Bug in FeatureScript sample "Brick"

g3gg0_deg3gg0_de Member Posts: 6

Hello,

i already described the issue in https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/6774/lego-dimensions-incorrect
but as it seems to be the incorrect forum, noone answered.


i printed some individual Lego parts for my son and face some incorrect dimensions with larger column counts.
It seems the script uses 7.8 mm for the distance of the circles.

vector((0.78 + (c * 0.78)) + definition.dx, (0.78 + (r * 0.78)) + definition.dz) * centimeter,

while the raster is 8mm, the width of the 1-column bricks is indeed 7.8 mm to have enough space between blocks.
but the distance of the circles has to follow the 8 mm raster.

check:
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:Lego_dimensions.svg
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lego

Well, i created a version where i tried to correct this issue.
https://cad.onshape.com/documents/73d1e7b782747d598d58b2e5/w/4070eb539350d14cf6212790/e/1a3c6c5551430a86d1d06cc0

I (hopefully) applied all correct values and the bricks work fine with existing ones.
(also added those small noses for a tighter grip at stud positions present in original LEGO)


Am i missing something or is the the OnShape provided FeatureScript for Lego bricks just incorrect and nobody noticed?

BR,
Georg

    Thank you for the corrections, I've incorporated your changes and versioned the document.
    The FeatureScript Bricks was intended as a language tutorial and not for manufacturing, and so I simply missed this inaccuracy in development.
    Thanks!

    The version of Bricks Featurecript in the Community Spotlight page link still produces a brick with a stud pitch of 7.8mm instead of 8.0mm

    @philip_thomas owns the document. He can probably remedy this.

    Ok, new plan - i copied the code fix into the existing document and versioned it so that all other users of this very important 'brick' custom feature will be notified of the fix! :)

    Isn't that how the Featurescript versioning system is supposed to work? :-)
