It's actually fairly easy to print your own Lego pieces using a 3D printer--I mean, just look at all this kooky stuff we printed. But who made it so you could only print regular Lego bricks?
Bird House is a new Lego Cuusoo project that doesn't just incorporate regular old blocky bricks. Instead, it's made of 3D-printed twigs that have nubs and divots that allow them to interlock with Lego bricks. The twigs are also printed with their own interlocking Lego studs that create an interlocking façade that resembles M.C. Escher's work.
Like all Lego Cuusoo projects, if 10,000 people put their support behind the Bird House project, Lego will consider making it into an actual set, so if you like what you see, be sure to give this idea some love.
