It took a long time and a bit of research but in the end I finally did it. What is it? Why, it's a printable LEGO ice mold! Fill it with water, toss it in the freezer, and about half an hour later, you've got some sweet LEGO ice cubes!

Specs: 96.0mm x 99.0mm x 13.0mm, well within the Makerbot's capabilities
Yields 10 blocks per batch.


  1. Print on the Makerbot. It is already proportioned at the proper dimensions for your bot!
  2. Wash it out with some water...nothin' like the taste of scrap ABS in your drinks.
  3. Fill with water and stick in the freezer. Leave it for ~1 hour.
  4. Take it out. Now, you may need to smack it a bit, but that's alright because ABS is remarkably durable. Eventually your LEGO-Shaped ice pieces should pop out and be ready for a drink!

does it HAVE to be ABS?

Are you asking me to do that or are you just making a note?

Sorry. Making a note. I have a 4x file to share because the 8x was too big. want to add it here?


My apologies to anybody who tried to download it in the last few minutes. The file is now fixed, up, and running.

I didn't even know what 3D printing was in 2010
