Bionicle Database of Studio Models

Hi all,

Today I’d like to introduce the Bionicle Database of Studio Models - a repository for digital files for Bionicle sets and models compatible with Bricklink’s Studio programme.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1IJyAHHGeeMkKCyhR39vl42MGvrDsQPxV?usp=sharing

My hope is that this resource can be:

  1. A useful reference for fans who want to identify how models are built, and to easily create parts lists for uploading into Bricklink
  2. A springboard for other creative projects, be it artwork, animation, or
    your own MOCs/revamps!

These files are freely available

The project is currently in Beta, as we’re currently rapidly populating the chronology of official sets. And this is where we need your help!

We need Studio models of:

Canister sets from 2005 onwards
Boxed sets from all years
Combiners
Alt builds
Canon contest winners (Artakha, Todbuk, Dark Hunters etc)

If you have any files you think might be helpful, please PM me here or elsewhere, or email TammyCalamity [at] outlook.com

Thanks so much to everyone who has donated their time and digital building skill to the project so far!

Keep on building,

-Tammy

So what are some of the boxed sets that are needed? I might be able to work on some when I have the time.

Currently everything from 2005-10. The main slowdown is the number of parts from those years not currently baked into Studio, and the more unique builds in later years.

I know almost all of those sets have been made by various people over the years, so I wanna get as much as we can first so we can focus energy on filling in the gaps

(or building in the gaps, amirite?? …oh)

BDSM… hmmmmm… Guess if this project will ever have a poster-picture, Roodaka will be in the middle of it.

The Bionicle Modeling server have a lot of sets made. You should check it out and ask if you can add those models to your repository.

I have a stud.io model of the Makuta set from 2003.

Is this needed? How can I add it to the database?

If you check the database, it’s already present. Finished models should be sent to Tammy’s inbox - check their video for info.

This is incredible, but if I may ask, why is there a revamped Artakha Bull instead of the original one? Isn’t this meant to be accurate to the originals as closely as possible or that one has a particular reason to be there as a revamp, but not the original?

I’m glad you’re excited!

If we had a .io of the OG model it would be up there; It’s just the model we received as part of a collection, and I included it for now in case it was useful to someone (it might even help them recreate the OG model).

Once we have an accurate build of the original it’ll be updated, but there’s over 300 models and we’re all busy so any help is appreciated.

Ooh, this’ll be useful for a project I’m working on. Gotta have part counts for the individual models of the Rahi sets.
