Lego Designer

An experiment in generating decals for affixing to Lego bricks. A custom piece of software allows you to draw various shapes, which are tiled across multiple bricks. These are then turned into a PDF document that can be cut out using a vinyl cutter.

Process

The Lego decals are cut on the vinyl cutter, transferred to the bricks with masking tape, and then can be incorporated into Lego constructions.

Software

The designer software is a simple Processing program that tiles your drawing across multiple bricks. You can try the designer. Click within the white brick to draw and use 'x' to undo.
