If we are fans of building Free Hardware projects, surely you have ever used Lego pieces to build that support or that case. And it is that Lego and its blocks have become an important element of Free Hardware and of course, of children.
Several users have decided to give one more twist and create a repository with all Lego pieces and kits, in order to be able to build ourselves the Lego pieces that we need.
The repository is called PrintaBrick, a repository similar to Instructables or Thingiverse, but unlike these, Printabrick It only contains Lego piece designs, from the simple blocks to the monothematic Lego kits. In the latter, Printabrick stands out positively because we can get ourselves with discontinued kits or simply rebuild that kit or game that we have at home and which is missing several pieces that we have lost.
Printabrick offers us free designs to print the blocks and pieces we need. All these models offer us in STL format to be able to print with our 3D printer. In addition, many models have two versions: a monochrome version and a multi-color version.
This is ideal for those looking to have a copy of the original Lego block or piece or simply to those looking for blocks to create a stand or a case for a Raspberry Pi. It is also a good method for those who do not have enough colored material and want to print a perfect block or kit.
I personally find it very interesting. Not only because of the toy function it has, that is, we can complete our Lego kits; but also because of the possibility of creating printed supports for our projects or simply for our Raspberry Pi. Surely in a short time, Printabrick will become an important repository like Instructables or Thingiverse is now.
