  1. LEGOLAND pretty much always says that they use all the same parts selections available in LEGO sets and that any kid would have so that you could possibly "recreate" what you see in LEGOLAND parks. And don't make custom pieces for themselves to be true to LEGO. I've been to the model shop in LLM and found out that they have 1x2 jumper plates in transclear, which by my research has never been released in a set or made known in public. I'm pretty sure that's not the only part they're keeping to themselves. But my question is, why does LEGOLAND say that the parts they use are completely same to what other people would have? Is LEGOLAND lying to us all?
  2. Hi everyone I have a model set up in LDD and I am now at the point where I'd like to order parts to build the model with real bricks. The problem is that many of the parts are not available in the colours I've used. Does anyone know of a simple way of showing the parts that are unavailable so that I can swap them out for colours that do exist? Or is it simply a case of painstakingly going through the model and checking each brick one at a time? I wasn't sure if there is a way of uploading the model to Bricklink so that it automatically highlights the missing parts and shows alternative colours that are available instead. Sorry if this sounds like an obvious thing to most people. I'm a bit of a novice with this though and although I've built lots of models in LDD I've never actually ordered parts for the models before and have quite limited experience of using Bricklink as well.
  3. So, I've been doing some building lately with brown plates, and I've noticed they're a little brittle, and break easily. The problem with brown by North White, on Flickr Are my pieces just old or something, or is this a common problem?
  4. Hiya, I'm assembling my 2 x 10027 Train Engine Sheds ready to sell and I've run into an odd problem. Brickset's inventory says it contains the new stone greys while Peeron says it's the old greys. I tried to narrow it down by assessing whether I had the correct baseplates, tracks and other unique parts in the right colours which lead me to believe Peeron is correct and this 2003 set was on the cusp of 'greygate' but if someone could check their set and confirm which greys it uses, I'd be very grateful. Were there any sets that contained a mix of both out of interest? Thanks, Alex
  5. Hello, I am looking for the part 4621555 but transparent. I want to change the two panels over the engine of the porsche gt3 rs so I can see it. Are there any panels like this? Greetings
  6. While the Metallic Silver parts still don't exist outside of the official 41999 set, the new 42083 Bugatti makes it possible to source and build the main body from Dark Blue parts. Those that missed out on 41999 at least now have the option to build it from parts if they wanted to.
  7. DOWNLOAD: Runnable version /Windows platform/ GitHub repository HOW THIS WORK: This extracts brick usage informations form a LEGO Digital Designer model file. This program tells you, which parts where used, and how many of them, thus creating a Bill Of Material. DESCRIPTION: This is remastered version from https://sourceforge.net/projects/lddpartslist/ . I repair some bugs, add preview and update XML documents. So: partnames.xml knows 8700+ official LEGO elements. There are still mysterious parts that are waiting to be discovered. xml2html.xsl and xml2txt.xsl they are responsible for the content and appearance. If you familiar with XML style sheet transformation. You are welcome to modify them to you wish.
  8. Hey Guys, i´m sitting here checking my LDD Parts List of a MOC and wondering what i need and what i might already have from a Set. Is there an easy and Time effective Way to compare the Parts Inventory of a certain Set and the Parts Inventory of a LDD designed MOC to se which Parts the et already contains and which Parts i still need to Order? Like when a Set contains 5 white 2x2 rounded Slopes and the LDD Design contains 10 of the same Piece so that i know i only need to order 5 more from Bricklink or where ever. I hope my Objective is not too confusing.
  9. Hi, I have always wondered if this part is compatible with lego technic pin holes. I have a MOC situation where I need to have an axle thru-hole which also can be meshed with the pinholes of two beams which are 1L apart. I could use the new technic connector pinhole with 1L axle on opposite sides, placed sideways with a 3L pin connecting the beams but the connectors axles are too short, hence the need for an axle thru-hole. Can the sides of part 24122 be placed inside of pinholes? even if it means having to twist it in due to it being a tight fit. axle joiners or #2 connectors are too long also. Regards, snipe.
  10. I have lost a collection due to flooding. The background information can be found here - The issue I am having is with pricing. I know I am selling as bulk but this is really bulk sets and not bulk parts. I need to know where I should set the reserve price. I am thinking of around .08 per piece. Below is a list of my sets. I will ship overseas but it will be expensive. I shipped one set to my nephew in Sweden and it was $75... This is not going to be easy but it is a great opprotunity for a collector and a great parts hoard for the MOC builder.

    Purism

    I notice there is less resistance against using non-Lego solutions in this board than in the past. In a recent topic about pulleys for a crane, http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/150151-heavy-lift-crane-boom-pulley-design-will-pay-for-ip/, at least three different people suggest modding pulleys by changing the axle hole, while the same problem can be easily solved by putting the wheels on a bar instead of an axle. In a recent topic about turntables, http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/149965-alternative-turntables/, the first suggestions are to use AFOL custom part designs. This is suggested before anyone even thinks about how this can be done in Lego. In http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/148319-little-8865-my-tribute-to-40-years-of-technic, someone built a miniature verson of 8865 using only the springs from the shock absorber parts and the first 20 replies made no mention of that specific point. (What speaks in favor of the builder though, is that he provided an alternative solution using rubber bands.) I thought this was a forum about Lego, where people use Lego pieces to solve problems, without "cheating". I remembered the days where if you used a modified piece your MOC wasn't even considered a Lego model by many people. Nowadays, there's hardly mention on this and it sometimes feels that I'm the only person here that still cares, that can't appreciate a model if the builder copped out somewhere. My rule still is, If you can't do it in Lego, then you can't do it. And a model that doesn't do it is better to me than a model that does it by cheating. After all, if you're allowing A, then why not allow B, and then C, all the way to Z and if that happens, what are we even doing? I understand 3D printing has something to do with it, but isn't the whole sport that you have a limited set of pieces that you'll have to do with, and that that means that some things can't be done? Isn't that the whole idea? I mean, if everything can be done, where's the achievement in doing it? Having done my bit of a rant, I am curious to see how others are seeing this. Have others also noticed a trend over the years? What are your opinions on it? What are your opinions on purism vs. using non-Lego solutions? Do you use non-Lego, and if so, why? What's OK to you and what's not, and why? Custom string? Custom stickers/prints? Custom tyres? Custom coloring? Custom springs? Can you define a limit that makes clear what's within and what's outside? If it's not clear, how do you handle the gray area? If you're an extensive user of non-Lego solutions, why are you into Lego instead of scale modeling in general? What are your opinions about all this?
  12. I was wondering if it is possible to make custom technic pieces out of acrylic or something? For example, buying a sheet of acrylic the same thickness as a lego technic and then drilling the appropriate holes in it?
  13. EDIT: I just renamed this thread as it evolves into a wave of primitives and patterns that all take part of something I would like to refer to as The LEGO Molecular System, with LEGO parts being the 'elements', the primitive compounds being the 'molecules' and the generated (potentially) infinite patterns being 'matter'. Of course these LEGO molecules may represent real molecular counterparts, but they don't need to. It's The LEGO Molecular System ! I've been intrigued by infinite patterns for whole my life and was looking for the smallest Technic primitive to create an infinite recurring pattern that is the same in all 3 dimensions. This is the smallest I could come up with: It generates this pattern: What is the smallest primitive that can generate an infinite recurring pattern that is the same in all 3 dimensions? LXF-file here.
  14. So I don't know if this topic has been done yet but I am just going to do it anyways , I hope to start a discussion about fake lego minifigures especially and maybe the quality of their bricks So I probably won't post any pictures simply because I don't have any fake lego, but would like to say a few things that I know about it at least... I purchase most of my LEGO off of eBay, especially the hundreds of clone figures to put into my army, but recently have noticed these wierd Chinese counterpart copy of these clone figures appearing all over when I search for REAL Lego. You can easily tell the difference from the fake just because how bad it looks, but it is sad to see that many companies try to pass these as real Lego figures... I have not purchased any of these and do not plan on it, just seeing these figures in collections looks off and awkward, and supporting those companies is not something I wish to do when I don't like what they're doing. The parts is a another story. I have several sets of GOOD QUALITY USA made offbrand that actually works quite well with Lego. These look like Lego, and is more difficult to tell the difference than that of the figures. So does anyone own any of these figures? What are your thoughts on the quality and how they compare with LEGO? Maybe even a side by side figure comparison in a picture would help. Again it will be my look that this gets merged. So please don't merge if you don't have to... thanks, just wanted to potentially hear a couple thoughts.

    RC set/parts advice

    Hello everyone, bare with me as this is my first post and my make some newb no-no's I've been looking to order a set online with future hopes to install a Sbrick and have some fun with the kids. Now, i can't decide what to order...if i order anything at all. Was looking at Aliexpress and can't decide what to get. i want a good decent set that offers most of what i'm looking for in a bundle. Keeping in mind, most of the outdoor area here is either bumpy, grassy or parking lot. - maybe looking for racer, possibly F1. but i see that getting stuck a lot around here except the parking lot. - WHEELS and SUSPENSION ;) family are mechanics, this is the only way i get to keep my hands clean ;) - parts gearbox, 4wd... - was planning to get SBRICK, motor advice? With that being said, i'm thinking of a crawler/buggy type..... long suspension, big wheels, room for motors..... able to "take a beaiting" Any suggestions, I thinking along the lines of the 3335 or 3360?

    New parts wishlist

    I would like the Mixels balljoint cup 1x2 plates, but with the cup rotated 90 degrees for greater movement freedom. I could also use 1x2 plate Mixels balljoint cup with the cup on top like 11458 and one with cup on bottom like 24201 or 18677. Mixel cup one end, jumbo cup other end. Mixel ball one end, jumbo ball other end. I would also like a 1x2 plate (or more) with studs on top and bottom (no clutch side). What would you more experienced Lego builders want?

    LEGO Colour Questions

    Hey there! Couldn't find any suitable thread so I thought I'd start one What's the purpose? Finding and gathering information about colours which have been used by Lego and for LEGO pieces. To start it off, I have quite a simple question: I have the chance to get my hands on Set 7047. I was wondering if the colour used for the water on the included baseplate is matching normal 32x32 baseplates in Blue?
  18. Hello! Recently I've come across this video (which got me really hyped BTW). In the description the author states he got the models from MLCad and modified them to be low poly. I tried downloading MLCad, but the link to the parts database seems to be broken. If I got it right, MLCad uses the parts database of another program (LDraw if I recall correctly). I want to get the models, I don't care if they are from MLCad or from another program. I'd like to use them to make some animations with the Toa Mata. Can anyone help? Thanks :)
  19. Finally, after a long hiatus there's a new official LDraw parts update. Here's the full 'press release':
  20. hi everyone in this topic I'll show my collection of trains to start, a moc I made using pieces I had laying around
  21. Hi, I've been looking to buy parts for the 2015 SDCC Action Comics #1 set. Upon my research I've noticed that the part with Design Number 98281 (Green Wedge 6 x 4 x 2/3 Quad Curved) only appears in this set. How is it possible that a part is a convention exclusive? And will it ever be released in a widely available set? It's baffling to me that TLG would do this.

    Rare Parts Shop?

    Does anyone know of a good brick link store that sells rare pieces? Like anything that is not common, even prototypes and pre production parts. Thanks
  23. Hello, Having played extensively with LEGO Technic as a youth (I still have the original 853 Car Chassis Technical set), I now find myself playing with LEGO Technic with my son! I am a vehicle design engineer by trade and this combined with the time spent playing with LEGO Technic resulted in an idea for a new Technic compatible part. After this idea had knocked around in my mind for some time and refused to go away, I decided to design in properly using 3D CAD and present it to the Lego Group to see what they thought. I put together the following video and sent it by e-mail to the LEGO Group several months ago, but I have had no success in getting them to take an interest in the proposal: My design cannot be submitted through the LEGO Ideas web site, because new part designs are specifically excluded. However if I can get to at least 10,000 views on YouTube (the LEGO Ideas review threshold), I think LEGO Group may be prepared to give serious consideration to producing these new parts. If you like the idea please help by sharing this video on social media, in forums and with friends. Thank you for your help.

    Help for yellow bar #6139483

    Help in the Lego set 60110 Fire station there is a long yellow bar, like auger, designated in the building instructions as #6139483, but it does not exist in any database as official part, or I am missing something? If someone has some more information, please :) Thanks.
  25. A new LDraw.org parts update (2015-02) just has been released: Happy New Year 2016! Steffen
