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:
An effort to relicense the community Datsville project under a modern, open software license; as well as to standardize the model parts and related scripts to make it easier for people to expand the project and create new scenes and animations. I also made some tests to see if I could create an tactical RPG based on the project using RPG Maker. They are available on GitHub as well.
Early build showing off layered sprites.
Combat testing.


POV-Ray Road Macros v2.5.5:
Some POV-Ray macros for creating LDraw-style roads. Included are scripts to create circular (or elliptical), spiral and Bezier-shaped roads, as well as a special script for creating road intersections.
LDraw Grids & Axes v1.0.0:
An assortment of coordinate axes and grids in *.LDR format based on ones I obtained elsewhere. Use them to orient models within a scene's local coordinate system.
