LEGO - 01 Basic Dimensions & Bricks Explained

60 8 Intermediate
I get a lot of questions about how I create LEGO parts. This is Part I - The Basics. Most "standard" parts can be created using only simple math. Standard parts consist of square, circular, and angled blocks - regular geometric blocks. I will refer to BrickLink (www.bricklink.com/), but many others use similar methods: Peeron: http://www.peeron.com/ BrickOwl: http://www.brickowl.com/ Brickipedia: http://lego.wikia.com/wiki/LEGO_Wiki etc.

How to create NPT (national pipe taper) threads using inventor

11 3 Intermediate
I have had people ask me on here how I model npt threads for some of the parts I make, so I figured I would put it out there for others to see as well. Note: if you look at the threaded models I have on this website you will see that I have clearly taken more time on some of them than others, this tutorial will teach you how to do it the right and proper way.

How to convert a CAD file to an STL file?

2 0 Intermediate
STL is the standard file type used by most or all rapid prototyping systems. A STL is a triangulated representation of a 3D CAD model (figure 1). The triangulation of a surface will cause faceting of the 3D model. The parameters used for outputting a STL will affect how much faceting occurs (figure 2 and 3). You cannot build the model any better or smoother than the STL file, so if the STL is coarse and faceted, that is what you can expect in the final model. In the CAD package, when exporting to STL, you may see parameters for chord height, deviation, angle tolerance, or something similar. These are the parameters that affect the faceting of the STL.You don’t necessarily want to go too small. The finer the STL the larger the file is in size, which will affect processing time in Insight as well as build time. Below is some information found on the Internet regarding exporting to STL from various CAD packages.

LEGO - 03 Using Data from LDraw

19 0 Intermediate
Sometimes LEGO bricks don't fall into the regular 0.8/1.6mm rule. This will explain how to get "lumpy" 3D surface data from LDraw DAT files and use them to create your own intelligent parts. *I use the AutoDesk Inventor Pro suite, which includes Inventor Pro and 3D Studio Max. I will discuss using certain file formats, but you need to determine what your software will import/export. *I've been told that IV 2017+ will let you measure the LDraw data directly in Inventor, removing the whole 3DMax conversions steps.
