45706 - Trainfront - Gerald Lasser - 2020-02-28

After figuring out today how to properly command Pathtruder to do what I want, I started a part I needed a long time ago.

This must have been available as a LDraw file somewhere, as this front was part of the Train-Poster. However, I could not locate it.

So here I start:

Good news! Useful tool, but soooo tricky Wink . Standalone tool or through LDPE? (was never able to figure the use of LDPE version)

Indeed tricky! I did "some" iterations. I used the LDPE version, though I really want to compare the results of both (which I did not do yet)
What puzzled me, was the y-divergence. I had both start and end-points at the same (whole LDU) level.

Somehow gravity kicked in and the vertices generated along the given points were sagging and I moved them up manually. I'll post a separate thread for this.

Working on Dots wristband and gem parts!


RE: Parts we are Working on - Part Deux - Rainbow Tiles - Gerald Lasser - 2020-03-25

The Rainbow tiles are certified and there is one more that fits into this pattern, it is the 2 x 2 macaroni tile coming with the colourful Panda. 27925.

I tried to fitting the pattern with primitives, that worked out only in such a way that I had to use 2 Ring primitives for each colour.

When doing so, there is a slight misalignment of the colours by 0.4 LDU, which is barely noticeable (at least I tell myself)

What do you think?

PS: I think LDView PrimSubstitution is not working on prims that use "RING" AND anything larger than "9", see also in the pitcure what RING12 does (all others are called RIN1x)

 Can't see that causing any problem on your image! Have you posted the part somewhere?

Yeah, should be reported to Travis...

Otherwise, looks good. I would use a 1-4tang primitive on inside for substitution (and possibly some thin chrds on the outside)


RE: Parts we are Working on - Dimensions RFID Bricks - Gerald Lasser - 2020-04-03

The main parts are already on the PT, I changed (not uploaded) 18602 and 18605 as the innards are different.

Concerning the parts itself, I am the opinion that the origin is wrong, as the studs are not at y=0

I also made the RFID/NFC tag and before I upload it I want to get your opinion:

- The foil is pretty thin, to right now I modeled it as 0,2 LDU
- The foil is nearly transparent, so doing it colour 47 would be OK in the shortcuts
- The circuitry i.e. the antenna I did as if it would be a print, with colour 80 (Metallic Silver)

concerning the numbering, 18604 would fit in nicely, but I will ask Chris for a code.
