Learn how to design and build your own custom set with tips from the experts.

Are you ready to take your LEGO® brick building skills to the next level? Have you ever dreamed of creating your own custom sets made with, in part, genuine LEGO® bricks, but weren't sure where to start? Look no further! We've got all the tips and tricks you need to turn your dream set into a reality.

Gather Inspiration

First things first, it's important to gather inspiration. What is it that you're passionate about? A favorite movie, book series, or activity? Gather reference materials and see if the model has been created before. This can give you a great launching off point for your own design, or you can choose to improve upon an existing model and make it your own.

Create a Concept

Use a drawing or digital building program like Studio to lay out a simple framework for your set. This will help you visualize what you want your set to look like. Digital software is especially useful as it allows you to make changes and iterations to your model efficiently. You can find tutorials on using Studio here

Design Your Set

Choose the bricks you'll need and either use bricks on hand or design digitally. There are plenty of digital tools available, depending on your preference. At Playwell Bricks, we often use digital design to ensure we have all the necessary parts for our custom models. This article lists many of the different digital design programs

Improving the Design

As you begin building, you'll likely find ways to improve your creation. There are countless techniques to make your build look better, function more smoothly, or be more stable. The more time and thought you put into your design, the better your set will become. And the great thing about building with bricks is that it's easy to change and adapt your model as you go.
