Power functions - Brick alternatives

TheFewTheFew EnglandMember Posts: 1,604
Hi!

I am building a MOC and for a few reasons I won't be able to use a whole bunch of power functions that the MOC demands. .. one being cost, and a refusal to buy cheap fakes.

So for this build I need to replace the power functions with dummy inserts of normal bricks to fill the voids.

So the question is..

Is anyone aware of any building guides that show how to build replacement power function shapes from normal bricks? Looking to save some trial and error.

Hope that makes sense. 

Thanks

    The actual parts I need dimensions to make dummies of are...

    The s-brick

    The 9v rechargeable battery box

    The 9v Power Functions L with Dark Bluish Gray Bottom

    The 9v power Functions Servo with Dark Bluish Gray Bottom

    The 9v XL motor.

    Thanks

    Do these PF parts serve a structural function in the MOC ? If not, just build as normal leaving holes where they go.

    Yeah the battery box is structural the motors provide reinforcement.  I guess I could subs some other technic parts for the motors, but would rather have full sized "blanks" if I can work out the dimensions and also get pin holes in the correct places.

    I am pretty sure I have seen a few dummy PF motors on Rebrickable.
