LEGO Digital Designer

LEGO Digital Designer was used at the start of the virtual model production for the Lego Movie.

LEGO Digital Designer (LDD)  is a free program for Mac and Windows with which you can build models in a 3D computer aided design (CAD) like manner using virtual LEGO bricks. You have a build mode and build plate on which you construct your models, a view mode to view and take screen shots against different backgrounds and a building guide mode where the program will automate a set of steps to make the model. You can also upload and share your models in the Lego Digital Designer Gallery

LEGO Digital Designer is a great way to document, save and share your LEGO designs.

We have modelled some of our simple Lego Mindstorms designs  with LDD and shared them in the LDD Gallery here

We have  recorded the LDD Build guide for some of  our simple Lego Mindstorms designs - see below
