Technic Cheatsheet v1.0

Hello Everyone,

for quite some time I have been looking for a nice cheatsheet when building/sorting Lego Technic. I always needed some parts laying by my side for measuring purposes and when grabbing axles or beams I often end up counting studs. Not to talk about thinking gear ratios...

Since I only found one proper cheatsheet (from Tom Alphin) so far and that IMHO was still missing some features, I designed my own one this weekend (based on Tom Alphins basic layout). Core features:

  • Stud and Brick rulers in 2 dimensions
  • Axle and Beam size charts
  • Angles for angled connectors and angled beams
  • Basic brick measurements
  • Stud and Non-Stud combination reminder
  • Triangle beam connection reference
  • Gear tooth counts
  • Common gear ratios
  • DIN A4 size (Toms had an odd format)
  • 2 pages for front and back of paper sheet

When printed on DIN A4 (without scaling or additional print borders) it should match all depicted parts by millimeter. I suggest printing and laminating ;)

Does anybody have suggestions for improvement or missing features?

Best wishes!
