While this Lego Halloween Pumpkin is not as spooky and macabre as the sectioned Lego minifig showing his skeleton and inner guts, it is a complete must in any geekabolous nerdy Halloween decorations.
Is you are wondering where to get all these bright orange bricks for this 3D Lego Halloween Pumpkin you will need two of these Lego packs. Maybe Halloween or something horrific could be a good theme for your Go Miniman Go contest video. If you want to participate and win one of the priceless classic vintage sets we are giving away. Richard Adams' beloved novel -- and the infamously traumatising 1978 animated adaptation -- about a group of rabbits in search of a new home is getting an all-star re-imagining from Netflix and the BBC. Without pretending to compete with the feel of the real thing, there's Lego building freeware out there that's just crying out to be used as a virtual toy.
A child-friendly user manual is provided, and there’s also a series of brief video tutorials on the LDD site to help you get started.
Switch to 'View mode' to see your constructions against several different backgrounds (with sound effects), such as the sea or outer space. Nevertheless, BlockCad has a stimulating set of building options (you can save your work) and the interface is fairly intuitive to use despite a relative lack of text.
All in all, BlockCad is a remarkable individual achievement and may be the Lego-like program of choice for less powerful computers. More advanced Lego freeware:  Any Lego fan with an interest in CAD will probably want to check out LDraw in conjunction with LeoCAD and perhaps also MLCad (LDraw download links here). The independent LDraw community project (recognized by Lego) provides a large collection of freeware tools for serious modeling, design and imaging. To be reviewed: SR 3D Builder (Windows only) is an ambitious Lproofreadego design freeware project which is currently under development - think beta testing.
Made by Hero Design Studio, MyBuild is an articulated skeletal frame that you can 3D print. Hero Design Studio also has a couple of stop-motion short films that feature MyBuild robots, showing off their range of motion and just how cool they can be.
1 – Build in a virtual space using Google maps objects or buildings that have real world significance.
Once you have finished your Lego creation, you can publish it so it becomes public on the map- this is if you have logged in with a Google Account, so Google Apps for Education schools are at an advantage here.
2 – In Design Technology this would be a brilliant way in to think about concepts of space and design.
3 – As the space provided is collaborative, you could build your school, or have an entire class working on building projects where they can explore each other’s creations once published. 5 – In a similar way that many children use Minecraft to explore and manipulate the virtual environment, you could create landscapes which give children the freedom to express themselves.

Based on everything we know right now, you'll never be able to punch a button and travel through "hyperspace", or go to warp speed. But this is the very first one where I reflexively reached into my wallet and threw money at the screen.
Nowadays, it's moved in all sorts of technological directions, including elaborate Mindstorms; robotics based on programmable bricks originally conceived for educational purposes, and something approaching computer aided design (CAD).
Over the years, the Lego toy brand has become increasingly oriented towards prebuilt models making it more difficult to think outside the predesigned blocks.
You can save your new Lego constructions as you go. It's also fun to take prebuilt models to bits, and of course you can also reconstruct them or dream up your own creations with Mindstorms components. For some children, this free toy might be a fun first step towards the  world of creative 3D computer graphics and CAD.
There are plenty of hotkeys and a schematic user manual is provided, but expect a learning curve.
The brainchild of an Italian enthusiast, SR 3D Builder should be worth watching as it develops. Its simple game experience conceals a complex LEGO connectivity simulation which became the core of LEGO Digital Designer. Download the MyBuild 3D model on Thingiverse or directly from Hero Design Studio’s website, which also has guides and sample builds. For example, if you use the map to look at Paris, you will see someone has already made the Eifel tower. I actually did a pretty dreadful job, but it has a lot of potential to be used in the classroom. I don’t especially think this would be limited to younger children, but you could do screen shots of work and use it to help demonstrate concepts. But on a computer you can let your fantasy rip without having to shell out for designer components. However, even if you own a physical Mindstorms set, scope for serious design is limited by LDDs inability to rotate pieces through any angle. BlockCad has been in development since 1998 when the Swedish programmer built it for his own children.
They can do almost everything; print guns, food that we can eat, printed prosthetic hands, rocket engine parts and the list goes on! There’s even a tactical tabletop wargame called Mobile Frame Zero that uses LEGO and other building toys instead of figurines.

I was super excited to come across Build with Chrome today, which manages to incorporate both. According to scientists, the only way you could personally visit other stars is by taking a long, long nap.
And Lego building programs are a spatially intriguing experience for youngsters of all ages. If you're accustomed to Google Earth, then you'll probably soon feel at home navigating in 3D on the virtual grid, moving building blocks and turning them through 90 degrees. Unsurprisingly, it has a less up-to-date look and feel than the commercially backed Lego Digital Designer and a slightly less extensive choice of building blocks and joins. While the wonders of 3D printers are amazing, their price is still a bit too high for many.
There's now also the possibility to upload and share your LDD creations over the Internet, though you have to comply with certain brick choice restrictions (for example, my illustrated attempt didn't pass the test).
LDraw and LeoCAD could be the way to go for Mindstorms enthusiasts wanting to construct programmable digital designs.
He has managed to create a functional 3D printer using the LEGOs that were lying around in his house.This whole project kicked off as a mere practical exercise. Matthew had an encounter during his college with a Makerbot and that had him gain interest in 3D printers and their uses. However, as with most of the students during their studies, he didn’t have enough cash to afford a ‘ready-made’ 3D printer. Must have been a real let down situation but he being an engineering student decided to change it. He made use of LEGOs Digital Designer software to create a fully functional 3D printer using just a few hundred LEGOs, a motor from an old VCR and a hot glue gun. There you have it folks, that’s the arsenal you need and of course the genius mind of an engineer to achieve an operational 3D printer. The LEGObot takes commands from the LEGO NXT control module which runs the VCR motor and results in the activation of the print head!Matthew has termed his LEGObot as a ‘of a prototype than a finished project.’ He hopes to eventually run it using the G-code and to make some mechanical improvements in the design. While yes, the LEGObot sure lacks the build volume and isn’t very classy nor too high end result oriented, it gets the job done.
