Hi ! I'm having troubles with bending cables on LDD, using the flex tool. When I first click on the end of the cable I want to bend, there is no problem, it bends how I want, following my mouse. But when I want to stop it bending in a precise position, I left click, and the cable returns to its original form (straight). The pipe in question is 76270 ( which is a piece we can bend!! ) What am I doing wrong ? Thanks for helping Greetings Yann
Hi guys I was experimenting with my RC motors (I don't have power functions yet) and well, the motors are going crazy. I saw a topic mentioning putting 2 motors under one baseplate that whould be impossible as the motors would work against each other. But if im putting 2 wires on the battery box the motor that is connected to the top wire is driving backwards! Does someone know what is happening?
Junpei posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingI have been interested a lot in the flex system lately and have been reading about it a lot. It seems very useful, but unfortunately I do not have any. The one major problem that the flex system is too flexy and most of all too weak. It is merely a great idea that has not reached its full potential, but the coolest thing made with the flex system is Marvin G.'s 1:7 scale super car IMHO. The braking push-pull system is ingenious, but if it was motorized by say a pf motor, the flex system would not be able to handle the torque, but a linkage even with 1 x 6 or 1 x 9 links is much less realistic. So I am proposing metal flex cables for many uses including steering, braking, etc. They would probably be relatively easy to make (or even find at Lowe's) and would be much cheaper than the discontinued plastic ones, so the only real expense would be the connectors which are much less expensive. I wish Lego had more spur gear sizes though, I want to make a trail bike with working gear shifting and brakes like this. I think this would be a perfect use for the flex system and just wish the cables could be stronger. Sound like a good idea? Please feel free to post comments and criticism, and just hope Lego is reading this!
