3d printed lego

At 3DSourced we’ve covered everything 3D printing and 3D since 2017. Our team has interviewed the most innovative 3D printing experts, tested and reviewed more than 20 of the most popular 3D printers and 3D scanners to give our honest recommendations, and written more than 500 3D printing guides over the last 5 years.

3D printing Lego bricks and pieces is a great way to expand your collection and make some unique, and even practical, additions to traditional sets.

It’s no wonder people all over the world are learning how to 3D print Legos for themselves, especially since Lego pieces are already made using ABS, one of the most common 3D printer filaments in the world.

3D Printed Lego Example

Here, we’re going to look at some of the coolest and most interesting 3D printed Lego pieces and figures still available as STL files you can download and print today.

3D Printed Lego Bricks

Customizable Text Bricks

While there are some simple designs for basic Lego bricks, these files come with a changeable file that will print bricks of various sizes with whatever text you want.

The included customizer lets you print standard Lego bricks with text such as names, slogans, or emojis, enhancing your project with text-based art.

The files found also include a default style for a simple, textless brick, so adding letters is an optional feature.

3D Printed Lego Bricks With Text

3D printed Lego bricks with text make for excellent additions to a build, and there’s even a separate key fob design for a cool keychain addition or gift.

It’s motorized and uses a pulley system to really move for that extra realistic feel, and is designed to reach up to around 13 feet, but can be altered to reach as long as you like if you’re dreaming a little bigger.

3D Printed Lego Ferry

If there’s one downside to traditional Lego bricks, it’s that they don’t float. Many builders have designed and created their own boat for their figures only to find it sinking to the bottom of the bath in no time.

3D Printed Lego Ferry Boat

In response, this designer made a 3D printed a Lego ferry with included files for floaters to keep this lovely-looking boat above the water where it belongs.

Lego Batman found a new audience with his memorable role in The Lego Movie, so much so that he even got a feature all to himself!

This Lego-compatible Batwing brings one of the caped crusader’s many vehicles to life for your little vigilante.

3D Printed Lego Weapons

Lego figure hands can hold various weapons, from bows to lightsabers. Since few of these items are sold separately, many people 3D print custom Lego accessories to add some attacking flair to their minifigures.

This simple 3D printed Lego bow and arrow is a cool little model for anyone building a warrior. The original STL files were designed on a 1:1 scale and then blown up to fit the large Lego models pictured.

3D Printed Lego Swords

This standard broadsword is great for any fantasy or mediaeval build that adds a little extra detail to your tiny stalwart defenders.

For something a little more creative, there’s also this half-serrated blade designed by a child to make their own playtime more personal. The fancy hilt and katana-style blade shape is an interesting take on the classic weapon.

Christmas Lego Pieces

Practical 3D Printed Lego Models

Not all 3D printed Lego models are for use with traditional Lego sets and minifigs. Many people have taken to designing and printing practical Lego-inspired creations for use around the house.

Usable Lego Cup

This scaled-up Lego cup is a simple design that can be 3D printed with safe materials and used as an actual cup.

Lego Man Storage Container

Every Lego builder needs somewhere to store their bricks. While it’s easy to find or make a box to store your pieces in, there’s always a more creative option.

This giant 3D printed Lego man head has a removable top for storage. While clearly a perfect way to put your Lego away for later, it can be used to store anything from screws to stationery.

Bonus: xshierra’s 3D Printed Lego Piece Collection

Their open, and very reasonably priced, library of designs ranges from creative and new Lego minifigure pieces that you can mix and match to make some unique creations.

There are also designs for 3D printed Lego bricks, beams, vehicles, hair, and even full model kits of Lego bonsai trees and seafaring ships!

How to 3D Print Legos

Finding the right STL files for 3D printing Lego pieces can be challenging if you’re not designing your own.

Cults3D and MyMiniFactory are the go-to platforms for this purpose. They offer the largest range of designs, are almost always free, and feature an easy-to-use search function. 

Once you’ve downloaded an STL file, you can resize it to make Lego-compatible parts that fit your specific project needs.

Perfect Filament

Lego pieces are made from ABS, meaning they’re perfect for recreating with ABS filament. But be warned, the official company has recently been cracking down on unofficial Lego pieces and figures.

If you don’t have access to ABS, other sturdy materials like PLA+ work just as well.

Standard Lego Brick Pack

Measure and Remeasure

All Lego parts need to be exactly the right size. While many of the STL files we’ll talk about here are designed to be on a 1:1 scale with standard Lego collections, it’s still a good idea to double-check the sizes in your preferred editing software to avoid disappointment.

There’s nothing worse than being excited about your new Lego pieces only to find out that they’re a millimeter or two off from fitting the way you want them to. Aside from stepping on them, of course.

Post-Processing

When making Lego pieces, you’ll need to make sure each brick is the right size and shape so they can all fit together. But to make sure they all fit together nicely, you’ll need to take great care in post-processing to get the smooth surface you’ll need for the Lego pieces to all attach the way they’re supposed to.

Each filament will need different kinds of post-processing to get the ideal results. So be sure to look at the recommended steps for your type and brand before you get to work.
