    pneumatics

    Test it without load is all I can say but all my pneumatics is old school. the type you had to manually pump to get things moving...
  2. Those sets where released in many versions telling which version it is the hard part. but this is two different sets for sure. Edit : Actually I think it's three, because I don't think the Taxi and the cinema belong to same sets since the font style doesn't match.
  3. Imo we do not need more specific badges, badges should not influence what people build period. it should be more of an encouragement to build anything instead of doing nothing to get an active community.
  4. welcome, Have you checked the help section of the site there is a lot of information and getting started guide in there that can be useful for you, and more is added so it can be worth checking it once in a while. 30 bricks is a bit to small for a premium build imo. I don't think they have enforced the minimum size yet but there is a plan to restrict premium to a bit larger sets. with small sets like 30 bricks you have a 3D puzzle that can be solved with a picture and the inventory with some difficulty depending on how compact it is. I think there is some things to consider before going premium. the first one is do the money really matter? I mean if it will end up just being pocket money for you should consider releasing it for free and allow donations. and let as many enjoy the fruit of your work. I a in this camp, there is so many better ways to earn money that I wouldn't charge for a model even if it took months to complete. another reason to see if you actually have the potential support for a premium is to release the first few MOCS free to see how popular they are. if you put a paywall straight up your less likely to know the answer. and it can be a good idea to do a mix, Have some small free models available that might draw attention to the larger payed ones.
  5. Not glue, so the parts can be recycled into something else the day the mosaic isn't wanted anymore.
  6. an official source that is younger than brick links catalog and it's original source. so there is good reason why BL is as it is. Personally I have always seen the leg color as the main color and the hip as secondary. So first time I encountered BL I thought that was awkward to start with the hips. But then we have custom assemblies and some special sets where each leg has it's own color, which kind of make the leg as main color fall apart. luckily that is a special case rather than something common.
  7. I would say no to any "premium" instructions for original sets, it's better to allow some kind of donation for those who want to support people contributing. and as far as I see it the digital copy do not need to copy the original instruction step by step but allow the author freedom to rearrange the building phases if they think they can do better. as long as the end result is the same it shouldn't matter.
  8. Well then go around looking for something like this: https://za.rs-online.com/web/p/compression-springs/0751499/ it might not be exactly the right spring but should do the trick. Should be possible to buy in a local hobby store or hardware store.
  9. https://rebrickable.com/parts/4701c01/pneumatic-pump-old-style/#buy_parts it's simpler to buy new parts they aren't that expensive and you can use the spring less as regular cylinders
  10. Studio is useless on my computers and they don't seem to have any intention to fix it even if the bugs has been around for years. and has been reported by many over and over. it simply doesn't render on some hardware. (nothing odd just standard intel and nvidia laptop chipsets) giving (null pointer exceptions when launching the GUI elements) using a old windows framework that hasn't been updated since before windows 8 was released. Studio isn't made in a mature software development process that is for sure, seem to be run like a hobby project. I guess if everything is working you don't see all the issues or cause you to see when it fails. I could get it to work on my old windows 8 tablet but then the mouse pointer went behind the program so seeing what you clicked on was impossible after the windows lost focus the first time. LDD was working it's only problem was mostly the lack of ability to manipulate the instruction creation and the number of parts available, for me it was the lack of old parts rather than new. So I am still forced to use old aged Ldraw software with all the limitation that format has. So a big No to only support studio or any specific 3d software as a source for instructions, they can't run on all machines so PDF or other more common open source document style is always good, so you can open them on your mobile devices and tablets that isn't windows based.
  11. Well I must assume you can download a instruction you bought more than ones, so maybe someone did.
  12. I was reffering to these: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-0716/biodreamer/211-2-original-design-modern-print/#comments
  13. in that case some of my old mocs should be linked that way rather than having a MOC entry. I also have some LDraw models of some small official sets.
  14. A bit odd order to add things, wouldn't links to instructions be more important than 3D models and why not just have one link for each and don't limit it to a specific instruct or 3d model file type. it would be really good to be able to add these files like you can on MOCS on regular sets/sub sets
  15. if you just want the gears why, not buy them loose at bricklink or brickowl?
