  1. General Notes:There will no obligation for a blog entry anymore. It is still allowed to post a link to your model or additional images, but it is not required anymore to submit a model to the challenges. The 3D Warehouse tag is still required though and should be added when uploading a model to the Warehouse.

    You can use the hyperlink code creator on the frontpage of the blog to create the code for a hyperlink in your message. Copy this code and paste it in the comment box on the place where your want the hyperlink to be.

    Challenge suggestions are welcome to be placed on the blog. Items will be noted and compiled on the moderator’s list. At that point, the initial comment for the suggestion may be deleted so as to maintain a streamline challenge thread for use of posting entries for the challenge and comments to models. Challenge suggestions have always been welcomed and taken under consideration.

    Please refrain from using background images in your models as it is the model itself that is being judged.

    You'll notice a new link on the main page that directs you to the First Place Certificate area to which winners are able to print a certificate with a picture of their model detailing their excellence. You can access the page through the main page of the blog.

    Good Luck!!!!

  5. American Truck en Jeep_byALXMaybe a tip; use low poly bricks, or you might end up with an enormous model! Hmm, fun challenge, hard to resist!

  10. @ TinkerToy
    of course not, it is just an example.

  11. Great idea, though I'm not going to enter this time because even if a LEGO model is really ogiginal, it has got bordeline basic because too many people have made these kind of models...

  12. Can't you make it a two week challenge, I'm not going to make it in time.... An airport is big

  16. @ HenkieTenk

    Could you explain your idea deeply, it sounds interesting to me !

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well, like making skull, ship, island etc...
    Cave of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves....

    ReplyDelete
  18. I definitely like the idea of some sort of treasure, like ship wreck (a challenge in itself!), or Tutankhamun tomb or something like that perhaps?

  21. i just finished my model and its 13 mb so i can't upload it on 3d warehouse! this sux!

  22. Hello

    Shant Krichelian & all

    If your model file size is too large & you cannot upload it on 3d warehouse, then don’t worry you can upload it to any file sharing service you like; or go to http://www.4shared.com/ create your account & share files.

    3d warehouse supports large files, try this (Install & use fully updated Firefox browser) & latest version of Sketchup software.
    sketchup

    Thanks

  23. Hi Rahul
    I did that and still i couldn't upload the .skp file. I couldn't even upload a 200kb sketchup model with the picture of the model; it says i need to upload a KMZ file. I don't know whats wrong!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Shant

    Don’t upload ‘.spk’ model by the 3d warehouse website upload link (this link is only for Google earth .kmz files); & upload by sketchup soft – file – 3dwarehouse – share link.

  25. Comment COSEDIMARCO @ 3dwarehouse:
    Gret work! to reduce filesize work on components. Most of them can be cut in 2-4 pieces and use flip command to recreate the original one.

    Thanks for voting! I know about working with components, but didn't wanted any visible lines within a brick or other subject. With rendering this won't matter, but when viewing in SU it will be visible. That's why I did it this way. Just explaining the filesize :P
    It was a nice challenge, I'm looking forward to the results of voting.

  26. @ Henkie Tenk
    You can simply hide unwanted lines. ;)

  27. Very interesting challenge, but since there are already so many LEGO models and components in the warehouse, I don't think it will be fair. What is there to stop someone from just using components already posted? They could just explode them and remake into a new component. There is almost no way to verify, because everybody's LEGO blocks should be exactly the same. Also, how then can we judge modeling skill, when all that is left to do is assemble a LEGO model. Shall we give an award for who is the best at playing with LEGOs? I see a few interesting models, but no premise for a challenge competition.

  28. Hey Tinkertoy,

    I made everything myself! :D And if you copy things from the wrehouse, you would get other measurements. Okay, you could scale it, but that's a hell of job.
    But for the rest you are right. No more LEGO challenge, it's more playing than building.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I made every lego element myself. You can see them and the way they are made in my model:

    Lego components for "Buggy"

    ReplyDelete
  30. Don't get me wrong. I'm not accusing anybody; I believe you two have made your own components. There are ways to tell on both of your models that they are definitely your own work. I apologize for saying there is no way to distinguish originality. It is just that this challenge subject is prone to abuse; and if certain "rip-off" modelers were participating, they definitely would be cheating and there wouldn't be any way to prove it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. No cheating from me, either.... I should have written my name on each of the lego bumps :-)

  40. I was working on a Lego Technic model that was only slightly smaller than my Lego F1 model. A lot of parts still had to be made. I was being a bit too ambitious. I can still vote though, right?

    What's the next challenge?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Next challenge should be an Airport. or something like that. Just a suggestion. UG out.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I just posted some LEGO components I have drawn since yesterday, that have smaller components, for smaller file size. Since there are many large models that cannot fit in the warehouse. This model also shows how co-planar components(CPC's) can be used to maintain proper lighting between items with hidden edges. Maybe this will be an inspiration or a new standard in detailed LEGO blocks, or maybe not. However; take it for what its worth.
