    I modified a Creator Parrot so it would look like my real pet parrot. This involved changing brick colors, and altering the shape of the head and back (see photo.) Does this count as a "real" MOC and should I upload it as such?

    Hi Bastiaan,
    The errors probably occurred because the b model submitter built it with parts on hand.  I'll work on getting the 2 inventories in sync.  
    Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

    Hi,
    I compared the inventory of set 42078 main build with it's alternative build. I found errors in the alternative build inventory (or otherwise around).
    According to my research the alternative set has zero unique parts which aren't in the main build.
    Main set:
    https://rebrickable.com/sets/42078-1/mack-anthem/#parts
    Alternative set:
    https://rebrickable.com/sets/42078-1-b1/mack-lr-garbage-truck/#parts
    Comparison:
    https://rebrickable.com/sets/compare/slow/?1-set=42078-1&1-inv=21270&1-user_list=&2-set=42078-1-b1&2-inv=23063&2-user_list=
    Here we go...
    Errors (in order of right side of the comparison page inventory):
    8x black 2905 should be black 99773.
    5x black 32269 should be black 18575 (or vice versa, should match main inventory item number)
    1x black 2431 (didn't check this one, probably with print)
    1x dark bluish gray 3022 (didn't check this one, could be black)
    1x dark bluish gray 3648b should be dark bluish gray 24505 (or vice versa, should match main inventory item number)
    1x flat silver 2412b should probably be 2412b metallic silver (or vice versa, should match main inventory item number)
    1x 14720 (Main set has 5, alternative has 6, so the comparison page shows 1x. I count 5 so this part shouldn't bementioned in the comparsion. To be clear: the alternative needs 5 instead of 6)
    1x red 4519. I cannot find this part in the manual in red. There are plenty in bluish gray.
    1x Red 33299a should be 1x Red 33299b (or vice versa, should match main inventory item number)
    4x trans-clear 3069b should be trans-black 3069b.

    I hope this will answer both of your posts.  If you are still confused, just ask and I'll try to make it more clear.
     
     
    Start by creating an "available for building" Loose Part list for each large set you will be using.  For example label one 42009, another could be Uni-mog or whatever other large set you own.  2 or 3 small sets could easily be combined into one list.
     
    Use the part out feature on the Set Home Page to put the parts from each set in the correct loose parts list.  Once you have parted out the set, you need to manually remove the set from your Set List.  Otherwise you will have a double count of the parts.
     
    Edit-After you have all the parts in the loose parts lists, you need to go to the Build tab at the top of a rebrickable page.  
    It will give you options to check off.  Check only the "my parts list" box.
    Then set the match bar to exact.
    At the bottom, click the Find Sets to Build button.
    This will give you all the sets with 100% in your loose parts list.
    Choose the one you need and click on it.
    This should bring up a page that says
     
    "You are able to build this set from your loose parts collection." There will be a link for Combine these parts.
    (end edit)
     
    When you build an MOC with the 100% combine link, you can choose the loose part list you want to start with, and the parts will be removed from that list first.  After that parts will be removed from other available part lists until the 100% is reached.  The MOC will appear in your chosen Set List. 
     
    The remaining parts from each set you parted out will be in their own loose parts list, ready to be used for other MOCs.  If you wanted to combine all these left-over parts into one list, create a Total loose parts list. Export each separate left-over list to your desktop, then go to the Total loose parts list and import each one using the APPEND button.  Once you have added them all to the Total list, be sure to delete each left-over list and all its parts so you don't have a double count.   
     
    If you wanted to put the 42009 set back together, you could part out the MOCs you built into their own loose part list, remove the MOC from your set list, and then use the "build this set" to get the 100% link for the 42009.

    Just noticed you have BL's bslot16 as corner brick with the description of 2 slots and a matching image.
    This number relates to a single slot brick at either end.
    BL's bslot17 is the corner brick with 2 slots.

    thea got a reaction from Retrieverfalcon in New inventory category - "Non-Build" ignorable parts   
    There is a setting to exclude Stickers and other gear as well as minifigure parts from the  Build Function.  You can toggle it on by going to the ME drop down menu, choose Settings and then the Building Tab.
    The Ignore Sticker category was created fairly recently.  Before that stickers were placed in the spares to keep them out of the Build Function.  We are still working on changing many stickers that use the stk in the part number, and moving them from the spare parts to the regular inventory.  The goal is to have the box total match our inventory as much as we can.  There are going to be cases where this doesn't happen because packets/sprues of small parts are listed as 1 item in the instruction book inventory.  Rebrickable lists these individually.

    thea reacted to TeagueO in How to use "BUILD SET - Find My Parts" page   
    So what you mean, you click build this and the 'source parts' page comes up right? Well for your issue perhaps don't click on 'use this set' until you have the parts you need from that set in front of you. For instance, if I need 10 parts from 31006-1, I will go collect those 10 parts, physically set them in front of me, then click 'use this set'. Now I have 10 fewer parts to find and have eliminated one set. I realize this isn't exactly what you mean, but this is how I do it and it works well (fro me).
    Since this way allows you to see which parts came from where since you stay on that page, I think it may help you until Rebrickable adds a new feature. I hope this was helpful.

    thea reacted to Simon in 3rd party parts   
    Greetings, all.
    Let me be as clear as possible: I am totally against adding non-LEGO parts to Rebrickable.
    Both  @legolijntjeand @Xfingalready stated good arguments against it, and even those in favour of it have noticed the complexities and risks involved, but I wish to make the case for newbies and occasional users.
    With all due respect, Rebrickable is not just for MOC designers. To be sure, when Nathan invented Rebrickable, his primary goal was this:
    "Rebrickable will show you which LEGO sets you can build from the sets and parts you already own." (Note the LEGO)
    And in "Who am I", Nathan states "After buying some large Technic sets, I figured it must be possible to build some of the smaller ones with the thousands of LEGO parts I had.". (Again, LEGO)
    Currently, Rebrickable has 120,865 registered users. There are 6,236 MOCs present, so at best, there are 6,268 MOC designers registered (probably a whole lot less, as some designers created dozens of  MOCs). In any case, there are, at least, 114.629 registered users who are NOT MOC designers. These people, the overwhelming 95% majority, don't care about SBricks and Chrome wheels. Even rare TLG made parts don't interest them. They want to do want Nathan wanted six years ago: to find out what they can build. Or what parts they need to buy to upgrade from one set to another. Or what other sets become available if they add a basic brick set. Or, don't understimate this one, if you just bought a box of unsorted second-hand bricks, to find out which sets might be hidden in there. And for all those tens of thousands of users, and I am most cetainly one of them, adding all that complexity of different brands, part-numbers, colors, and materials; and all the associated risks of bad quality, non-fitting parts and vendors that go broke and disappear; all of that is a complete waste of time and energy.
    So if you do want to add an SBrick to your MOC, then please, build a look-a-like using basic LEGO bricks (identical dimensions in a contrasting color), and add a simple comment to the description:
        "The pink SBrick look-a-like should be replaced with an SBrick Plus¨.
    Problem solved.
    Take care,
    Simon

    This way it's visible, whatever tab you choose, and once Nathan finds the final soluton, it can be easily removed.

    A quick update-  I'm currently in the path of Hurricane Harvey.  We are supposed to be under heavy rains for the next 4-5 days.  My internet connection comes and goes, so I've just been adding Duplo sets directly from the download now while I can.  I'll make corrections/additions whenever I can. Please hold any change requests or Forum posts about missing Duplo parts.

    I will keep this in mind. In this case I am not able to help since I have never owned the actual packages and also only have a subset of the parts. I was looking at these sets just to understand what I actually have and what I am missing...

    There might be a way.  We could add a small number overlay to the parts.  11089 could have a '4', 64727 could have a '3', and 87747 could have a '2'.  
    Another possibility is to add the LDraw measurements in the Notes section.  
    I'll bring this up in the Admin Discussions.

    Yes someone else noticed it earlier, so we're stuck with the workaround Pending Deletion List again.  Nathan's trying to come up with a solution, but so far, what he's tried has broken something else that didn't have an easy workaround.

    Thank you thea, your answer was very helpful, I am on level 6 already :). I am a mother and just started to have fun from lego with my son who started his jorney with Duplo bricks, but I think soon he will also build something more complicated.
    As we already have more then 1000 different duplo bricks I wanted to find more projects that we could build from duplo bricks but unfortunately the selection isn't so wide...So there is a plenty of opportunities to make our own MOCs and present them here
    So the sets I could not find are 10819-1 (My first Garden, released 2016) and 10838-1 (Pets, also 2017 i think).
