    This is a top-notch addon that does exactly what it says (and it does so exceedingly well). It's easy to use, packed full of features, and makes creating Lego-style animations a snap. You can manually set your resolution up or down to get just the right amount of fidelity. You can pick from a variety of brick types and even use custom objects. If you're not making an animation, you can bump up the Connectivity settings to create a true Lego model that can be built with physical bricks. The LDraw export ensures that your model can be imported into any of the open source Instruction Sheet and Part List generators. This makes Bricker a fun alternative to 3D printing. Christopher (the developer) provides exceptional support, responding quickly to emails and answering questions/providing bug fixes which is above and beyond what you'd expect for an addon in this price range. I can't recommend this enough. If you have any interest in making Lego-style models out of your 3D objects, you can't go wrong with this wonderful addon.

    Being completely new to Blender I have been trying to find new and unique ways to implement my 3D work into compositing and After Effects while learning the 3D process at the same time. So I picked up Bricker and AssemblME and I haven't looked back. Both programs are very intuitive and simple to use even for someone as day one as me. Great product will certainly be using it where I can! Christopher has been so fantastic, responding to any questions I have had. Very Pleased to add this to my add-ons!

    This is an *amazing* extension. The author has clearly put a lot of work into it, responds to support requests and updates keep coming. Combined with AssembleMe, I've created some really cool stuff.

    The only thing missing is documentation. I have no idea what some of the controls do and was very frustrated the first time using it b/c all I would do was tweak settings hoping to figure out a solution. As a software author myself I know that a product is only complete with proper documentation, so when the author creates it, I'll very happily up my rating to a 5.

    [Update 2019] The author has added documentation to his already fantastic product. It's a 5 star add-on!

    Super fast and amazing! I have already made some very cool things with this and I can't wait to make more! A few tutorials would be nice because the interface can be a bit confusing, but other than that it is fantastic! https://media.giphy.com/media/Yk1SNDRSQ7Wtyt4fjl/giphy.gif

    Just bought and I am already happy with the stunning results.
    I also got the "plastic material library" and I am encountering a lot of "cuda crashes"
    I, until now, just applied some material of the library on a bricked model and it crashes. Some tips to know about it?
    Thanks in advance

    An amazing addon! I love they way you can make Lego smoke from this especially.
    I've always like rendering my LDD models and such so I do find this particularly enjoyable.
    I'll always be looking forward to new updates and videos. Keep it up!
