For the first time in a few years I gave my Brick Geometry and Studs On All Sides talks at the Bricks by the Bay LEGO convention in Santa Clara, CA. I updated both presentations for this event by adding a few new pages in each one. Here are the updated versions of the files if you’d like to look at them:
Let me know if you’d like to see me deliver one of these talks at an event near you! Enjoy the information, and happy building!
Just got back from Seattle where I attended the latest edition of BrickCon, their annual Adult Fan of LEGO (AFOL) convention. I had a great time – played some games, won some free LEGO, and got a trophy (Best Sculpture) for my Teddy Bear.
I also gave an updated version of my “Brick Geometry” talk, and a new presentation on “Studs on All Sides” which talks about techniques I’ve used in models such as the Teddy, Easter Bunny, Q*bert, etc. (Which reminds me, I really should do a photo shoot of Teddy Bear and blog about him.) Here are the slides to the talks:
I didn’t take any photos at BrickCon, but plenty of other people did. I’ll post links to them here as I find them:
I gave my Brick Geometry presentation yet again at Bricks by the Bay this year, and here’s the slides. The slides are the same as last year’s BrickCon version, but I’ll be updating it to present at BrickCon this year. You can download a copy of the slides here: brick-geometry-bbtb2015
The slides from my Brick Geometry Presentation from BrickCon 2013 (PDF) are now available online. In this presentation I described several techniques involving half-plate offsets (based on my Half Plate Offsets talk from BrickCon 2008, but updated with some new examples) as well as a discussion of Pythagorean right triangles (e.g. 3-4-5 triangles) and how to use these to make a truss type structure in LEGO. Enjoy!
