working on 3D printed LEGO COMPATIBLE PARTS.

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.

    Let's finish our current trade first and then we can start a new one.

    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.

    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.

    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. 
    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.

    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 may also make minifigure parts like weapons, hats, etc
    Why not a weapon hat?
