How do you convert a 3d model into bricks?
Posted 19 June 2011 - 06:10 PM
The reason I ask is that I would like to build very large scale cars with technic workings but an accurate brick built shell. It would also be nice to create VERY large scale things like T-rexes and dragons, real cool looking you know, not bright red!
I know the master model builders have access to such programs, but I have yet to find one.

Interesting, I would assume that is how Lego is able to build such accurate large scale models, such as giant minifigs that you see at Lego stores. It must also take things such as stability in to consideration 'cause otherwise you would just have a bunch of 1x1's without any support. Speaking of which, does anybody have or know instructions for a one foot tall "minifig," made from normal Lego bricks. I have done some searching and I haven't found anything yet.

I think you mean something like this:
Official Sets Made In LDraw;
post your official LEGO models in this topic!
My motto this year: More building, less thinking! FAILED...

The 3723 LEGO Mini-Figure is taller than one foot, but I think you will enjoy building it. There is a link to the PDF Building Instructions there.

Yes that's what i'm looking for. It doesn't have to give me precise piece by piece instructions, just the contours in lego scale. Then I can figure out how to make it strong.
Thanks Philo, that Lsculpt program looks promising.
