I am building a mech in LDD V4.3.11 and I need this piece for the head sculpt of the mech. I can't find it anywhere in the toolbox, with and without using the search box above. Where can I find this piece (Part No. 14704)?

    Strange, I have a slightly older version of LDD, version 4.3.10, brick Version 2248.1 The element is present both in standard and extended mode there. – Michael Verschaeve Apr 23 '18 at 6:19
  • That is very strange. Thanks to @MichaelVerschaeve's answer, I found it only in Extended mode, and not Standard Mode. I think Lego made this part a legacy part for some bizarre reason. – GipsyD Apr 27 '18 at 13:56

    There's no reason for this part being considered a legacy part. From bricklink you can check in which sets it was present and sort by year released, still plenty of 2018 sets having it... One reason I can think of for moving it to extended mode is the difficulty one might experience in LDD when modelling connections with it... – Michael Verschaeve Apr 27 '18 at 14:02
  • Maybe. But the part works relatively well in Extended mode of LDD, so I fail to see why Lego just wouldn't put this in Standard mode for mech makers. – GipsyD Apr 27 '18 at 14:39

I tried in version 4.3.10. The element is present both in standard and extended mode. I updated to version 4.3.11, had to update anyway as 4.3.10 apparently wasn't supported anymore and only worked offline. In the standard mode, I can confirm element 14704 is not present. However, if you switch to extended mode (Main menu -> View -> New themes -> extended), it's present. Unfortunately the extended mode let's you build in colors that might not exist... I hope this gets addressed in a next update as to me this seems a standard element.

    Thank you so much! I thought I had to abandon my mech build after so long because of one stupid but essential part. I can confirm that the part is there in the extended version of LDD V4.3.11 – GipsyD Apr 23 '18 at 7:29
