  Interesting build technique in Voltron set
Posted by: Travis Cobbs - 2018-08-01, 5:33 - Forum: Off-Topic - Replies (7)

Take a look at step 45 here:

[Image: z9gjs7Q.jpg]

Notice in particular the use of two red 1x2 plates underneath the 2x2 plate, instead of simply stacking two 2x2 plates on top of each other. As far as I can tell, this is done because there are only two studs underneath, and the 1x2 plate has more grip than half a 2x2 plate. I don't think I've seen that done in any official LEGO sets that I have put together in the past.

The grip above the 1x2 plate (onto the underside of the 2x2 plate) would be the same as if two 2x2 plates were stacked, but I think the presence of the second 1x2 plate, and the fact that that is up a bit higher, makes it so that the whole bit that is added in step 45 is less likely to come off.

Do you think that is why it's built this way?

  Naming convention: Trophy
Posted by: Willy Tschager - 2018-07-29, 19:39 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (3)


I'm gonna submit:


And I'd like to get some input on the naming. BL currently lists:


where 89801 is already an official and 72092 is on the PT. I like Santeri's "Minifig Trophy Cup  5L" naming scheme a lot and would like to know your opinion about. Obviously this would require a renaming of 89801. (The only problem I could see is that I have forgotten how we measure the "L" and more embarrassing - there is no documentation on our site).

  Motor animation
Posted by: NEMOOZ - 2018-07-29, 19:04 - Forum: Rendering Techniques - Replies (3)

Hi everyone,
I am wondering how is it possible to animate motor in LDCad?
I found great LDCAD animation on youtube :

I found Scripting API on Melkert website 

Here the model:
[Image: Motor_animation_view.png]

I am able to rotate the camshaft with this script:

--[[Sripted by Co for NEMOOZ]]
function register()

-- "Dissolve" script makes parts disappear progressively from the model ("Build" inverse)
    local ani=ldc.animation('Motor')

   --Set the length of the animation in seconds
   ani:setEvent('start', 'motorStart')
   ani:setEvent('frame', 'motorFrame')

function motorStart()

function motorFrame()

   local ani=ldc.animation.getCurrent()
   local ori=ldc.matrix()
   local angle=1800*ani:getFrameTime()/ani:getLength()
   local ax1=mainSf:getRef('axe_motor.ldr')
   ori:setRotate(angle, 1, 0, 0)


I searched the forums and found nothing on that particular subject.

  Models referenced by file path - Who is Willy?
Posted by: Alexander U. - 2018-07-26, 5:51 - Forum: General LDraw.org Discussion - Replies (2)

I have installed the optional LEGO Model LDraw files.

This is how the Fort Legoredo looks like: https://i.imgur.com/m9RkjRE.png

Certain Technic models (e.g. 42039) look even worse.

The issue seems to be caused by model references that do not resolve to a file; one of the paths is shown in the tooltip.

So: Who is Willy? Big Grin

  Brick, Arch 1 x 3 x 3 #13965 aka the Bond Aston Fenders
Posted by: Ryan Hicks - 2018-07-21, 21:55 - Forum: Part Requests - Replies (2)

Hey hey Ldraw... I had a quick look and seems this one's not come up in the requests forum or already been done in the parts catalog:

Brick Arch, 1 x 3 x 3 : Bricklink link
[Image: 13965.png]

Recently used as the fender arches on the Creator Expert James Bond Aston Martin DB5 and last year's London bus. Will certainly be useful for other Creator-scale vehicles. 

Much appreciated, cheers.
