Zephyr261 posted a topic in LEGO TownHello everybody! So, I want to elevate my city, using just LEGO (no table or wood or anything like that). It would allow for an underground Metro System. I need it to support heavy buildings, like Towers consisting of 10K+ parts. Any tips, videos, or pictures on how to accomplish this (it needs to be structurally sound). Thanks!
This topic is in response to a comment in the custom steam rods discussion. I felt it requires a new topic because this is not about custom rods, though you can replace the 1x7 lift arms with Zepher's 7L with 2 holes. Anyway, I agree with the commenter that this little engine would look better with some rods. Because of its size, I'm thinking a Stevenson Valve gear (which is much easier to model). This requires 8 parts and is entirely Purist Approved too! Part list: Part# 15100 - technic pin friction ridges with pin hole - 2x (I used place because that is what I had on hand) Part# 32002 - 3/4 pin - 2x Part# 32065 - 7L lift arm Part# 32073 - 5L axle *optional - 3706 - 6L axle - to replace Stick the 5L axle in the back of the cylinders, the 3/4 pins in the drive wheels. Place the pin part of 15100 in one end of the lift arm. In the middle so that is sound freely. Slide the pin-hole on the 5L axle and the other end of the lift arm on the pin. Done! Works even if motorized. I will post a photo and video of it completed later.
Hi everyone, I searched a lot and was surprised nobody has addressed the issue of extending and retracting the actuators in Lego Digital Designer OR I was unable to find it - be it through searching here, google, youtube or any other means. So I discovered a little trick to do this. If it already exists here in these forums, then I'm really sorry and please accept my apologies. The trick involves exporting the file to *.lxfml and editing the coordinates of sub-components of actuators manually with text editor and is easily doable by anyone without the need for expertise or special tools etc. Below is my video of this:
