|Images:||All of the images in the Registry are the same scale for
|Element numbers:||Lego piece numbers, typically the number molded on the element,
are used where available. Note that many elements consists of several numbered plastic parts.
In some cases all of the individual component numbers are listed, sometimes not.
|Element names:||Technica names are 'official' Lego or Dacta names, those in common usage,
suggestions from others or ones I made up out of thin air. I have
tried to be more systematic in this version of the registry and the names generally follow
the format of:
root name, dimensions, modifications, date
The date is used to distinguish between multiple versions of the same element, and results in much clearer names than previous versions of the registry. Alternate names may be in any format and include those commonly seen on other web sites:
LD LDraw name from Steve Bliss' Partsref
PR Peeron name from Dan and Jennifer Boger's Peeron Inventory Database. This link will take you to the corresponding Peeron catalog entry. Just remember to come back when you are done!
|Dimensions:||In general the dimensions used in the registry are the
same as those used in Lego instruction books. Dimensions are listed in one of the following
length (in Lego units) x width x height (e.g. 6632 Liftarm, 1 x 3).
length (in Lego units) (e.g. 4459 Friction connector, 2L, 82)
diameter (in Lego units) (e.g. 2819 Steering wheel, 3D)
length (in cm or mm) (e.g. 4701b Pneumatic cylinder, 48 mm, 84)
Tires/hubs are measured in mm, the specific dimensions depend on the tire.
|Colors:||By their own admission Lego themselves can no longer keep up with element colors
so I am not even going to try. Rather, this version of the registry links directly
to the Peeron database, which gives not only the most current color
information but also much better availability information than previous versions
of the registry. For an overview of Lego colors
see the Isodomos Color Tree.
