Stud.io only has a small selection of printed parts, but there is hope. Stud.io’s Part Designer tool can help you with your clown torso. Here’s how: Using a paint tool (like Windows’ Paint3D), save only the center bit of the torso to a PNG file, using the above torso image as your master. Open up Part Designer and choose the option to modify a part. Search ...

I believe that the last version that had a complete set of elements was 4.3.11, however that has dependencies on Adobe Flash, so will likely not work on most modern systems that have now removed Flash. The last release, 4.3.12 has a known issue with missing parts. However you can use the parts library (Assets.lif) from 4.3.11 with 4.3.12 - this can be ...

The "App" page does seem to be hard to find at the moment. I found it by clicking on this little icon on the MINDSTORMS "About" page. The app is distributed through various app stores: Microsoft Store (Windows) Apple App Store (macOS/iOS) Google Play (Android/Cromebook) Amazon App Store (Kindle Fire) There isn't currently any option ...

You need a newer version of the Lego Fantom Driver. You can download it here as part of the whole software kit: https://education.lego.com/en-us/downloads/retiredproducts/nxt/software If you want JUST the driver on it's own, scroll to the advanced section at the bottom of this page: https://www.lego.com/en-us/themes/mindstorms/downloads And grab the NXT ...

LEGO Education has a new programming software called EV3 Classroom that will work on Windows, Mac and Chromebooks that can run Android apps. This is probably the best option for the devices listed but won't work on all Chromebooks. It is available from the LEGO Education download page. The retired Chrome app only works on Chromebooks. MakeCode could be an ...

The LEGO EV3 Block Developer Kit documentation refers to these as "gray blobs". These are compiler intrinsics and don't have a .vix implementation. They generally correspond directly to the bytecodes from the EV3 Firmware Developer Kit. Note: Developer kits are available on the official LEGO MINDSTORMS download page.

Yes, it is possible to remote control a Technic Control+ hub with Python using a library such as pylgbst or bricknil. You can also write MicroPython programs that run on the hub directly using Pybricks. You can get support for Pybricks at https://github.com/pybricks/support/discussions. There is a Bluetooth troubleshooting guide to help with connection ...

Please note that I think that software preference can very often be based on many factors that are difficult to enumerate and sometimes even more difficult to express. That said, I think there are a few important differences between the two specific pieces of software that you referenced that could be useful for answering your question. (Also note that my ...

In the end, I exported from blender to STL file and used http://marc.klein.free.fr/lego/stl2dat/stl2dat.html to convert to DAT. The final result worked well, and you can see the custom part used alongside regular ldraw parts in the build instructions here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-68128/seejay/glittering-viper-rainbow-bears-starfighter/#details The ...

I'm sorry you've been frustrated with Blender. It is complicated and not as intuitive as it could be, but the alternatives are vastly more expensive for slightly better UX. 3D modeling is a lot of learning, regardless of the tool. Blender seems to be the best free general 3D modeling package available. There are tons of tutorials out there and Blender.SE ...

I haven't tried creating my own parts. However, I've seen that Bricklink's PartDesigner is quite popular in the community. It looks like the creation process is quite streamlined, you can edit the connectivity info of each piece, and it plays very nice with Bricklink's Studio.

According to this review on Rebrickable, the same app you download for the building instructions is the one you use to program it. Did you download an app for instructions?

The official answer is NO. EV3 Python only supports Windows 10 or version 1803 or newer. The page from the Documentation listing the system requirements are linked below: EV3 Documentation - Minimum system requirements That being said, there might be some trick to still getting it to work, but this is outside the supported scope. Everything hinges on the EV3 ...

I think LDPartEditor can do what you want. https://nilsschmidt1337.github.io/ldparteditor/

The location of the crash logs would depend on the system you are using. I have mapped out the three candidates below: If you are using the classic LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Education software: Open your existing or a new experiment. Go to the Tools menu and select Data Log File Manager. Browse to the .rdf file and click the Import button. (It can be on the brick ...

As far as I can tell, this part is not available to you because no one in the community has invested the time to create an LDraw model for it. The model files for most libraries of 3D LEGO bricks are based on the LDraw models created freely and collaboratively by the community. Your part should be on LDraw here, but it is not there, indicating that it has ...

I know this is long in the past, but I just had success today with being unable to connect from a tablet which had previously worked fine. At some point, the tablet had been upgraded (by accidentally tapping the wrong button) and that seemed to be the only possible cause. (To add more useful keywords for others searching, I'll include what I searched for: I ...

I usually use Rebrickable to compare whatever I need. First, you need to create two custom lists (My LEGO > My Custom Lists). Import tool supports "BrickLink Stud.IO files" so no conversion is required. Once you got your lists sorted you need to compare them using "Compare sets" feature (Sets > Compare Sets). While the name suggest ...

Bricklink Studio has a built-in mosaic generator with a lot of options for tweaking. The software also has a mode to generate instructions and supports direct integration with BrickLink’s catalog, marketplace, and gallery so you can order parts easily. Parts generated can be optimised for price, there is also support for various colour pallets and brick ...
