42039 24 Hour Race Car - SBrick, Power Functions

Re: 42039 24 Hour Race Car - SBrick, Power Functions
Excellent! I searched and searched with no success. Many thanks - I'll update the model later on.

Indeed, I did try to start with your stock 42039 model but I quickly ran into trouble using it for my objectives:

1. Highlight the parts and steps to motorize the model
2. Generate instructions highlighting the LPub modifications I'm working on - notably step-fading and ROTSTEP placement via an integrated LeoCAD 3D Viewer.

In the end, I ended up reconfiguring most of the stock mpd - you can take a look via the download.

I had alot of trouble with the front shock springs being repositioned by LPub and LeoCad. Especially since I wanted to use "dat" files as parts versus "ldr" files as sub-models. In the end I ended up with 2 mpd files, one targeting LDCad (that's the one I posted) and another for generating instructions.

I used MPDCenter on the file available for download to take advantage of merging unofficial parts into the mpd and to generally standardize the content.

I'm still working throught the version for instructions - e.g. converting a PF medium motor template consisting of 2 parts and generated content into a single part so it can appear correctrly on the parts list.
