  1. Hello, dear friends. I've been a fan of the Technic series for a long time. For all the time I can remember only a couple of sets that go beyond construction equipment and cars, one of which 4958 - Monster Dino, from which my acquaintance with the company's products began in ancient times. With my idea, I want to new wave a series of Technic and show that these are not just machines. The proposed model is driven by two pull-back motors. While driving, the bug slowly accelerates and runs a distance of about two meters. Starts with a traditional rollback. After start, the beetle does not just go forward, but moves its legs and moves its head. Vote and join if you also think it's time to add something new to the series of Technic. Support this MOC in Lego Ideas if you like and share my philosophy.

    The Compound Marksman

    Made for the MP Monthly contest for December. Wasn't allowed to post in November being a judge, so I combined the themes (medieval and bug). I hope you all like it!
  3. In the MINDSTORMS app on the word-block side, sin() and cos() appear to work as expected, with the argument in degrees. But tan() does not give the right answer with the argument in degrees or in radians. For example, I'm getting tan(30) = -2.1e-7 and tan(30*3.14157/180) = -0.075, when I expect tan(30 degrees) = 0.58. If I switch over to text based input, math.tan() works as expected, with radians as input. Is anybody else confused by this in the word blocks or maybe already figured out what I'm overlooking?
  4. Hi, playing with the all-new Classroom programming app I found some funny behavior. I have described it in detail here: In short: Passing some processed value from a sensor directly to a command that writes the value to display - works. Passing the same processed value to a motor block as speed value - doesn't, fails silently. Saving the processed value to a variable first, which then in turn gets passed to the motor block as speed - works, so that's not an issue of bad value in itself. Anyone with similar observations? best regards, M.
  5. Recently upgraded to Windows 10 and re-installed LDD. After resolving an unrelated error having to do with my graphics card, I succeeded in booting up the program and opened one of my old build files to discover that an incredibly large number of bricks (mostly ones with moving parts) were refusing to load. Additionally, three of the brick categories in the sidebar were displaying with a bugged icon and a handful more, including hats, heads, and handheld props, were missing entirely. Finally, numerous bricks from these and other categories has been randomly redistributed to incorrect categories, as seen in the minifig parts catagory here. I haven't yet determined whether all of the parts from the missing categories are still present. What's going on, and how do I fix it? I've already tried all the solutions in this thread, in the belief that it was about the same issue I'm experiencing, but in retrospect it's very likely that it isn't.
  6. Hi, yesterday I reinstalled windows (Windows 10 like before) and all the apps, LDD included, version 4.3.11, brick version 2670 ( I dont want the last version of the official LEGO page because is a broken piece of shit with the half of the pieces, thanks TLG). Well, the issue with the Adobe in the installation was solved but today I have opened a file and try to change a colour and... there is only red in the palette LOL. Kinda weird because I used this version until two days ago...even in my laptop I have it as well and I see the complete palette. Can someone helps me please?? I work with LDD and makes me angry ( I need the double of time to make the same build, the mechanics are VERY CLUNKY) Screenshot->
  7. The latest incarnation of my VW Beetle MOC, in minifigure scale. Incorporating new backend shaping to assist with the difficult matter of the curves. Enjoy

    [MOC] Rally Bug

    Baby Porsche or VW Beetle tuning? This is a fictitious race car, I hope you like it :) You can support it on Lego Ideas: It is a studless build in Speed Champions scale, but with City wheels. I used only standard LEGO elements, the slopes with stickers are part of the set called 1968 Ford Mustang.

    [MOC] Space bug/beetle

    The future version of the vw beetle, "The Space Bug", travel for the future
  13. Hello everyone! Today I come bearing a MOC of mine built for an insect contest. It's a golden tortoise beetle (charidotella sexpunctata) made up of just two pieces, sitting on top of a strewn pile of fresh leaves. Here we go! Here's the reference picture. Even the scale is close to the original! Thanks for your attention!
  14. I use Open Beta v1.0 (21) with LEGO Digital Designer 4.3.10. This digital model is under Creative Commons license. Did use out-of-date ldraw.xml or I should wait to next release ?!! FIRST IMAGE Import into as LDD model. SECOND IMAGE Import into model after export from LDD using updated ldraw.xml as LDraw model.
  15. I've been waiting to make a Galaxy Squad moc, I manages to open a box of old pieces and put together this guy, I made him a backstory too. After a deadly battle one abductoid is injured and left by his comrades, however using resources from a wrecked galaxy squad fighter he creates new limbs, painstakingly creating them with only his mouth as a tool, now he seeks revenge on the squad member who shot him down, Solomon Blaze, outcasted from the other bugs he hunts alone...
  16. A racing car-like model created for a stop motion that never was. The idea was born out of creating a vehicle with uneven wheel base widths (because of limited parts) and the colors are lime green because those were the parts on hand. The Power Miners stickers actually work towards the model's design in my opinion. The model was reproduced in MLCAD (without stickers) and will be submitted to Rebrickable as well. The windscreen is on a double hinge which allows it to open up despite limited space. The rear compartment is also hinged to allow access to the engine. The car has both front lights and rear lights (on the MLCAD version). Unfortunately, no rear bumper is a weakness of this design. EDIT: I'm also putting a dark blue version of this racecar on rebrickable with pieces that are marginally less rare and (hopefully) less expensive to procure. It looks like a Batman car (whoops :{ )

    Insect Terrarium

    This was an entry to the 2016 MOCAthalon. I took inspiration from Sean and Steph Mayo’s terrarium and insect collection builds. The terrarium contains a beetle, two ants, a millipede, a butterfly, a ladybug, and a stick bug. There are lots more pictures available on brickbuilt. Thanks for looking
  18. Playing in LDD I managed to use a bugged color to create a file which in the shown example changes the colors randomly. The colors are taken from hundreds of PF receiver outputs. Here are just a few examples of the hundreds possible colors that can be generated Before you use the file mare sure your shader match as following: After opening the file with correct settings just move over the car and it will change color to a random one.

    [M-E01] New Discoveries

    Location: E01 - Donwarr Log of Agent G: Donwarr, a densely forest place, thought to be populated only by bugs and lizards. They were wrong. The Na Vohz are most certainty populating Donwarr, as they have repeatedly made clear to me. They breed the local Sliver Bugs to huge sizes through stolen technology and witchcraft. When riding them, they must be sure to be completely cloaked, with multiple layers covering them and large google to protect their eyes. This is due to the incredible speed of the wingbeats of the Slivers. One can be blown over just by standing next to one. The Na Vohz use Long Vibro Spears to incapacite their prey. As of now, this is the only information known about them. I hope to find out more in my coming days stationed here. C&C much appreciated.

    Shame Yahoo had to break Flickr on iPad2

    So, having worked perfectly for years, it seems Yahoo decided it would be a good idea to break flickr a couple of weeks ago - so it doesn't work anymore on anything but the very latest browsers. I'm running Safari iOS5.1 on an iPad2 and now I get an 'unsupported browser' message when I go into the photo preview page - so I can't comment anymore. Kind of annoying since I've never encountered any other page anywhere else on the internet that doesn't work with Safari 5.1. 'Why not upgrade to iOS7 or iOS8?' I hear you ask. Because they run like treacle on iPad2 with more lagging than my loft. I also hate the 'every-app-looks-the-same-flat-white' style that Johnny Ive imposed after Steve Jobs died - and the confusing way the wifi networks jump around when you click them. Anyway, guess I'll have to get used to using flickr on my tiny Android phone screen. /rant
  22. Activity- Exploration. Location- Mynderis - A04. Previously, Mark of Orion saved Captan Brutus from the Malicious Munchmoid on Jurin II. In reward for his brave service and quick thinking, Mark was promoted from the exploration dropship team to a new solo mission. Mark was sad to leave his comrades but the new pay grade was definitely a must. Not eating at the maggot-infested cafeteria was pricey at best! Mark's next mission, to try out a new MANTIS™ prototype vehicle. Arachtis Strider M2 The Arachtis Strider M2© has just come out of the diabolical labs of MANTIS™ HQ. Unlike most conventional vehicles, the Strider has six independently-powered limbs that propel the saucer--style body. Made from a mix of Durithium composites, the strong but flexible exoskeleton provides a durable frame for the softer bioengineered core. The "feet" are based on the same cell structure of the tentacles of the Garctaloid of Yallorn II, which can send sensory information to the control panels while providing excellent support and superior grip. But this unique transportation mode is not just for show. The Arachtis Strider can traverse even rough terrain at 85 MPH. And the 9 Awesomnium-powered thrusters means that this craft is capable of effectively flying in upper level atmospheres and beyond. The designers believed interplanetary travel in the current Strider model is possible, though dangerous due to the vehicle's small size and weak debris shields. Understandably, Mark was very excited to man the first expedition in the Arachtis Strider M2©! His first mission was on the currently uncontested planet of Mynderis A04. neither Octan nor Kawashita were believed to have any operatives on the surface. As Mark touched down on the crusty plain, he felt for the first time what is must be like to be a 20-foot tall alien bug! "Ohohoho! This thing is FUN!" The location Mark had been posted was on the northern tip of the volcanic planet, here the temperature was well below freezing and the lava flows and eruptions were less frequent. The advanced computers immediately began to direct Mark to curious object on a rocky slope. On closer inspection, the purple edifice gave off large amounts of energy and radiation. Probably Awesomnium! "Time to try out the feet." Arachtis Strider M2 on Mynderis A04 Mark directed one of the limbs to rest on the larger crystal in the center of the mound. The computer immediately read out, "Content: Crystallized Awesomnium 98%, Basalt ash 2%" Mark smiled. This tech was useful. "Nice! I wonder how deep this crystal thing goes..." "Approximately 1300 feet." "Haha! This is awesome!" "Incorrect: The content is 98% Awesomnium." "Yes, yes! I know! Hmm... Where are those humor settings..." To Be Continued! (Begin commentary) Well, I didn't have much time this week, but I did have a friend over on friday and while we were building and tinkering with the LEGO I managed to come up with this bug saucer thingy! Reminds me of War of the Worlds, even though I've never seen the movie or read the books! Hopefully next week I'll be able to DESTROY reply to all the MANTIS™ Haters!
  23. Here is my lastest car. The classic Volkswagen Beetle, officialy called Type 1, or informally in some places around the world the VW Bug. This car received a lot of modifcations and improvements along the years, I have built the 1967 model. This car is made in scale 1:7.8. The total size is: 65 studs of length, only 25 wide and 23 of high (50x20x18 cm) The weight is 2.5 kgs, with around 3000 parts and 5 motors. As always it includes some remote controlled functions: - Steering (M motor) - Drive (2 XL motors) - Sequential gearbox (PF Servo motor) - Brakes (M motor) The sequential gearbox is a modified version of the Mustang's gearbox (3rd Gen V2), with 4+N+R speeds and as always with auto-clutch. The speeds ratio: R - 1.25:1 1 - 1.25:1 2 - 1:1 3 - 1:1.33 4 - 1:1.67 The max speed in 4th speed is 4 kph (~2.5 mph) It has a gear indicator in the interior, between the front seats. Boxer-4 fake engine under the rear bonnet. The bodywork Also you can disassembly the bodywork removing only 5 pins, do it is very easy and fast. A complete bodywork with openable doors, front trunk bonnet and and rear engine door. Also the doors have lock, you need turn the door handle to open it. It has 4 full size seats and folding front seats. The suspension is based in the real one: front rigid beam independent suspension axle and rear swing axle. Also the front axle has stabilizer bar. The steering has ackerman geometry and working steering wheel. The car also has working brakes in all wheels: disc brakes in the fron and drum brakes in the rear. In addition it includes functional brake pedal. Now the "most wanted" picture for technic fans. Like the Mustang the instructions will be available coming soon Finally as always a little video: As always for more info visit my website:
  24. The Assassin Bug (a.k.a. Wheel Bug) most commonly have an elongated head with a distinct narrowed neck, long legs, and a prominent, segmented tube (rostrum) for feeding and defending itself. These predators use the long rostrum to inject a lethal saliva that liquefies the insides of the prey, which are then sucked out. The saliva contains enzymes that predigest the tissues they swallow. This process is generally referred to as extra-oral digestion. The saliva is commonly effective at killing prey substantially larger than the bug itself. Galaxy Squad Assassin Bug Inspiration by mink66, on Flickr This is a nasty bug! And the perfect model for another Lego Galaxy Squad Alien Bugoid creation! A powerful Bug that strikes absolute fear into any Galaxy Squad Team member especially if caught alone out on the battle field. The Assassin Bug can make a quick meal out of any unsuspecting human, or store it in its purplue coccoon for later consumption or to bring back to the hive. Good luck humans...they will need it!

    Blacktron Harvester

    When Blacktron Reconnaissance discovered the value of pollen from Persei Six, they created the Harvester Drones to steal as much of it as possible. Unlike the Nalongii Pollinator the Harvester has received some inbuilt aggressive programming and the accompanying "wing chung" unarmed combat techniques. Side by side with the Nalongii Pollinator!
