It's brilliant . However , I don't know how to get instructions out of that SR3D file , only from LDD . Is there any possible way to get instructions and the parts needed ? Thanks , Frank

Sheepo said...

It is imposible make instructions for LDD because some of the parts used doesn't exist in LDD...

Any way to make instructions in the SR3D ? Thanks.

Sheepo said...

Yes, but it need a lot of work. Using SR3D, convert the file to MLCad, fix ti and later use LPub4.0, but make this with all axles is crazy...

Can you tell me how to convert a SR3D file into an MLCad-file ? I didn't find an Export as .MPD file in SR3D.
If I know how to convert the files, I can make MLCad instructions from your SR3D files for you if you like.

Hi Jurgen, thanks for your help!!!
Covert it is very easy, you only need change the SR3D extension .L3B to .LDR, and you will can open it with MLcad and LDview ;)

Hi, I am trying to build F.AD.1A but this file is corrupted. i have downloaded it several times from your site but its still not loading, and is giving me a execution program error. all other files are okay.

Great work btw.

Can this system also be used for trail trucks?

Wishmaster said...

Nevermind opend it with LDView

hi there! your work looks excellent.
I would like to ask you if you have tested on a moc the mcpherson F.AD.1A (with drive) and if you think it will be strong enough for a 4x4/suv moc
thanks a lot for posting theese instructions

Sheepo said...

Yes, it will be enough strong. Actually this axle is the same of my Porsche 911 but without brakes, and the Porsche weight more than 3.5kgs...

Hi Sheepo,

Is it possible that you make a tutorial on braking systems, because I think it is as important as the chassis or the gearbox on a car.
Please, Frank

Hi there!
I've got the set 8080 supercar. Do you think I can make this module with parts only from this set?
Thanks, Frank

Sheepo said...

I don't know, but to know it you only need download the file and compare the inventories.
