Technic 854 Go Kart - Stefan Frenz - 2019-11-05

Hi there,

this is my third OMR-model: 854 Go Kart of 1978.

Known issues:
- The hoses are not symmetrical.
- The steering universal joint does not fit exactly.
- The sticker "9" across multiple bricks is missing.

Thank you Philippe and Johann for the feedback to my other two models - I hope this file is nearly OMR compliant already.

Any feedback is welcome, thank you very much. Smile

Edit: changed wheel color from brick-black to rubber-black as suggested for the 8845 by Philippe.

Regards
Stefan

Fixed hoses and added sticker, so only steering universal joint remains as issue.

Proposed steering universal joint soluce (solved with geogebra)  Big Grin
Remains issues easy to solve : Gap between rear wheels, main position of the model (front and rear wheel not at the same level, front rear not on the floor at rendering)

I wonder why the sticker appears transparent in that image, when it's not actually?

And does LDCad's universal joint helper tool do any good for the steering joint? (I didn't spot the issue myself, but I didn't look terribly closely.)

I think that's a rendering artifact. Based on how LDView works (even though I think this picture came from LDCad), I know that edge lines need to be pulled toward the camera when they are drawn, or they won't show up properly. I suspect that the edge lines have been pulled forward a little too much, and it is causing them to bleed through the opaque sticker.

Me too - the lines sometimes show up and sometimes don't depending on camera angle and zoom. But I have done only few stickers, and this one is the first with non-rectangular outline. Perhaps I did something wrong while following the howto...?

Hi Marc,

thanks for your feedback and the proposal. In the real model there is some tolerance, and I didn't know where to "play" it... The angles for the model were constructed with QCad. Wink
The rear wheel gaps are removed now, and yes, the front wheels are not on the same level as the rear wheels. Hum, I just like the main parts being not inclined, so would it be preferred to rotate the main model in the only step of the main sub file? There are always rounding errors I really dislike...

Best regards
Stefan

When the whole model is tilted, I put it untilted in a submodel, and tilt that submodel in main model.

Yes, it occurs whenever edge lines are "too close" of external surface. Sometimes it can even be seen on regular parts when unzoomed enough, see for example this panel preview: https://www.ldraw.org/parts/official-part-lookup.html?folder=parts&partid=62531

Thank you, done. Smile  

Additionally I rotated the steering axle some more (~1.923077°), so the Universal Joint is ok and the tolerance is taken between axle and 1x2 brick.
