BrickUtils

BrickUtils is a simple utility for builders that uses LEGO® Digital Designer™ or LDraw-compatible CAD for designing models.
The main problem that BrickUtils tries to solve is the answer at the question: can I build this model with bricks I own?

News!

BrickUtils will migrate to Java language. Starting from release 0.2.0.0 Python version will be freezed and will not receive any further update or support. Java version is already available for testing purpose, but must be considered unstable.

Utility for importing bricks and catalogs from Python version to Java version is already in the java version.

Novità

BrickUtils migrerà al linguaggio Java. A partire dal rilascio 0.2.0.0 la versione in Python non sarà più aggiornata. La versione Java è già disponibile per test, ma è da considerare instabile.

La versione Java contiene le funzioni necessarie ad importare i cataloghi dalla versione Python.

With BrickUtils you can quickly build your brick catalog and check if you can build a model created with LDD or LDraw.

Status

Program is in “stable” status: you can fully use it and any update will keep your catalog of bricks and sets.
