I am a young, but long-time LEGO enthusiast hoping to be an engineer when I'm older, and have committed to this site to help build a community.

comment How do I print images onto minifig body parts?
Ah, that's nice. But it doesn't have quite as much customability as I would like.

comment How can I create synthetic imagery (rendering) of LEGO models?
While the blender script sometimes works, the technique of importing an LDraw file into LeoCAD, then exporting it as either an obj or 3ds file and importing it into Blender has been MUCH more reliable from my experience. In the python script, bricks often get left behind, lack all of their verticies, or simply don't get imported. A massive contrast from the LEOCAD technique provided by PeterDC.

revised How can I get my NXT to turn on - all it does is softly click?

comment NXT screen either flickering or blank, what do I do?
@Joubarc No, I have two NXTs. Sorry, I should've said "one of mine" Instead of "mine". And now I understand better what you're saying.

comment NXT screen either flickering or blank, what do I do?
I disagree. Mine recently gave out when I was right in the middle of making a robot. I wanted to get back to building my robot as soon as possible, so I soldered it. It only took about ten to fifteen minutes to heat it up the soldering iron, disassemble the NXT, solder the capacitors, slightly reassemble it the NXT, test it, and finish reassembling it. It's really not that risky if you know what you're doing. I much prefer soldering it over having to wait a week or so.

Oh, ok. Well, I never found that to be a problem.
