Allowed Sets Set that has been officially released by LEGO and available for the purchase. Set whose Official Instructions has been released from TLG and are available in LEGO website. IMPORTANT NOTE: if building instructions or set's references are not easily available on common sources, please report that. The Set have to be constructed using official LEGO instructions and not interpreting preliminary or official images. The Set have to contain something you can build. Sets with scattered parts or single or few minifigures are not allowed. Irregular Posts Important NOTE: Irregular entries (inserted in posts that don't respect the Topic's Rules) won't be indexed. When you fix an irregular post, inform the indexer, so that he can update the index database. Good habits Avoid unnecessary posts inside this topic, if possible. Always use a new post to add new entry/entries. Don't add (or remove!) models to any existing post. If you think to build more sets in a short period of time, don't post them one by one but amass a bit of them and then post them together. Try to avoid to post more than one time in a single day. For any question/explanation/request/communication contact the indexer using private messages, when possible. Use of images in the topic [Guide] Only images related to posted sets (and then lxf file) are allowed, as a preview. Only one image for each set is allowed. Don't quote images from other posts. Any other image can be inserted as text link. Images should be simple and clear: no "creative" images are allowed, but simple screenshots. Avoid compositions (more images in one), images with another image as background, animated images, 3D images, renderings with external software, image with custom added parts, etc... Try to place objects inside the image so that the image results compact (i.e. avoid internal large blank space if possible) but clear. Try to place the camera so that the set results well visible. Avoid flat framing but choose a good 3D angle. As images are for preview purpose only, should be not too big! Maximum size allowed is 512x512 pixels for big sets (such as castles, modular buildings, stations, large space ships, etc...). Use intermediate sizes (for example 448px, 384px, 320px, ...) for smaller models. The 256x256px size or lower is often good for small sets. Crop images completely removing horizontal and vertical blank stripes around the subject (zero-pixles margins). Insert a model Report set's data and emphasize that in bold. Set's data include set Number, set official Name and set's Theme and subtheme if any. For example: 5988 - Pharaoh's Forbidden Ruins - Theme: Adventure If the set has more "configurations" (different models), please specify which one you are reproducing with LDD (Model A, Model B, etc...). NOTE: Alternate Versions (official different configurations for the same set) are counted as separate sets. If the set has been Re-Released with an identical or similar version, report the alternate Set ID(s). Report both the version of LDD and the brickset used to build the model. Insert a screenshot of your creation, in order to provide a preview. One screenshot for each set (see the rules about images above). Write an Error List, reporting if the model is complete or some element is missing or replaced (by a similar part, a brick assembly or any custom solution). Use part IDs to identify the bricks. Don't divide a single set in more than one post. Put a single set in a single .lxf file. You are encouraged to use LDD groups function to separate different elements in complex sets. LDD model should be similar to the original model as much as possible. Include minifigs, if any. Replace missing decorations with suitable ones, if possible. Modified models are welcome, but in different .lxf files, as an "extra". Every personalization (personal logos, additions, changes) makes a model a "Modified Model". and obviously... Share you lxf file! Update a set Update the post where you originally inserted the set. Report the update in the Upgrade Topic. Be care to follow the rules of the Upgrade Topic. [Sets created by other users] If the set has been built by another user, contact him and ask him to update his entry. Provide some help, if you find a way to solve some issue. If contact model's builder is not possible or he don't want to update it, insert the updated model in a new post as if it is a new model, but specify it is an update and insert the link to the original model's post. Inform the indexer before posting. Use of the new bricks from the custom LDD updates [new!] A model without custom bricks is necessary to the entry to be accepted as regular. A model with custom bricks is allowed as an extra. You are encouraged to publish both the models for your entries. Book or Request a set Refer to "Official Lego sets - Book, WIP, Requests" Topic. NOTE: you can ever choose to make an already made or booked set, if you want. Besides You are encouraged to inform an LDD file maker if you notice an adjustable defect in his/her LDD file! If you notice something wrong in the index, please report it to the indexer. If you use custom pieces to replace missing bricks in LDD, please post it in the "LDD custom bricks" Topic! Rules in brief Read the rules before posting here. Only regular entries will be indexed. Allowed sets: instructions officially released, no spared parts. Report references if necessary. Insert a model General rules: don't split model in more posts, don't add or remove entries to an existing post, group entries. Don't add personalizations to the model (except in order to replace missing parts). Use Groups. Extra are allowed, as text links. Models containing custom parts are allowed ad extra only. Necessary content: Set's Data, Image, LXF File, Error List. - Set's data: Set's ID, Set's name, Theme/Subtheme, alternative model (Model A, B, ...), alternative Set IDs if any. - Image: one for each set, simple screenshots, PNG with Alpha channel, maximum size 512x (big sets), crop (zero-pixles margins), not scattered, no flat view. - LXF file: one for each entry, direct link, report LDD and brickset version. - Error List: missing bricks/decorations, replaced brick/decorations, brick made replacements.

  2. The Beauties of Hungary: part 1 – University of Debrecen, main building Name: University of Debrecen – Debreceni Egyetem Location: Debrecen Piece count: 803 Situated in Debrecen, Eastern Hungary, the University was founded in 1538 is the oldest continuously operating institution of higher education in Hungary. The most remarkable building of the university houses mostly the Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Science and Technology. A personal note: Debrecen is my home town, and I studied in this university, though most of my classes were not here, but in the chemistry building next to it.
  3. I've been split in scale since I began building LEGO trains with all my shunters, freight wagons and latest passenger train being 7-wide or 1:54 and all my older locomotives and passenger wagons being 6-wide or 1:60. With almost all of my buildings close to true minifig-scale, I've been contemplating to unify my scale for a few years now but I couldn't decide to go for either 7 or 8-wide...in addition to being pretty much satisfied with most of my 6-wide models as they are. Well, no more Presenting my favourite Danish State Railways’ (DSB) locomotive redesigned to 8-wide and digitally rendered in two versions and liveries... DSB Litra MZ The powerful Litra MZ locomotives were built by Swedish Nydquist & Holm AB (Nohab) and Danish subcontractors on license from General Motors. 10 MZ (I) were built from 1967-1969. 20 MZ (III) were built from 1972-1974. 61 in total were built across all four variants (I-IV). Quite a few are still used today by private railway companies either domestic or abroad, in Iran, Norway and Australia. My model of DSB Litra MZ (I): DSB maroon livery used in the 1960/70s with the highly recognizable crown and wing logo on the front. Scale: 1:46 Length: 56 studs from buffer to buffer Width: 8 bricks Bricks: 1.264 Powered: 2 x L-motors, 2 x AAA battery boxes + 2 x SBricks, 1 x AAA battery box + 1 x SBrick/PFx Brick or 2 x BuWizz battery boxes Control: PF with SBrick, PFx Brick or BuWizz Designed: 2020 My older 6-wide version from 2016: https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/119474-moc-the-danish-state-railways-dsb-locomotive-litra-mz-i/ All renders are done on the very high setting in Stud.io with all of my own custom decals added in the PartDesigner tool. Upgearing from 20 to 12 teeth with a ratio of 5:3....more speed, less power PF L-motor design with good advice from some of the Brick Train Depot guys. Credit to Duq for coming up with the original idea of using the T-piece. 3-axled bogie: The center wheel will utilize a black hockey puck as a blind driver or a 2 x 2 round tile with open stud and 1 x 1 round tile placed on top on it as the alternative. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=47576#T=C My model of DSB Litra MZ (III): DSB "modern" red & black livery used in the 1980s. Scale: 1:46 Length: 56 studs from buffer to buffer Width: 8 bricks Bricks: 1.331 Powered: 2 x L-motors, 2 x AAA battery boxes + 2 x SBricks, 1 x AAA battery box + 1 x SBrick/PFx Brick or 2 x BuWizz battery boxes Control: PF with SBrick, PFx Brick or BuWizz Designed: 2020 My older 6-wide version from 2011 and redesigned in 2015: https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/172599-moc-herningværket-vestkraft-is-complete-set-of-locomotives-and-wagons Part of the fun and what set LEGO trains apart from pure model railroading is the inclusion of minifigs, so whenever and whatever I always try to make space for them and also keep on some play features and interiors. The 8-wide body is quite roomy and has a fairly correct interior. 2 x PF L-motors with either 2 x AAA battery boxes + 2 x SBricks, 1 x AAA battery box + 1 x SBrick/PFx Brick or 2 x BuWizz battery boxes can be utilized: Both locomotives with DSB Litra MZ (I) in front of the later version DSB Litra MZ (III) in the background: Technical addendum: For the first time ever I have used technical drawings overlayed with LEGO scaled grids to get the dimensions right or as close to right as possible. The models haven't been built yet but some smaller builds have been used for testing during the design phase. My slightly shorter test train didn’t really like driving through R40 curves, no surprise there Too much length overall and the wheel sets in both ends of the bogies are also pretty far from each other producing some drag. Going through isn't impossible though but rather uneven and a tiny bit struggling, especially with added wagons. There are no problems driving on straight tracks and through larger radii curves. To my surprise however was the finding that the total number of parts were the same or even slightly less than a similar 7-wide model So henceforth, 8-wide it is

    [MOC] DSB IC3 (8-wide DMU)

    Presenting another of my Danish State Railways’ (DSB) trains redesigned to 8-wide and digitally rendered (with a bonus livery)... DSB IC3The Danish State Railways’ (DSB) highly successful and innovative InterCity 3 (IC3) passenger train was co-developed by Siemens Duewag in Germany and ABB Scandia in Denmark.The train is operated by DSB in Denmark and Sweden, by Renfe Operadora in Spain and by Israel Railways in Israel.Amtrak in the USA and Via Rail in Canada have tested the train in the past.A trainset consists of three units, two diesel motor units (MFA and MFB) and one intermediary unit (FF).Up to five trainsets can be coupled together. 96 trainset were built for DSB from 1989 to 1991.All are still in service today.My model: Named "Jørgen Vig" Scale: 1:48 Length: 157 studs (MFA: 55 - FF: 47 - MFB 55) or approx. 122 cm Width: 8 studs Bricks: 2.912 (MFA: 1.032 - FF: 841 - MFB 1.039) Locomotion: 2 x 9v or 2 x PF/PUP train motors Power: 9v, 2 x LEGO AAA battery boxes or 2 x BuWizz battery boxes Control: 9v, PUP, SBrick, PFx Brick or BuWizz Designed: 2022 Conversion of my 7-wide model from 2017 to 8-wide with more accurate dimensions. Very high setting render from Stud.io with custom decals added in the PartDesigner tool. Its able to navigate R40 but just barely and would look rather silly tho: Interior with seats for 83 minifigs: Decorative side design for the bogies - a combination of parts and the molded decorative side for train motors: The coupling part can be change to a Liftarm Thin 1x4 (BL#32449) when combining several trainsets. Technique used for the sliding doors: Removing the 1 x 4 Tile as shown enables the door to slide open as a play feature. The fixed outer doors are a necessary part of the construction otherwise the very long body breaks too easily due to the roof being removable. However, they are designed to be rebuilt open when needed and the trainset stationary on display: The trainset is (fictionally) named Jørgen Vig with the crest of Billund added: Bonus livery: Livery when Amtrak tested the IC3 Flexliner DMU (Diesel Multiple Unit ) in 1997:

    [MOC] Prototype Tank (Generation Zero)

    Codename: Stridsmaskin 90 "Resen" The 2nd most heavily armored and armed of the machines, the Tank towers over houses and players alike, shaking the very ground with each step. Do not engage it without a strategy, plan your encounter in advance, and always be ready to run when the rockets start flying. The reference images are under the spoiler:
  6. The Galactic Plastics Volkite is a LEGO spaceship originally built by Nick Trotta (galacticplastics.com). As with all creations by Nick, the Volkite uses clever building techniques to achieve unusual shapes and angles. I have now created a digital version of the Volkite: Galactic Plastics Volkite - starfield by Brick Random, on Flickr In addition to rendering the above pictures, I've also used to digital model to create step-by-step PDF building instructions and a full parts inventory. My next step will be to actually build a real life version! The free step-by-step building instructions and the parts inventory for the Volkite are now available on Rebrickable.com: Galactic Plastics Volkite
  7. We have a [KEY TOPIC] Official Lego sets made in LDraw , and a [KEY TOPIC] Official LEGO Sets made in LDD .. Is there/will there be a [KEY TOPIC] Official LEGO Sets made in Stud.io ? Stud.io has the nifty feature that you can import an official set.. but all it does is import the correct amounts and numbers of parts from the Bricklink Cattledog. (which in itself is a time consuming job taken care of..) Given the ease of import and export to/from both LDraw and LDD, I think it may be possible to combine the entire contents of the other Key Topics into one. Anyone have the appropriate amount of cloud storage and time to import/vet? (just askin', not volunteering)
  8. Codename: Jaktmaskin 60 "Ulven" Intelligent, swift, and silent, the Hunter attacks with lethal precision, showcasing a diverse range of tactics and weaponry to take down survivors of the uprising. They use LMGs and Rocket Launchers at a distance and their deadly bladed right arm in close combat. — Generation Zero Wiki And here's another Generation Zero build! I am proud of the result! The reference images are under the spoiler:
  9. I've been in love with Generation Zero, Avalanche Studios' first person, co-operative shooter about teens in 1980s Sweden surviving a robot invasion. It has a very distinct art style, not unlike that of the famous Swedish sci-fi artist Simon Stahlenhag. I feel like there were some tensions between him and Generation Zero's Devs, but don't quote me on this. The Runner is - hopefully - the first in a line of GenZ-inspired MOCs, and also my first finished MOC of 2022. Procrastination have been wearing hard on me for the past few years, so I welcome any kind of positive change! The reference images are under Spoiler:

    The city project keep growing

    Hello there, after a short break, I can now show you the new update of my digital city project. This time i added the new book store to the city and expanded the roads. I also changed and added some details you told me. Therefore I changed the subway entrance to an emergency exit and added the road construction site. Feel free to watch the building video below. I´m happy if you do cause it would help my little channel to grow a bit :) Below the video I also posted the current pictures of the city. The city layout in the overview. The new book store on the right, with the expanded streets in front. The expansion. In the left, the changed emergeny exit for the subway. Also nice to see the dimensions of the road construction. The road construction in detail. From the left: The Light arrow, the generator and then the open part with pipes. In the mid the workers put there unused equipment and the dirt from the hole. I hope you enjoy the new added part of the city. Let me know if you do and tell me if there are points of improvement :)
  11. I'm looking for a new lego-building program to use for my personal projects. Lego Digital Designer was pretty good, but I found some faults in it that won't be fixed due to it's support being discontinued by LEGO. I was hoping there may be a CAD Lego building software that could help me with my Lego projects and help succeed in the following areas that LDD failed me, including- A more complete index of Lego parts, old and new: I found that not only did LDD not have an up-to-date index on the lego parts of today (because it's no longer being updated), but it also was missing parts from much older sets, like older 1990s pirate ships and space sets. Is there a program out there that is more comprehensive? A counter for how many of each type of piece you're using. I was hoping I could find a quick easy solution to actively keep track of the number and types of parts I'm working with. LDD only ket track of the total pieces. A physics engine that allows for mechanisms to function. I'm curious of there's any kind of program for lego building that can emulate the functionality of various types of technic mechanisms I've wanted to work on. If I were to ever come up with something actually worth selling online or promoting, what program has the most relaxed terms of service for it's usage in marketing? I may be inclined to sell a thing or two, assuming that's even possible for a nobody like me. Is there a program out there that can fulfill all 4 of these needs of mine? I don't mind having to pay for a program, but my computer is kinda old. I don't know the specs of my computer, but what I do know is that it can run LDD perfectly fine, it just starts up kinda slow (starting up at anything is an issue for this computer, but it can still perform pretty well for me needs). It has a sticker describing it as a "CORE i3 7th Generation" Intel thing. I'm not very computer-savvy, so pardon me if this is lackluster information.

    City Update Nr.3

    Hey there, this is the 3rd update of my digital city project. Because the streets where empty all the time, I started to bring some life into the city. I added traffic lights, street lamps, trash container, bicycle stands and other cool stuff. I also created some small stories on the street like the skateboarder who's racing through the city. Some of the impressions are shown on the pictures below the video. If you're interest in watching the update video feel free to watch it on YT: I hope you like the new addings. Let me know if there are other things I can add or improve.
  13. Hello, I'd like to present one of my first attempts at a digital MOC made using Studio. How far digital building software has come since the days of LDD! It's a ferry, built in the Classic Town style using a retro pallette. It is crewed by 1 minifigure, and can be boarded from both ends by 4-wide vehicles. It can transport 2 vehicles at a time (based on 6633 Family Car), as well as approx. 4 passengers on the walkways and 2 bicycles. I based the design on this Playmobil set from a few years ago. I've never collected Playmobil but I saw a review of this set on JANGBrick's channel and thought it was quite good. Here is the ferry, docked at a small pier, unloading 6633 Family Car. And here it is, on its own. I hope you enjoyed looking at this model. It's been a long time since I've posted on Eurobricks, but I've never stopped looking at all the wonderful creations ~ A.S.

    Another Lego city project?

    Hey there, I know there are countless posts on Lego cities. So why would you need another one? Let me explain my Plan: I started building MOC´s in 2020 and I love it. In the past, I posted some of the MOC´s here in this forum, like the pizza restaurant and die bakery & barber building: Now I had the idea to build a completely digital lego city from the individual houses. I could build an american themed city with moc buildings and digitally replicated lego sets .And because you don't need space to build, you would be unlimited in size. Why I only build MOC´s digital: I have noticed that many people are enthusiastic about Lego and would also like to build entire landscapes or cities. But since lego has now become very expensive, this is no longer possible for everyone. In addition, a Lego city requires a lot of space, which many people do not have, for example, in small apartments. I want to show these people that you can live out the Lego passion and create great things even without much money and space. You only need a PC an your imagination. For my MOC´s I always use the Studio 2.0 software from Bricklink. Can you tell me, if this is a good idea? Please give me feedback and tell me if I have not considered something. If you like this idea, I can imagine to post here regularly about the progress and also record the whole thing in videos on Youtube.
  15. "Ladies and gentlemen, please take your seats. The play the children of our elementary school have worked so hard for, is about to begin. And curtain!" [MOC] Tonight on Stage: Castle under Siege! by Bert Van Raemdonck, on Flickr "Once upon a time, in a faraway kingdom, there was a princess ruling over a beautiful country. She was so kind that everyone loved her. Everyone apart from the evil wizard nextdoor, that is. Ages of obsessing over magic had made him bitter and he couldn't take hearing the laughter coming from the castle anymore. So after brooding for only a moment, with his dark magic he summoned an enraged ancient dragon and set out to take over the castle and lock away the princess... Luckily, when the wizard and his dragon arrive at the castle gate, the princess' bravest knight is waiting there to - ... Uhm, it appears our brave knight is nowhere to be found... Excuse us for that, ladies and gentlemen, our children spent so much time working on the set that they didn't get to go through a full rehearsal. But - aha - I see that the princess is taking matters into her own hands! She seems to have realized that one thing is true about dragons that's true about all of us: they get in a much better mood once they have a filled stomach! So with one of her famous home-made cookies and her general kindness, she manages to appease the dragon. So everybody ended up living happily ever after after all! Including the wizard, because the next morning he found a box of fresh cookies on his doorstep, courtesy of the princess!" [MOC] Tonight on Stage: Castle under Siege! ... behind the scenes by Bert Van Raemdonck, on Flickr Thanks for indulging me in this build that's quite different from what I'm used to! I was pushed out of my comfort zone thanks to a contest on instagram where the assignment was to build a castle in a week's time. Knowing how I build, there was no way I would be able to finish a castle I was happy with in that amount of time, I got the idea of just building the facade of the castle, thinking I could get away with it if I framed it as a stage set build of cardboard, wood, crates and pallets with visible supports and ladders at the backside. Turns out it worked, as the jury selected my build as the winner! This really is the first time I did a castle build and I enjoyed it a lot. I love the fact that I can bring some architecture into it but that I can exaggerate the shapes, proportions and details to make it look fun. I started from the masonry pattern on the walls which you don't end up seeing much of in the end. The technique actually was pretty simple even though it requires puzzling some pieces together. Every row of bricks is basically a stack of 1x1 plates, 1x1 bricks with side stud(s) and 1x1 plates with clip light. A row of tiles is attached to the side studs of the SNOT bricks. At the back side, the 1x1 plates with clip light attach to each other in a column of 1x1 plates and 1x1 round tiles with pin. I meant it to give texture to the wall in the same way painting a stage set would and am glad I was able to pull it off. If you're interested in more details, feel free to check out the digital .io file. From there, it was playing around with the building blocks I had to create a fun castle. In the end, a friend suggested to add a dragon and that's when the story took shape. Considering the time I didn't go for an epic dragon build (maybe one day?) but instead for a cutesy dragon custom puppeteerd by two people. for how quickly it came together, I love how much character it has! Thanks for having a look! Maybe not the kind of castle you were expecting to see today, but I hope it makes you smile! ___________________ Find the digital file here
  16. Hello, I would like to show you my last digital project: The EL 4 was built in 1903 for the "Trossinger Eisenbahn" one of the first ever electric Railroad Companies in Germany. It was founded by the citizens of Trossingen especially by businessmen who needed a connection to the state railway that was about 8 kilometers away instead of bringing their goods there with coaches. Trossingen is best known in Germany (and abroad) being the city of harmonicas (Hohner). The Original is still running, it might be one of the oldest working electric Locomotives of the world. If you like to know more: https://www.trossinger-eisenbahn.de/english-summary/ I hope you like it. Best regards, Volker
  17. Presenting another of my Danish State Railways’ (DSB) locomotives - redesigned from 7-wide to 8-wide and digitally rendered but already built and tested DSB Litra MK The Danish State Railways (DSB) first radio control shunter Litra MK was built by Siemens/Vossloh in Germany as type VSFT G322. 25 were built from 1996 to 1998. All but one shunter were transferred to DSB subsidiary Railion in 2001 and DB Schenker Rail in 2007. My model: The DSB Gods version. Scale: 1:45 Length: 27 studs from buffer to buffer Width: 8 studs Bricks: 578 Powered: 1 x 9v battery, 1 x PF custom adapter, 1 x M-motor & 1 x SBrick. Gear ratio: 1:1 Designed: 2020 (third version - the first (6-wide) in 2012 and the second (7-wide) in 2014) All renders are done on the very high setting in Stud.io with all of my own custom decals added in the PartDesigner tool. Rear with the hidden SBrick inside: Removable hood for easy placement of the 9v battery inside - probably a 800 mAh rechargeable Li-Po one: The mechanical power transmission technique with 1:1 gearing: My earlier 7-wide version was rather fragile (and prone to implosions when handled the wrong way) but this time around the construction is pretty solid and the mechanical power transmission much better with surprising pulling capability. Long live 8-wide
  18. Presenting a Dutch version of my DSB Litra MK NedTrain Vossloh G 400 B All renders are done on the very high setting in Stud.io with all of my own custom decals added in the PartDesigner tool. The railing can only be made in Dark Green using BlueBrixx parts for now. Change all Dark Green to Dark Turquoise and the railing can be made using genuine LEGO parts. Left shunter: Central coupling arm on without any wagons. Right shunter: Central coupling arm replaced with a coupling magnet when pulling or pusing wagons. Interior with placement of the SBrick, M-motor and 9v battery: Thanks to UrbanErwin for giving me this idea
  19. Can I get them by anyway? I tried with importing from sets but it didn'twork out. I could do with part designer if I had decals but I don't know where to find them.
  20. More renders can be found here: https://imgur.com/a/ORr8fkh
  21. Hi everybody I'm new in this forum. I would like to submit you the results of my hard work. I'm writing a new Cad for building Lego models on your PC. It's FREE and has many useful features you cannot find in any other such application like LDD or MLCad. Maybe someone already known it. Watch videos and download it from http://staff.polito.it/sergio.reano/ please feedback your impressions (good and bad!) and your hints I will answer in 2-3 days... enjoy building Sergio
  22. Dear all, I´ve got a major problem with my LDD and i don´t know what happened. Today i launched the software as usual. Right after startup, when the start-screen with the latest six models appears. Some of the previews aren´t shown correctly. There are only red bricks with red exclamation marks. When i try to open one of these files LDD tells me that a bunch of parts, in some case over 200 have been removed. And that´s how the models look like, a bit like a piece of cheese, with many holes and open surfaces. The next error i´ve got is the part-libary on the left, the four last categories do not have a specific picture, they´re all the same and marked with a red question-mark. It also seems to my that the parts in the other categories are mixed and not sorted like they should be. Downloading again and reinstallation did not bring any success. I also tried to get it running with an older backup version on my external hard-drive but that wasn´t working too. What makes me wonder is that the Assets.lif file is different in size. Could the problem be here? Could the part-libary be damaged? Is there any possibility to fix that? With kind regards Martin
  23. Hi, wanted to share this little gem we put together: https://beta.makerbrane.com/tools/ldraw-viewer/ It opens .ldr, .mpd, .dat into an online 3D viewer, you can then change the background color and angle and export snapshots. It also converts the file into MakerBrane format, and opens it in another viewer with a different rendering style. It can also open in the 3D MakerSpace which is like LDD or mecabricks but more of a Universal Digital Builder because it has parts from other systems as well - but it you can't edit everything because not all the LEGO parts have been fully referenced yet for auto-snapping yet. Promising though, right? If you try it, post a screenshot here and let me know if there are any features we should add.
  24. Toa Visorath, member of the Toa team you call in when everything has gone sideways. Got too much Rahi? Call in Visorath and the other Toa on his team, they'll handle it. Some Piraka on the loose? Bring in Visorath and the gang. Visorath wears an Akaku Nuva, as it allows him to see farther and with X-ray, even with his elemental rifle. Those wings help him soar to heights to get the advantage or to avoid rahi, makuta, or other enemies when things get dicey. Mainly he uses them to get to a nice perch to look over his other teammates, or shoot at enemies. "Do I feel lucky?" I'm sad LDD doesn't have better/more Bionicle pieces,. The rifle is a modified version of this one.
  25. Hi, I'm new I realise that LDD MOCS probably aren't everyone's first choice and I myself would much rather see one of these in the flesh than just on a screen but of course the availability of parts, prices and time prevail. We'll start with the less impressive of the two I have to show ;) That appears to have worked, so fair enough. It's Stephenson's Rocket only it includes the provision for a face should I ever feel compelled to add one. Theoretically it could run on a layout with something pushing it around but I don't trust the rigidity of it at all. Not entirely happy with the tender because it's so large compared to the engine itself, but it serves. Now for the one I am actually pleased about, an LNER J70 tram engine. I'm not ordinarily one to use SNOT techniques because I never used to be able to figure out how to make everything fit properly (and I still haven't, really) hence the use of those parts that go around minifigs' necks with a stud on the back. I even made a mock up interior for it featuring a boiler and coal bunkers! As well as sort of an underframe with cylinders Have to say, I'm very impressed with the outcome and it's far better than anything I'd ever attempted previously. I'm particularly proud of my solution to shaping the cow catcher. As with the Rocket, however, it isn't self-powered so I may begin work on a Wisbech & Upwell tramway coach with power functions. Thanks for dropping by and let me know what you think - Nick
