to the producer. hogeun555@gmail.com The product composition consists of 3 pieces. All of them are injection molds, not 3D printing. Lamborghini emblem is printed. back has pins to connect the connectors. Start assembling. Assembly is very easy. That is the part that needs to be separated. Some of these parts are used to assemble connectors. It is a connector that connects the hood and the main body. It says to use spare parts to make it lime, but I made it black. First, assemble the connector on the hood. Connect to the remaining part of the hood of the main body. Insert a small part into the location where the soft axle was connected. Mounting is complete. The explanation was very easy, and familiar people could fit it more easily and quickly than explanation. It takes less than 10 minutes. Changing the hood alone changes the impression significantly. The color fits perfectly. I thought it was a foul at first, but it looked so nice looking at other people's applied photos. Sometimes Lego uses large chunks of dedicated parts. I decided to think of it that way. The manufacturer initially designed it as a 3D printer and then spent a fortune to make the mold. It is said that he worked very hard to match the color. It is assembled smoothly and has considerable clutch power. It's like a Lego genuine part. It is said that the person who created it was not a company but an individual, and it was the first time to do such work. I applied the hood and it was very satisfying. I hope this wonderful product will be known to many people.
  9. It's been a long time, maybe even too long, since I posted a finished MOC. But here I am, posting again this now good old BMW i8 of mine. It has already seen some exhibitions and received some appreciation. So, let's hope that it will receive some more in this audience ? Enjoy! Full gallery here at flickr.
  10. Hi everyone, I'm pretty new around here so I'm not sure if I'm supposed to post this here, but wanted to share with you my most recent IDEAS project! Created by the legendary Wilbert Awdry in 1946, Thomas is and has been beloved by children around the world and has become an icon for both kids and adults alike. To celebrate Thomas's 75th Anniversary, I created this project to pay tribute to this beloved little Tank Engine and the man who created it. Like Thomas himself, this build is highly based on the (LB&SCR) E2 Tank Engine with additional details based on his appearance in both the Railway series and the classic TV series. Thomas includes a detailed interior that can easily be accessed by detaching the roof. The cabin features space for 1 Minifigure and a highly detailed furnace. Though too small for any motorized features, Thomas's chassis features a built-in gear mechanism to allow the wheels to rotate smoothly. Currently, we are very close to hitting 5.000 supporters so if you want to see this become an actual set, then consider supporting this project through the link down below: https://bit.ly/2Ruzxzp

    Custom Stickers

    Hi guys, For some time I've been working on these sticker sheets to use in various Lego Star Wars builds. It is primarily made for the Factions RPG here on Eurobricks, but I thought I'd share them with everyone. The sheets are in A4 format, and it is very important to print the PDF sheets at 100% size, since they are exact same size as official Lego stickers... Download Misc. Sticker Sheet 1 here Download Aurebesh Sticker Sheet 1 here Download Imperial Sticker Sheet here Preview below: Let me know what you think - comments, critique, and requests for future sheets... /DB
  12. Nov. 2015 Initial Post: Hello Eurobrickers! I have a great announcement for you guys, especially those who are interested in Cavegod's UCS AT-AT. Over the past month or so, I have worked a countless number of hours in order to bring all of you guys something that this MOC deserved ever since its creation, a proper instruction manual. Yes, that's right, the famed issues of LDD will no longer be apart of this project thanks to this manual. Now I'm sure you're wondering, how big is a 6000+ piece manual? Well, to answer that question, the manual is a massive 1,089 pages. No that is not a typo, ONE THOUSAND AND EIGHTY NINE PAGES!!! A special thanks goes out to both Cavegod and drdavewatford. Cavegod designed a masterful MOC, one of the greatest ever, and drdavewatford was kind enough to allow me use of some of his photos throughout the manual. This could not be achieved without you guys! Enough of me talking, here are some images directly from the manual: (Initial images removed for clarity on update) Oct. 2020 Instructions Update: Almost five years after its initial release, I'm thrilled to announce that the remastered instructions for Cavegod's AT-AT are complete! The instructions feature updates that make this build SO much easier and affordable. The most important things that are included in the updated instructions are: Redesigned Legs. These new legs have a technic interior and erase any issues that occurred with the original leg stability Reinforced Body Frame. The handle is now incredibly sturdy and the technic structure that is housed within the body is significantly more sturdy Cheaper Pieces. After several years it was time to swap out the expensive parts. The parts and MOC are now much more affordable. Display Base. What MOC would be complete without a display base? I designed a large black display base that includes technic framing to snap in the feet, a much better alternative to the old method of tires within the feet. The base also features several snow-covered rocks to imitate a Hoth landscape The MOC now consists of 8,935 pieces and measures: 34" long 18" wide 30" tall The instructions are now reduced down to 550 pages. More information about getting the instructions and free access to the parts list can be found here Pete and I are super pumped to be sharing the update with you, and I cannot understate how much better they've made the build experience and final MOC. If you already own the instructions after getting them from me in the past, you should have received an email detailing how to obtain the updated instructions. If I missed you just shoot me a PM or contact me via email at alloutbrick@gmail.com and I'll get your upgrade over to you. Here's some photos of the update:
  13. Around a year ago I designed a set of minifigures of the main characters from The Witcher 3, which I made using waterslide decals. I haven't been totally satisfied with either my design, or the decals though, so this past week I decided to redesign the figures. Because the decals I've made in the past always end up looking a bit off even when they print well, I'm designing these new figures with printing in mind. I'm thinking I may to a small production run of them to sell, but as I don't have a UV flatbed printer, I'll need another company to do the printing. I've reached out to printing operations in my area with UV flatbed printers, but none who have responded are willing to help me yet. Do any of you know of printing companies you would recommend? I'm located in northeast United States, but they don't have to be local. Anyway, I've only redesigned one of the figures so far, which is Triss. I redesigned her first since she's the one which I anticipated would require the most re working. All three side character figures (Yennefer, Ciri, and Triss) will be wearing the DLC outfits. I just think the DLC outfits look better. Geralt will also be wearing the Grandmaster Wolf School Armor rather than the beginner armor, for the same reason. Here are the images of my Triss figure, Any comments or critiques? I'm thinking I may change the proportions of the face a bit (move the mouth a bit down and make it larger) but I'm not sure.

  14. I wanted to redesign Onua Mistika life based on a concept drawing made by the owner of the brickshelf account MuffinToa and his Project Nuva. MuffinToa thanks for the inspiration if you see this. DISCLAIMER: I have no intention to claim all the glory for this design idea. and i'm not trying to commit plagiarism of any kind. I used Lego program called Studio 2.0. The options including masks are severely limited but i did my best.

  15. Are you prepared for a battle to come??? Friends, let me introduce you my new Lego Custom Minifigure – a Two Headed Ogre, let us call him Cho'gall. We can meet two-headed characters in many fantasy worlds but it is WARCRAFT that is the first that comes to mind when we talk about Two-Headed Ogre. One of the most famous and powerful of the Horde's Ogre Magi is a Two Headed Ogre Cho'gall. Driven by the lust of power and thrill of destruction, Cho'gall is a terrifying force on the battlefield, someone who can start and end a fight all on his own ... but only if both heads work together. Born in the capital of Gorian Empire a Two-Headed Ogre Cho'gall was tuted by the most talented ogre sorcerers. Feeling a threat, aristocracy tried to kill him but he was able to escape and had to flee from the city. As Cho'gall searched the world for knowledge and weapons he came across Guldan, orc warlock. Two Headed Orge Cho'gall became one of the most powerful and respected members of the Old Horde during the First and Second Wars against the humans. This is a great story which made me add Two Headed Ogre into my Lego Custom Undead Universe. Two Headed Ogre custom minifigure can be twisted from all sides on my small YouTube Channel – Here. Latest Lego Minifigures I customized – Soul Taker and Baba Yaga.
  16. This model is the next generation of my Nissan-skyline-r34.

  17. Hello :D I have made a few decal design I'd like to print or get printed, but I am not sure about what is the best way to do it. Is it better to do it at home? Or is there services I can use? (I live in the UK, in case you have specific services to recommend) Most services online assume you want to print a large number of the same sticker, but it's not my case. I've seen also many people use the "laser printer" technique to print their own stickers at home. Do they turn out durable? Do they have good quality, is the dithering noticeable? In the past I had stickers printed on a PVC sticker sheet, but they were too think and didn't stick enough, so over a few hours they'd just come off round surfaces like minifigure heads. Also, they were very easily scratched, which is not great... If you don't mind sharing photos of your own custom decals, it'd be greatly appreciated! Thanks :)
  18. Hey guys! I have made some custom parts for Stud.io which I wanted to share with you! First of all I added the connectivity to the files of the Big Ben Bricks drivers. In addition I used them as a basis to make part files for the #13 (XXL) drivers as well as thin train wheels in sizes #6, #7 and #9 (MS, M and L using the old naming convention). custom drivers for Studio by ScotNick1, on Flickr Also I created parts for the windows which are in develoment by Fx Bricks: Fx Bricks train windows for Studio by ScotNick1, on Flickr Here are the links for downloading the files: Train Wheels Train Windows Best is to download the whole folder as a package. I also included a text file with instructions how to add the parts to your custom parts library. Keep in mind that some of the dimensions might not be 100% correct, but they are pretty close and have always worked out for me so far While I didn't have any problems rendering the wheels I did run into problems rendering the glass panes of the Fx Bricks windows in trans-clear. Let me know if you run into any problems or struggle with adding the parts! Hope this will be helpful to you! Cheers, Nick
  19. For a while now I've been working on creating replacement axel holders for lego train wheels. It all started when I got back into the hobby and ran out of train wheels. Looking around my local area (Australia, Queensland) the 1 or 2 clubs that used to be around disappeared so there wasn't anyone I could trade or buy them off. I then remembered brick link but I couldn't get the cost down to below $5-8 pre-unit shipped. When you want 100 or 50 or 24 of the $8-5 a peace starts getting really expensive. I then tried to order them from lego but they weren't shipping bricks and peace due to the outbreak. Shortly after trying to order directly from lego, they also discontinued the part I wanted. So a few months of design later, I now have a number of wheel axle configurations. I printed the last prototypes this week and I was a little surprised that they felt smoother than the official ones. Although having said that my existing lego wheels are all 9V or RC so they are really old. I have a version with no sides, a version that is designed to imitate the existing one from lego and one that has studs on the side that is primarily for snot builds (8/9/10 wide). I'm now moving into a phase where I'd be sending them out to an ABS plastic print farm because they take between an hour and 1hr+45min to print. Initially, I wasn't going to sell them but I was wondering if there might be a demand? If there was a demand what colours other than back people might be interested in? Other Questions Welcome.
  20. Lego Baba Yaga – Custom Minifigure Friends, I was a little distracted from the Lego Dark Fantesy Direction and the skeletons of the Army of Darkness which I am currently customizing. I spent the time with pleasure to custom a Lego Baba Yaga Minifigure. This is a «hello» from the slavic mythology and folklor. In particular Baba Yaga is a very famous character of fairy tales of Russia and countries of the former Soviet Union. Unfortunately a lot of people look at this character only as to a fairy tale character. But Baba Yaga takes roots from very very deep history. Baba Yaga is mentioned in books hundreds of years ago. By fact Baba Yaga is mentioned as a ritual character in Austria and Montenegro, as well as a night spirit in Serbia, Croatia and Bulgaria I decided to custom the minifigure of Lego Baba Yaga after I saw the work of Lego Baba Yaga on the Lego Ideas Official Website. I decided to make my character not so joyful, but more realistic in terms of fantasy theme. Despite the fact that Baba Yaga is shown as negative character in many works, the study of history suggests that Baba Yaga helps a lot. The Baba Yaga custom minifigure can be twisted from all sides on my small YouTube Channel – Part 1 and Part 2. Parameters of the character are available from Trailer.
  21. My new custom lego minifigure – Soul Taker. Soul Eater is found in cult games and pearls of modern fantasy worlds such as Diablo, Skyrim, Dragon Age, Warcraft, Lineage and many others. Lasting the uncountable millennia, calming down, again inflaming in the new worlds, eternal war of forces of Light and Darkness, Angels and Demons, the Order and Chaos leads to emergence of the opponents much surpassing ordinary soldiers on both parties. Certainly, one of such generations of forces of Darkness is Soul Taker. Ordinary people are not lucky to live in the middle of this war in a hearth of never-ending battle. In attempts to survive or for the sake of finding of power some of them sign the contract with Darkness forces and come over to the side of the Evil, having started practicing dark magic. In a fantasy Universe of Lego Custom Undead Soul Taker comes to the world of living by killing his reviver – the Dark Wizard. Having taken control of the book of Soul Eater and also several artifacts which the Dark Wizard collected during the wanderings and search, Soul Eater begins the way in the world of the living with one purpose – to make this world the dead. Clever, cunning and artful, Soul Eater mastered a way allowing to release the opponent's soul and then to absorb her. It is difficult to stop Soul Eater who aimed at the enemy. Having chosen the victim, he promptly starts the feast. With his spells he practically immobilizes the victim, causes it severe physical and intolerable emotional pain. And then, when the victim is weakened, he takes away her soul, fills up the magic force and comes back to catacombs to continue his magic rituals. The Soul Taker custom minifigure can be twisted from all sides on my small YouTube Channel.
  22. A little while ago I became interested in some slightly unusual gear ratios (for a few reasons covered below). More recently though, I gained access to a laser cutter, and hence the ability to make custom lego gears. With this in mind, I decided to work out all the possible custom gear combinations that will fit on a standard technic beam (ie all the combinations where the centre-to-centre axle distance is a whole number of studs). I found the website https://www.cailliau.org/en/Alphabetical/L/Lego/Gears/Dimensions/ handy for figuring out the meshing. I'm not sure if this is of interest to anyone else, but here is what I found: One custom gear with one standard gear (Standard gear, Custom gear, Ratio) 12 52 3/13 16 32 1/2 16 48 1/3 20 44 5/11 20 60 1/3 28 52 7/13 36 44 9/11 36 60 3/5 Two custom gears where both have a prime number of teeth (Custom gear, Custom gear, Ratio) 11 53 11/53 11 37 11/37 17 47 17/47 17 31 17/31 23 41 23/41 37 59 37/59 19 29 19/29 13 19 13/19 43 53 43/53 37 43 37/43 53 59 53/59 There are also plenty of 'loose running' combinations where the centre-to-centre distance between axles is only 0.5 mm off an integral number of studs. I tried one of these, and it seemed to work fine. Loose-running combos (standard gears in bold) (Gear 1, Gear 2, Ratio) 8 23 8/23 8 39 8/39 8 55 8/55 11 20 11/20 11 36 11/36 12 19 12/19 12 35 12/35 12 51 4/17 15 16 15/16 16 31 16/31 16 47 16/47 19 28 19/28 20 27 20/27 20 43 20/43 20 59 20/59 23 24 23/24 23 40 23/40 23 56 23/56 24 39 8/13 24 55 24/55 27 36 3/4 28 35 4/5 28 51 28/51 36 43 36/43 36 59 36/59 39 40 39/40 39 56 39/56 40 55 8/11 55 56 55/56 SO the big question is, why would I be interested in such things? The first is that a while back I built a 'phase revival' machine (video below). In this situation I wanted a ratio close to, but not exactly 1:1. In the video I used 20:24, which means that the first cog has to rotate 7776 times before all the parts line up again. If I used a custom ratio of 39:40, and had 11 modules instead of 5, it would take 10 billion years (rotating the left-most gear at 1 revolution/second) before all the pieces realigned! I'm not quite sure why, but the idea of a machine that takes the entire lifetime of our sun to reset is appealing! And now for the prime numbers... I've been interested in making lego spirographs recently, and the key to interesting patterns is the lowest common multiple of the two gears. If you have a gear with a prime number of teeth, you are pretty much guaranteed of getting lots of 'knots' in the design. In the second video below, I used a 43 tooth gear meshed with a 36 tooth gear. To actually make the gear profile, I used https://www.festi.info/boxes.py/Gears?language=en with a modulus setting of Pi (3.14) to make lego compatible gears. You also need to tweak the burn correction depending on the cutter and material. I also set 'profile_shift' to zero. I suspect that a little more fine-tuning would be required to get the best result, but this is a good starting point. I hope that someone else finds this interesting! Ahhhrrgh. I can't delete the table below! Please ignore....

    Custom marble bricks

    Hello I recently found out about marbled bricks and would like to have a few for my MOC's. For those who do not know what they are, here is a picture: https://us.v-cdn.net/5015319/uploads/editor/pa/uf4ul1x7s84n.jpg https://forum.brickset.com/discussion/16396/marbled-lego-bricks-and-other-parts/p3 The only problem is: they are really rare, most patterns do not interest me, and they are really expensive. So I was wondering, is there an easy way to make your own marbled 2x4 bricks? They do not have to be sturdy and do not need to have good clutch power. They will only be used in my own MOC's. They do not even have to be made from the same plastic. I thought about 3D-printing, but that way you can only use one colour at the same time, so that does not seem to be an option. I cannot find any sources of people making their own bricks, so I hope it is possible :P
  24. Alright, so this is my second post on Eurobricks, and my 3rd alternate of the 10220. Here I have a custom Porsche rallycar with some additional features. The "costum" stuff is a huge spoiler and rear seats. If you didn't know, most Porsches don't have rear seats. Functions Opening hood with trunk space Opening doors with nice interior With doors opened, the seats fold down to access the rear seat Opening trunk with flat 6 engine Soon to be on Rebrickable for $2.50 for instruction, search "a1i2d3e4n5" and find this model. Enjoy!
  25. Hello one and all, For those that have more experience with pneumatic systems, I was wondering if a self-sustainable, closed-loop system is feasible with LEGO pneumatics? I have been toying with the following idea in my mind: Air tanks lend air to an engine and to a power generator, leftover air from the engine going to a turbine, and from that to two compressors. Power from the pneumatic power generator goes to the lego-built compressors which resupply air to the air tanks. Would such a system work? Or am I looking at a pipe dream (pun intended)?
