A new tool : LPEtools

This new tool has been designed to help builders to know more about their Lego Pneumatic Engines. LPEtool manages all the important data : type of cylinder, number, switch, modified or not, dimensions… The tool calculates the maximun power (at maximun speed and pressure) and the average torque which varies with the rotation of the crankshaft.

LPEtools, version 1.0 may 2011

For instance, this classic LPE with 1 cylinder provides 1.3W of power whereas the Nicjasno’s 8 cylinder big block provides 100W, that is surprising but with 1500rpm and 6 bars of pressure, it is quite normal. If you have comment, question of suggestion, feel free to comment in this post.

Lego Survey : The Results

Here are the results :

Many thanks for your participation ! It is very useful for me to know what you want and what you need. According to the result, I have decided to develop the digital PDF sale shop, then the printed building instructions. Despite the large amount of people who are interested in complete package, there are not enough for paying 125%-150% of the Lego price. Because this is the real price for crafted sets (depends on the price of Bricklink). Consequently, I have decided to NOT release this type of product at the moment.

Concerning the E-shop for buying building instruction, I am currently working on a E-shop which enables ALL builders to sell their PDF. The builders will be able to use the E-shop to put the instructions up for sale and receive incomes with an automatic retailing and a download section.

If you are a builder, and if you are interested in selling your PDF instructions, please contact me ! I am sure that you will be interested in my E-shop.

The HD is here

I have recently bought a Fujifilm S2000 HD, a camera with HD video. This device allows me to improve the pictures of my model, it’s more accurate and tolerant with low brightness than my old compact Pentax. It has also a wide-angle lens which permits me to take pictures with lot of details and no more backward. You can watch the  comparison between the pentax and the Fuji.
