PLEASE NOTE: By default the Brick Building Plan on this page only includes the blocks contained in your uploaded source. Depending on your selected options Bricks might or might not have been added for support or other purposes. Please keep in mind that you might need to add some bricks to comply with the laws of gravity.
General Building Tips:
- Not all 3D Models are built with gravity in mind. We do our best to either generate support structures (if selected) or interlocked plates to make your model stand the test of gravity. However, we cannot guarantee that this will work for all models, in all complexities, and under all circumstances.
- It is a great idea to always have some extra bricks at hand to provide either temporary or permanent support for layers that have large “overhangs” or need support for other reasons.
- One unique feature of our plans are the 3-level interlocked plate layers. These layers combine 3 levels of plates to one layer that has the height of one brick. Since the three levels are interlocked, they provide a great way of building ceilings or irregular support structures. Please keep in mind that a complete layer that contains 3-level plates will always also contain “normal” bricks surrounding the 3-level plates. These bricks are usually added before putting in the completed 3-level plate.
- The best way to build each 3 level plate level is to build it separately on a flat surface and fit it into the model once it is completed. TIP: Having a few 2x1 bricks at hands is very useful when building the first 2 layers of a plate level. You can use them to temporarily fix the (sometimes tiny) plates before they get stabilized by the third layer.
