Brick Geometry Presentations

In 2008 at BrickCon in Seattle, I gave a presentation called “Half-Plate Offsets” about some LEGO building techniques that I had discovered/developed. In 2013, I dusted off those slides and added more things, renaming it “Brick Geometry,” and presented it at Bricks by the Bay and BrickCon, and the following year at Brickworld in Chicago. Each time I’ve made some corrections and additions to the slides. I continued to give updated versions of the talk at various events each year through 2015, and picked it up again as of 2017 when I went to an event in Portugal, and again at BBTB in 2018. For the virtual online BrickCon in 2020, I combined the two talks into a single presentation, since I wouldn’t have the luxury of showing my models in person which takes more time than just presenting the slides. Here are all the versions given so far.

[Latest Update 06/25/2022: added 2021 & 2022 Bricks by the Bay editions of Brick Geometry, which include slides from Bricks in All Directions.]

In addition, in 2015 I debuted a second talk, “Studs in All Directions.” I gave the talk without any slides at Bricks by the Bay, just using some of my models as props. For BrickCon, however, I put together a small deck of slides to present along with the models. I updated it further for BBTB in 2018.

For the virtual online BrickCon in 2020, I combined the two talks into a single presentation, especially since this talk involves more in-person demonstration of my models. Since then this content has been included in the Brick Geometry talk (at Bricks by the Bay 2021 online and 2022 in-person). Here are all the versions of this presentation when it was presented on its own:
