working on 3D printed LEGO COMPATIBLE PARTS.

LEGOFan2LEGOFan2 USAMember Posts: 418
Hey everyone ever wondered how come Lego never makes certain double sided bricks or other odd parts that would be great to have in a MOC ? Well I have and have started working on custom parts and will have them for sale hopefully in February. If you have any questions please ask.

    Can I buy or trade for some of your extra questions?  I tend to waste mine.

    My first question is, did you deliberately mis-spell your name?

    Can you make a mobius band element?

    How about a Penrose triangle?

    I always wanted some of those in my mocs.

    No I typed a little to fast when I was setting it up because of joy.

    Even if you are not good at drawing do you think you can post a sketch of what you mean in Lego terms so I can decide if it is possible.

    What is the long term clutch like, as from what I've seen, I wouldn't rely on printed parts for strength through their clutch.

    Google them and then decide if you think I was serious or not...

    Well, a mobius strip wouldn't be impossible - in fact, a large one could probably be constructed with currently available parts.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,197
    Yeah, they can. There are solid / rigid ones but also flexible ones. Plus some people have tried Klein bottles too but these tend to be rigid.

    If I may, you should focus your efforts on something revolutionary.  The 2x4 red brick has come and gone.  The 1x4's been done.  The future?  A 0x4 brick.  I think many of us here would get behind this.

    I am mostly doing it for me to use the parts and they will also be sold incase anybody is interested in them.
