Frame Chef: May 2013

Postby Mantisking » Wed May 01, 2013 7:08 am

Welcome to the next installation of Frame Chef, a monthly "contest" to build Mobile Frame Zero frames (or other MFØ creations) based on a "secret ingredient" (a specific LEGO™ part or set of parts) that will change each month.

The Rules

  • Build a frame (or other MFØ creation) that makes essential, extensive and/or innovative use of the secret ingredient parts.
  • Create a new post in the appropriate sub-forum (e.g. "Frame Design" for frames, "Vehicle Design" for vehicles, etc) to showcase your build, just as you would for any other creation.
  • Do not mention Frame Chef in the title of your post. Instead name the creation like usual. If you want to mention Frame Chef in the initial post of the thread, go ahead, but this is not required. (The idea here is that your creation may go on to have a life far beyond Frame Chef, so no point in tying it down.)
  • Your post can contain photos of brick builds, LDraw files, etc. Instructions or breakdowns always welcome.
  • Add a link to your post in this month's Frame Chef thread (i.e. this one). Do not post creations directly to this thread.
  • Make sure to specify usage restrictions about your creations in the first post. It is recommended you use the same Creative Commons license that Mobile Frame Zero does.
  • At the end of the month, this thread will close and a new thread, with a new secret ingredient will begin.

The Prize

Since the whole point of this is really just to help stoke the creative fires, there doesn't seem to be much of a point in naming a "winner". If people really scream for one, we'll figure something out, but the point is really just to do something not all that serious.

So, without further ado, Chairman Mofo will now reveal the secret ingredient for this month:

I guess you can call it an essential use, 'cause the arms would fall off without the secret ingredient. Here.

I challenged myself not to use it for a wheel or propeller. I'm quite happy with the result.

My entry. It's a total train-wreck.
