    [MOC] Cliffside Villa

    Well, after a long period of not doing much besides the giant Eleitian Central Command model, I present to you my newest model, The Cliffside Villa! The idea came about last Sunday, I was procrastinating on doing stuff I was supposed to, as one does. I decided to expand on the bridge, which I had been building as a standalone concept but couldn't figure out what to do with. I was going to build a fairytale castle on the cliffs that I eventually made behind the bridge, but then it morphed into an entirely different building altogether! The porches, stained glass window, and other elements of the actual pavilion came about next, after I'd laid the groundwork (literally) in the form of the cliffs. I then decided to make it into a combination of my previous Temple of the Moon Maiden MOC and something more open to interpretation. So it could be used, (it sits on a baseplate totaling 32 x 48) as an addition to a modular city! Perhaps a large city park with a pavilion, or some form of garden! From my official description: It's a fine spring day at the Cliffside Villa! The Moon Priest contemplates the deep questions of life on the porch, while his daughter strolls the elegantly appointed walkways of the garden. Two guards stand sentry by the staircase, protecting the inhabitants of the Villa from harm. Explore all the secret nooks and crannies of this large set, from the bell tower to the fish pond to the stained glass window behind which the statue of the Moon Maiden is placed! Set features: - 2568 Pieces - 7 Minifigures: The Moon Priest, Moon Priest's Daughter, Statue of the Moon Maiden, (2) Garden Statues, (2) Guards - Villa features a large stained glass window, metallic Statue of the Moon Maiden on a raised pedestal, and two spacious porches. Upper story features a movable bell! - Elegant bridge crosses a large frog pond filled with lily pads and other aquatic plants. See if you can spot the frogs hiding down there! - Statuary adorns the garden, which is built onto the cliffs with beautiful brick-built birch and cherry trees in full bloom. - Relax on the small bench set below one of the statues! - Features multiple unique pieces, such as the Ornamental gold fish adorning the roof, the Moon Priest's staff, and much more! - Spacious basement level beneath the Villa is perfect for placing hidden treasure or whatever you need for added suspense! But don't just follow that one story for this model, use your imagination to make it your own! This model, on baseplates totaling 32 x 48, can be placed as a standalone model or a complementary model for your modular city! Use it as a pavilion, a city park, or a historical monument in your LEGO town. This MOC is now on LEGO Ideas! If you want to, please help support it, I'd love for it to be one of the lucky few that makes it! The Cliffside Villa: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/4bfda07a-beb1-440e-bcfe-d9742e9d3746 Feel free to leave any comments below, and keep on building, everyone! :)

    [MOC] Lion Pub

    Hi everyone I'm new here in the forum and like to share my first MOC which I have been working on over the last 3 months. I build the MOC with BrickLink Studio 2.0 and used the new Eyesight Render for my images. I love the modular building sets from Lego but I missed the detail level on the upper floors. According to this I decide to design and build a more detailed modular building with more minifigures than the regular ones from lego. This building represents a classic British pub with a lot of typical details like a British cab, a London phone box, a classical English pub facade with a lot of flowers and much more. The modular style building with 3 floors and an accessible roof is built on a 32x32 base plate and contains 32 minifigures and approximately 6000 parts. Level 1 - Bar The first floor contains the main bar area of the pub and small full-featured restroom with toilet, urinal and lavatory. Outside there are bar tables and a red phone box. Minifigures Craftsman enjoying his after-work beer Bobby (Police Officer) on patrol Barkeeper and owner of the Lion Pub Regular guest who enjoys his retirement Best friends enjoy their free evening Level 2 – Gambling room The second floor features a gambling room complete with a pool table, poker corner and dart board. There is also a balcony on the back side to the backyard. Minifigures Young couple play a game of pool Office worker playing a game of darts Student can't keep his hands off gambling Housewife practices her passion at the poker table Professional poker player Level 3 – Live Music The third floor features a stage for live music, a small bar and a second full-featured restroom. Minifigures Punk who also loves Rock'n'Roll Aging hippie Piano player Elvis imitator and musician Groupie Barmaid Businessman enjoys a cool pint Champagne connoisseur and music lover Level 4 – Rooftop Party The last level offers space for a roof top party with a sitting corner under the overgrown pergola, bar tables, barbecue and DJ. Minifigures Man enjoying the delicious Hotdogs Barbecue chef Security DJane Female dancer Boyfriend of the female dancer Bestfriends start the evening with prosecco Celebrity couple Cab / Taxi Last but not least, the MOC offers a Classic London Cab heavily influenced by the "TFL Classic London Cab Taxi" from bamsham363 Minifigures Businessman treats himself to a pint Taxi driver Thanks very much for reading and I hope you like my first MOC. There are more pictures on Bricksafe and feel free to support my MOC on Rebrickable and let me know what you think. At the moment I am building my MOC with real Lego bricks. As soon as possible I will post any photos of the real lego building.
  3. Hi, In theory, should be coming a new update for LDD, no?? Someone knows something about that?
  4. I thought a model of the SBrick would be useful for anyone who would want to use this model for creating instructions, as this part is used by many in the Technic community. One of the reasons I created this is I currently like using digital software to design the internal layout of some of my models to see how larger PF components fit within my desired scale constraints. So I created a model in Autodesk Fusion 360 from measurements of the SBrick, I then went through a couple steps to exporting from the STL file from Fusion 360 to an OBJ for Stud.io's Part Designer with Blender. This tool works well, and I definitely see it being useful for other custom 3D printed parts in the future. I will see about getting other Power functions parts into stud.io in the future, as there is an option to import ldraw parts. I could also see about getting this part published in Stud.io's part library, however since it isn't an offical Lego part, I am not sure how possible that would be, but Bricklink also supports selling of 3rd party parts, so maybe if there was enough of a demand for this it could happen. SBrick part file for Stud.io You will need Part Designer to add the part to your custom parts library in Stud.io Part recreated in CAD A quick render of the SBrick in Stud.io, unfortunately the part designer lacks the functionality to assign different materials to parts. Unless I wanted to use decals, but I originally thought I could UV map a material to it, however that didn't work. also there is some minor mesh artifacts that are visible in the view port, but don't appear to show up in the renders, these are flat surfaces, maybe converting to ngons would fix that issue. Showing the functionality of snapping parts to the SBrick.
  5. I'm planning on building a cargo trailer for the upcoming Land Rover Defender! Next, I might plan on building the drawbar.
  6. I've been following several builders in the micro-space genre and love seeing what they come up with. I've also really enjoyed watching Shiptember come together every year on Flikr and often wondered if I could design something worthy of that contest/forum. With all that being said, I've started a new design and I'm taking a bow to stern build and would love to get comments as I build my way through this. I don't really have a back story of the ship or an end result in mind. I just want to play with shapes and other techniques to see if I can build something interesting.

  7. Belus was a series of experimental locomotives within the dystopian apocalyptic fictional universe of The Final Station. There was only 8 locomotives in total, with the series discontinued after the main project supervisor went missing and the project team going bankrupt, ceasing production and maintenance of the Belus locomotives whatsoever. According to the game wiki the train's wheel arrangement is supposed to be 6-2-0 (I am not versed in train wheel patterns), but I depicted only the four that show up in the gaps between the plating. EDIT: Yesterday before sleep I've tried to make the Belus to actually have three pairs of smaller wheels, as is suggested by the info from the wiki. I think it looks much better, even though not much have changed on the surface: Here's what lies under the plating though: Here's the train's in-game appearance: As you can see, I had to work with a design that was ever represented only in a side-view, so it was a challenge to turn it into a 3D and pick a good width. In the end, I am glad that I even managed to more-or-less adjust the wheels to stand on the standard LEGO train tracks. All in all, it was a fun build that I wanted to tackle for a while! Also, please do check out the game, it's gorgeous and has a really good atmosphere! The model is made in Lego Digital Designer and adjusted in Stud.Io. The decals were applied via Stud.Io Part Designer. Here's a turnaround animation: https://i.gyazo.com/c860b0e9068f664dd29f8a4cdb9dce3f.gif

    [MOC] Terran Marine (StarCraft)

    PSA: this model features a number of custom parts made with Stud.Io Part Designer. They do not exist in real life, and were made as a proof of concept for this particular model.
  9. I compared the different LEGO rendering engines available through LDD, Bluerender and Stud.io. Have a look at the results:
  10. Hello guys , I desperately need a stud.io expert's help : I am doing builds for Star Wars factions using LDD and stud.io and I've stumbled upon some roadblocks in my use of Stud.io. Namely : 1) I cannot find any way to make parts that are supposed to be dual-molded be two different colors. For example I want a minifig's legs to be tan in their upper area , with dark bluish grey as the "boots"/lower part. Another example is a doctor who sonic screwdriver - I want the "body" to be pearl grey but the "light bulb" on top to be a trans green or trans blue . Is there any way , direct or indirect , to achieve that ? 2) What I also looked for , but could not find , was a way to use my own custom decals on , say a minifig torso . Is there any way of accessing the decoration/decal database of the programm and adding my own / replacing an existing one with my own ? If this has been answered / covered elsewhere , feel free to lock / delete the topic and point me to the right direction. Thanks in advance to anyone kind enough to help.

    Hello from Massachusetts!

    Hello, I'm new to this community, but have been building Lego my whole life. My favorite themes when I was growing up in the late 80's and early 90's were Castle and Pirates. In recent years, my favorites are the Star Wars UCS sets, though I'm especially impressed with some of the MOC's both of Star Wars and in general. I first found this forum when I was wondering why Lego hasn't done a set for the Star Wars Nebulon-B Medical Frigate from the Rebel flleet. A google search turned up the absolutely AMAZING MOC of the Nebulon-B by Mortesv, and as I read more about that I of course found a thread or two talking about it in this forum. Over the last few years I've become very impressed with the online tools we have thanks mostly to the ingenuity of the Lego community. Most people, even probably a lot of people that have Lego or buy sets for their kids, have no idea that sites like Bricklink, Brickset, and Rebrickable, exist. The sheer number of online store fronts on Bricklink, and the enormity of how many individual parts there are just boggles my mind. The amount of data that Brickset can tell me about my collection is fascinating. I am now trying to learn about the Lego design software that until a week ago I wasn't aware existed. It seems like Lego Digital Designer is kind of broken and not supported by Lego, yet it seems like folks are still using it? What about Stud.io? Is that more or as popular? Or is there other software besides those? I feel like I am just scratching the surface of the new things I want to learn about - and this forum seems like a great place to figure it all out! Looking forward to participating in this community, almost as much as I am for my two year old getting old enough to graduate from Duplos into Lego!

    [MOC] Lake Forest College - Young Hall 1:350

    I present to you the main academic building at Lake Forest College, in Lake Forest, IL, USA, built and rendered with stud.io Building this in 1:350 scale was tough because it's hard to capture all the shapes and details at such a small size. I used bricks in existing colors in hopes of one day physically building it, and also incorporated very complicated techniques that I never knew I could even attempt. The inside is a mess of supporting the outside, and I made sure it is stable enough but in digital form, who really knows? All things considered, I'm very proud of this, and looks just like the real thing. There are more shots in the flickr gallery and I can make more on request.
  13. Hi I'm new. I'm working on some recolor/modifications to the official A-Wing (75150) and the T70 X-Wing (75149) designs. I started off using Stud.io Beta to recolor the 75150 and 75149 that I found in the LDD gallery, and that quickly evolved into some subtle modifications. What you think? Are many people on here using Stud.io? I'm finding it much more intuitive and stable than LDD. -AZiltz T-72 X-wing rev2
  14. Hello all, I'm a beginner in rendering LEGO models in a mac OS system. I discovered that Stud.io makes its renderings using POV-ray (a software for rendering) and that you can export .pov files for render externally in the POV-ray software itself. The POV-ray 3.7 has not graphical user interface (GUI) for mac OS X, and can only be executed in the command line. The render is controlled in a text file with the .pov extension. I installed POV-ray 3.7 with the sotware mac ports: [ The command is: sudo port install povray @3.7.0.0_2 ] Then I modified the file /opt/local/etc/povray/3.7/povray.ini adding the path to the LGEO libraries, which were already installed by Stud.io. Library_Path="/Applications/Stud.io/povray/LGEO" Library_Path="/Applications/Stud.io/povray/LGEO/lg" Library_Path="/Applications/Stud.io/povray/LGEO/ar" Also modifying the Width and Height parameters. Then in the mac terminal I ran: povray Nova_AlexandriaFrontal_10.pov The result is similar to what I have obtained in Stud.io renderings. Now I want to improve the renderings learning to use POV-ray. First step learning about lights. Which I will update in this post. Any advice will be greatly appreciated, which will be included here. Solution Update: .pov files exported from Stud.io give me some trouble, so instead, from stud.io I export a .ldr file, which then I open in LDView, and from there I exported the .pov file. This also allow me to select the perspective of the model, and automatically translated to the .pov file (Which I could not do it in Stud.io). At first time the .pov file exported from LDView has mismatch colors, that was fixed updating the file /Applications/LDView.app/Contents/Resources/LGEO.xml. NOTE: I will eliminate this topic to create a new one with the focus on mac OS related issues of POV-Ray Rendering. Working with a iMac 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5, 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB.
  15. 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)
  16. Hey all, I organised an LDD contest on my youtube channel and I've received some designs in LDD and Stud.io format. The ones from LDD (*.LXF) can be opened in Stud.io, but not the other way around. The winning design is a Stud.io file. I've uploaded it to a Bricklink Baseplate but I can't find anywhere how to generate a building guide. I can click "step view", but it doesn't do anything (the desing appears to have 2 steps with all the changes in the first step). Is this where the building guide should be?? 1. Is there a way to generate a building guide in Stud.io, if so how? 2. If I can convert the Stud.io file into an LDD file, I could open it in LDD and use the Buidling Guide view mode but it seems this is not possible? Do you have encountered this problem? I really need a solution, since the design has over 1500 parts I hope you can help me out!

    Paducah GP10 Locomotive

    Starting on a personal project. I've never built a LEGO Train before so I'm basing my boggies and trucks on the LEGO set 60052 and will start to build from there. My hope is to build a model of the Paducah GP10 locomotive that was built in my fathers home town of Paducah KY. http://www.railpictures.net/photo/612127/ Illinois Central Paducah Built G10 Locomotive #5 by Benjamin Sarles, on Flickr
  18. This is a design I've been working on for that last year or so. I meant to have it built for the 2016 Brickfair Virginia but wasn't able to quite pull it all together in time. So I brought it out for this years Brickfair. I originally designed the building the Lego Digital Design (LDD) software. I had the design even built. Once I switched my primary software to bricklink;s Stud.io I tested out the rendering package in Stud.io on this build and it sold me on the switch to the software package. I started to evaluate the design a bit further for this years Brickfair and wanted to add some lighting which cause me to really work through some redesign efforts in the roof and foundation pieces. the final design from Stud.io ended up looking like this. Now it was time to build and light. I am really happy our this all came out.

    MOC- WIP Pusher Sea Plane

    I've been working on this, today. Trying to come up with an interesting pusher plane design that has influences back to World War II. This first picture is from from where I was blocking in the hull of the design. This shows a bit more design work with the addition of a different windscreen as well as the support pylons for the wings to the man fuselage. I'm still thinking of whether or not to add wing tip pontoons. Feel free to add any comments you have for additions to this design.
  20. Drawing cylinders in Stud.io seems to be easier than in other software due to the ease of using their hinge tool and how it interacts with connected pieces. The attached folder has some basic instructions and a straight wall ready to turn into a cylinder, a completed example and one of my modified cylinders. Included is a pdf with a table of angles necessary to use in the hinge settings to get a perfect circle of varying diameters. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/fqxsw8vfzmrymwy/AAA__P_LbXweHJredEq4q81va?dl=0
  21. I decided to rework my baseball field to a different scale. I was having a hard time fitting that stadium on the Micropolis Standard so I think I will go a bit bigger but it still will be Micro as to try and keep the part budget somewhat achievable. The park will also not be a major league field but hopefully NCAA or MiLB A/AA size. This is still a WIP and would love to get feedback.
  22. I'm working on at Micropolis Baseball park. I want to see if I can get a three tiered stadium on this and add an interesting design of the ball park. Ball Park Study Size 1 by Benjamin Sarles, on Flickr Ball Park Study Size 1_Progress by Benjamin Sarles, on Flickr
  23. I'm working on a design a week in the micropolis scale and hopefully I will be able to pick one or two models to display this year at Brickfair VA. Please feel free to comment or suggests edits on the designs as I want to put my best foot forward since this will be my first time displaying at a show. This week I wanted to incorporate the rounds along the top edge of this building and I like the look of the "Wraps" along the front columns and over the roof. I'm not sure about keeping the poles in the back but I didn't have time to really work on that area this weekend. I like building at this scale because it's not a part's hog and it gives a newer builder more exposure to building techniques with out having the entire build designed around that technique. Again please feel free to comment on areas where I can improve. Micropolis Tower _White by BSarles, on Flickr
  24. This is a new building that I'm working on but I haven't picked what direction I want to go on the colors. I'm hoping to have the design finalized and bricks ordered in time for BrickFair VA 2017. I think I'm about 90% done with the building itself. I have the roof detailing to complete, plus adding more detail work but want to put this out there for comment. I have two working color schemes I'm looking at and would love to hear feedback on which one to go with. Option 1 Office Tower by BSarles, on Flickr Option 2 Office Tower (2nd Color) by BSarles, on Flickr The design is created in Bricklink's design tool called Stud.io . There is a lot I am liking about this software over LDD. Maybe I might write a post about another time.
  25. I have a problem with building in Stud.io - every time I try to build or import, all the bricks are transparent: Does anyone know why this is happening?
