Part three of however many. Most of these parts were made by request. Please be sure to check out the previous entries. Made in Autodesk Inventor 2008 using real LEGOŽ dimensions.
About this creation
On top this may look like an ordinary tile...
...but it's actually 4x4. I think they need to make tiles that cover more surface area. That way you could avoid a lot of crevaces on your tiled surface.
Brently Mills and Mark Kelso suggested I make a tiled wing. So here is a prototype 4x10, smooth, left-hand wing.
The bottom isn't very complicated, but if LEGOŽ built one, it probably would be.
This piece is similar to the exsisting 1x1 circle, except without the stud on top.
This is a handy little number! It's a half-studded/half-tiled plate! My inspiration comes from 4-wide cars. Because at some points I've had to make smooth wheel arches. This was hard because the smooth tiles stretch back, usually underneath the cabin of the car, so my windows (1x1 slopes) could not be attached on the outside. With these, the base of the windows would be connected and the plate over the wheels will be smooth. Understand? I didn't think so.
Here's is the bottom of the piece. Notice how the bottom even looks like I morphed the two together.
i guess these pieces are commonly wanted because i've wanted them too.

I was just wishing for the 4x4 tile and studless 1x1 round yesterday! I love to see your ideas every time. And the fact that you've rendered them in 3-D with such detail just really brings them to life!
I would love the first part!
It is,actually,possible to make these!
on the wing,(ill make it for ya mark ;P)you just take one of the same with studs on and cut them away with a knife.
then it will be like this one.
Wow man, all of your concept pieces are great! My favorites are the reverse tile, the studless 1x1 round, anf the 1x1 axel. Keep this up. Oh, and you should get one of those 3D printers to actually make these. That would be awesome, you could start your own company! Ok, I got carried away, still, I love these. Nice work. Peace - Patrick
