Coal Fired Bricks posted a topic in LEGO Train TechHello Trainheads. I have been thinking about making parts for TLG trains for a long time. Ever since the lookdown started I really got into the idea more and in my head, it gained a lot of traction. I introduce New England BrickWorks NOTE*** Still in development phase looking for feedback**** I have had a lot of time to think these days, getting my degree in mechanical engineering hasn't been eating up as much of my time. And I believe I have developed a new manufacturing method that will create parts with injection-molded quality with a slightly different material than plastic(very close strength-wise) for a fraction of the cost. If I did my math correct I may be able to develop new products for little cost and the overhead will be low. I will be looking to sell circles of r104 at about $60. Here are some future product ideas r56 r72 r88 r104 r120 r136+ Side rods Drivers r104 switches r120 switches r40 switches narrow gauge stuff r56 -136 rails only (me models like) Unpainted products(if you want light gray ballast and dark grey rails) Other(post bellow) ***Please I beg you can you post if you want any of these products and give me feedback**** ****Please fellow trainheads take this survey so I can easily see your responses(only takes one min)**** Still don't know if I want to do this, may start a KickStarter once I see feedback and do some designs Take the survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7ZC2YPK Bye Bye Everybody -Coal Fired PS I still aren't sure about this endeavor I will decide if I want to do this after I see the responses to the survey and to the form.
Attention, fellow LEGO Digital Designer users! Are you annoyed by how long it takes to get past LDD's welcome screen? Do you wish there was an easy way to skip the welcome screen every time you start up LDD? Well, I have a solution for you! First of all, either create a blank LXF file, or download mine. After that, it's as simple as opening that file instead of launching LDD from a normal desktop shortcut! (EDIT: Don't forget to set the "Read-only" attribute in the file's properties to prevent it from being overwritten!) But wait! I even came up with a method to launch LDD like that from the taskbar in Windows 7 and 8 (if you have it pinned there) while keeping the Jump List intact! Starting with an ordinary shortcut to LDD pinned to the taskbar, hold down Shift and right-click the shortcut. Then, left-click on "Properties" in the pop-up menu. Next, clear the "Target:" field on the Shortcut tab, then enter the location of the blank LXF file. Make sure to put double quote marks before and after the location. Example: "C:\Users\[insert your user name here]\Documents\LEGO Creations\Models\blank.lxf" Once you've entered the location of the blank LXF file, click OK. From now on, whenever you launch LDD from the taskbar, you'll go straight to the blank LXF file rather than the welcome screen. What if you're running Windows 8, and want to pin LDD to the Start screen? For that, I recommend Pin to 8, which will allow you to pin any file to the Start screen or taskbar in Windows 8. (Watch out for any fake download advertisements on that page! If you move your mouse cursor over a button and its URL contains "googleads," it's not the link you're looking for!) Happy virtual building! -Toa Of Justice EDIT: Here's yet another way to bypass LDD's welcome screen, courtesy of fgiorgi. With this method, there's no need to mess with shortcuts to LDD or blank files!
