I am building a large ski resort with multiple fixed grip chairlifts and one detachable I am having problems with the fixed grip and I haven't done more than the frame on the detachable. the problems I am having with the fixed grip are simple, but I cannot figure out how to fix them. the chairs jam up a lot and the rope derails easily, both of which can damage the entire lift. on the detachable I need a small grip that can detach and reattach at the terminal, but flow easily over support and hold down sheaves. I am trying not to spent too much, but I want all of the lifts to work right. I am using power functions XL motors to power them.
Hello fellow humans! Here is a build that i completed very early this year, after dedicating many, many hours to it over last year. When I was a kid, I always wanted to build a large tree house out of LEGO but never had the parts or the disposable income.. Now, I have both of those things, I thought it was time to get it on the drawing boards. I would have posted it heaps sooner, but these pics were taken for Bricks CULTURE magazine #6 and wanted to do the right thing by them and hold off until the next edition was out. As I'm still getting used to uploading images and yet to tweek the RAW ones to a usable file size, this is all i have for you to check out here.. Though if you'd like to check out some of the finer details and the rear side, please jump over to my Flickr account here and have a squiz! There is quite the philosophical story behind it all, but I'll leave that for the pages of BC. Thanks to Cristian Brunelli for the great photographic shots, as my camera, if you could call it that, wouldn't stand up to the task in the state of my studio. Oh yeah, just by the by, the chairlift, waterwheel and waterfalls all move thanks to the Power of a single XL PF Motor and a string of gearboxes.. And I'd be more than happy to prove it to you, if someone has some footage.. I was lucky enough to get these shots! haha! Anywho, Enjoy.
