by • July 21, 2016 • No Comments

3dp_ten3dpthings_lego_bannerThis week I wanted to do a thing a little various with the Ten 3D Printable Things column. Instead of finding awe-inspiring objects for you to 3D print I wanted to find awe-inspiring LEGO parts which you may 3D print and and so create in fact additional awe-inspiring things with them. I have discovered a ton of excellent LEGO pieces which can take your creates into entirely new directions and quite alter how you thought LEGO blocks work.

Of course one of the things which you are going to require to manufacture certain of preceding you plan to 3D print a bunch of LEGO parts is which your printing device can manage the level of more detail requireed on the parts. Because of the shape and dimensions of the models, there is not a lot of room to do much post processing to the finished bricks so the final printed piece is going to be the many they are going to get. But if you have a 3D printing device capable of high resolution parts, and so go to town and create by yourself a few of the radest LEGO constructs at any time.

Here are Ten 3D Printable LEGO Things:
