Today we are creating a new label 'Fan Suggested Parts' at TBs , to tag a new series of posts. These are intended to highlight possible Technic parts that some fans have been suggesting and designing over the past few years.
I'll start with a few drawings from barman. Probably one of the most prolific AFOLs, not only suggesting new Technic parts and respective use cases, but also investing time to design them in a very professional way.
Later I'll intend to continue with other posts, more focused on groups of parts (also authored by some other fans) with similarities that would make them to fit into the same category or similar.
All these AFOL designs can be found online, in the websites most used by LEGO fans to publish images from they own creations, either physical and virtual models, or imaginary parts like in this case.
So lets take a sneak peak!
This would be quite innovative in terms of LEGO Technic models, and would also open many new use cases.
Despite its really compact design I'm nor sure however, if it should not have a 3L wide form factor case instead of the 2L shown. IMO it would be more favorable for a standard utilization and a better fit into the odd spacing from actual studless Technic system.
One ball bearing to reduce rotational friction and support radial and axial loads, might be of good use.
Wish at least some of them turn into real ABS, at some point in time...
And you? What do you think about these?
