PsyCloid Drawing Machine by SevenStuds

PsyCloid Drawing Machine by SevenStuds

The idea that a person can create a LEGO model, which can then create something entirely new on its own is a very exiting concept. It brings the model to a point where it is a tool; a means of creating more than just itself. The inspiration for this model came when I saw the wooden Cycloid Drawing Machine by Joe Freedman. Its simplicity of operation and yet its complexity in artwork made me curious whether it could be reproduced in the brick. The PsyCloid design is different in that it has freestanding…continue reading →
“Showtime” Crawler Assembly Sequence

“Showtime” Crawler Assembly Sequence

After the surprisingly positive reaction that the "Showtime"crawler had among fellow builders, there just had to be instructions made so that others could build and improve the chassis. There are still many technical and structural mods that could make this a much better overall performer, so I urge anyone to push the design further and share their results. I hope that the photos are not too difficult to follow. The sequence is very basic, but with a bit of patience you should manage to reconstruct the chassis.    continue reading →
LEGO® Technic MOC of Tim Cameron’s “ShowTime” Crawler

LEGO® Technic MOC of Tim Cameron’s “ShowTime” Crawler

This MOC is inspired by Tim Cameron's 700HP rig called "ShowTime".  It's a one-off custom built rig made specifically for "Southern style Rock Bouncing" events. These machines are all about insane horsepower, near impossible climbs and pure strength. The chassis design uses over 60m of steel tubing as is often criticized as being ugly and "excessive", but the design is exactly what keeps this rig together after repeated crashes, rolls and torque-driven rock bouncing. The LEGO version is made to closely resemble the original at 1:10. It features a powerful driving and climbing…continue reading →
RC Tires on LEGO® Rims

RC Tires on LEGO® Rims

You've heard that LEGO is the world's largest tire manufacturer making over 350 million tires a year. It just so happens that these tires are made for the purpose of play and not performance or realism. This is where the world of cross-breed assemblies between 3'rd party tire manufactures and regular rims starts to look interesting. It brings the opportunity to start driving outdoors with more control, or simply having a car model resemble its real-life counterpart. The idea behind SevenStuds is to grow the variety of wheels and parts you can use…continue reading →
