I printed a sample of most of these parts but to be honest I don't get it... Some wheels have large holes in the center but none of the parts fit in there to hold an axle. The axles seem too big to fit into anything including the parts that have axle holes. The parts do seem to snap onto standard legos but otherwise I'm a bit lost. Trying to print a ton of legos to contribute to "Toys for Tots" so I was looking for parts that would allow the kids to make vehicles.... Any thoughts?

Anybody print these out yet? I would love to see some pictures.

Thanks for posting - do you have STLs for the standard "+" section axle or any of the technics gears?

I'm looking around. In the meantime, if you have acces to or can convert, Solidworks or ProE then please visit Carnegie Melon for Lego Nxt parts: http://www.education.rec.ri.cmu.edu/content/lego/solid_model/index.htmhttp://www.education.rec.ri.cm...

You can also get free strandard CAD parts at: http://www.traceparts.com/users/TracePartsOnline/index.asphttp://www.traceparts.com/user...

Hope this helps.

As a follow-up - how do you open the files at tracepartsonline? I work with Art Of Illusion
amp; Meshlab mostly, but among the long list of options for download format, I can't find one that either of those can work with. Any suggestions?



They want you to register to add parts to your 'caddy'. Parts are indexed per manufacturer catalogue so you may need to know what you want. Dimensions help you choose something suitable if you don't. Some parts also require you to spend 'credits'. Suppose tracepartsonline is more oriented say towards 'hardcore' engineering than 'artistic' use.

Good luck.

Thanks - I got by the "caddy" thing, it's not so much an issue of downloading in my case, it's just the available download formats are all formats like IGES and ProE etc that I can't find a free-as-in-beer way to open. I have a few files, I just can't actually get into them, and was wondering about your experience working with them - do you own commercial software? Or do you know a good translation path to get them into e.g. STL format?



Good to know. No access to ProE or Solidworks at this point but maybe in the future. Thanks!
