Lego Projects

Most of the projects on this page were created for or using LDraw, a freeware virtual Lego modeling program, and POV-Ray, a freeware ray-tracer. In addition to the images below, I also have a Flickr photostream with many of my renders.

Datsville Relicense Project:
A Google Code project intended to relicense Datsville under a modern, open license. A secondary goal is to update and standardize the model parts and related scripts to make it easier for people to create brand new scenes and animations — or even import the model into third-party applications.
