MPS. Rear axle V: Torsion-beam

Following idea by Zachary Cross

Without drive (code: R.D)

- R.D.1


Standard: Yes
Max shock adsorvers allowed: 1, it can use hard spings, but works better with soft springs.

Advanced suspension geometry (Camber angle): No


You can read more about the Modular Platform System here: MPS

Also you can download all axles and chassis in only one link: Download ( )

Great design, although i'm using a macbook, so i can't use SR3D to download it (at least not yet.) so would you be able to take a few pictures of the axle at different angles?

Sheepo said...

Exist a easier way, you only need change the file extension from .L3B to .LDR and you will can open it with MLCad and LDView ;)

Zachary Cross said...

Thanks! I've successfully opened it in Bricksmith.

Hello Sheepo,
Is MLCad and LDView the same program or what? Since you write: MLCad and LDView?

Regards,
Emil

Go to www.ldraw.org and see it by yourself ;)

isn't this the type of susp used in you're mini cooper??

Sheepo said...

No, the mini uses a complete independent suspension.

Nice. But I think if you want to have a torsion bar with drive you have to change it to a swing axle. Right? Because I want to be sure Thank you.

Sheepo said...

Not always, you can add drive to a torsion bar axle, a swing axle is completely different design

Hello, I'm running windows 10 and using LDD, i set the .L3B to run in LDD but LDD wont register or see it so nothing happens when i click it, it just opens LDD. Thank you for your time!

Sheepo said...

MPS files are not compatible with LDD, you must use SR3D builder, or MLCad changing the file extension

I'm not sure how to reply but thanks! which should i go with? i was thinking MLCad, but i dont know which is best. And i REALLY appreciate the reply from such a higher up class of Lego builders! and i don't want to be annoying but check me out on youtube and google+! (i have ZBLJ in my community and would love to have you in it to :D )

Scratch that i got SR3D i thought it was more user friendly. but still would REALLY appreciate you checking out my google+ and youtube! if you don't want to i understand, I'm just another pesky Lego kid that wants you in his little group.
