Technic connector and beam consultations . For a while now I've been working with different CAD systems and pretty much from the very beginning wondered if one would be able to build MOCs with it... . Yes i know. There is Lego Digital Designer, LDraw, MLCad and so on, and so forth... But each of those offer different possibilities in exchange for a lack of others. Seeing that I've decided to use professional CAD software to create flawless brick models which after that one could connect to each other with ease in the same program and lastly apply at least basic visual effects to make it look more realistic. All functions within one software. ___________________________________________________ After some testing made within most popular CADs for which I have licenses due to my work and education (mechanical engineering) I've chosen to use Autodesk (R) Inventor (TM). Below and at the top you can find two models made by me today, which I post to consult with others. I personally think they're OK, but I'd like to hear your opinions. Please comment, criticize and leave ratings, since I'd like to correct any mistakes before modeling more bricks. The main picture and the next one is as you can see a basic Technic connector with friction. Do notice that the model doesn't include the surface roughness. The next two pictures show a model of a T-shaped Technic beam. The beam color is an actual LEGO light stone grey. All models made with 0,1 mm precision. ATTENTION: At the moment I'm not posting the dimensions since I'm not sure if it is legal. I've send an e-mail to LEGO regarding this matter and I'm currently waiting for an answer.
