Brickalo - Can Computers Play With Lego?
#1
Hello LDRAW people
I’d thought I’d share a Lego LDraw based website I’ve created - www.brickalo.com - I’ve been working on getting a Python program to better understand how LDraw Lego parts might fit together.  Brickalo creates unique LDraw .ldr files (and pretty pictures) containing 100 various Lego bricks randomly assembled by a computer (which is harder than it looks!)
It uses the command line version of MODO (which is freely accessible without a full license) to render the images
Let me know what you think
Thanks
Neil

Is there somewhere a tutorial explaining how to do that?

Hi Neil,

I'm curious how my tower looks like but I will never know 'cos I do not enter my email address if I don't have to.

However I also would like to know how the MODO command line script works.

(2018-11-02, 15:39)Hi Willy - I don’t use the email - the site won’t email you - shhhh don’t tell anyone but you can just make up an email!  I quite like the idea of the spam bots filling in the form and getting a rainbow Lego tower!  So bots would be asking a bot to build Lego!  As I’ve said to Phillipe there are some notes on my blog https://cultofthebrick.blogspot.com/?m='1   about Modo and I’ll share my command line script when I’m back in next weekWilly Tschager Wrote:

I've added a post on my blog 

https://cultofthebrick.blogspot.com/2018...-file.html

This provides a link to the modo_cl script file that I use to render the Rainbow Lego Towers that you see on www.brickalo.com

I've also included the command to create 360 turnarounds so that you can also create turnaround movies of your models (I don't use it on Brickalo currently but it's a useful function to know)

Enjoy

Thanks, Neil. Hope to be able to try this soon...
