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.

The LEGO version is made to closely resemble the original at 1:10. It features a powerful driving and climbing…continue reading →
