The blog

This blog is about Lego and Linux:
Brick building at its finest and Linux enthusiasm at its best. If you are that type of geek, then this is the place for you!

This website is dedicated to my personal work and creations as a Lego enthusiast and model designer as well as being a Linux lover.

Lego creations

I have been playing with Lego bricks ever since I can remember... Possibly since I was 4 years old. At some point, I grew up, found new interests and still kept them at the back of my mind, getting ideas, wanting to build some more, but never really could due to the lack of extra money or just the lack of time.

In 2001, that all changed - I had finally found the tools to do so: LeoCAD or MLCAD and LDView (running on the LDraw parts database) are the only tools I have been using ever since, to create the models you will witness in my gallery. The scale and part restrictions I impose on myself are part of the challenge of always building better, with less bricks - it also makes it more fun than simply piling up the parts onto one another. ^_^


For those of you who run a Linux based distribution, you can now visit the LDraw on Linux page or the 'Getting Started - Linux' LDraw Wiki page to find all the necessary and up-to-date information and resources to get your computer set up and editing virtual models and instructions in no time!


Care to get a better idea of what virtual Lego model editing is like? Want to know how I made this website and which techniques I use to create my models? You can go over to the Sketchfab Blog and read up on the 4 part editorial I wrote to get you started in no time!


Questions and comments are always welcome: Feel free to browse through and contact me for any of the model files you would like to request.

Many thanks to Travis Cobbs and Peter Bartfai for providing help with the LDView and LDView OSMesa modules and packages, which provide all the beautiful renders for each of the models listed below as well as Leonardo Zide, LeoCAD's creator for his outstanding multiplatform editor and his assistance! Enjoy!
