This is a new building block toy with a unique connectable system. This is designed for 3D pixel art and to rival Lego. This may even evolve into a building set for a popular video game that uses cubes to build structures. The main focus is minimal block types with unlimited potential.

This set includes, the base block, half block, quarter block, panel, C-Clip, L-Clip, T-Clip, and clear block.
The panel can be customized with printed stickers and interchangeable or stickers can be placed on the Base Block to be permanent.
Half Block and Quarter Block can be used in construction and as a base floor.


This has yet to be made. The measurements may need to be adjusted for the final product. I want to design the clips as one item with a ball joint in the middle so that it can be rotated to the angle desired instead of 3 separate pieces, but my skills are limited right now. This will make it a minimalist design but with unlimited potential.

I agree, this is cool.

Thanks for collecting them all into one Thing, to make it easy to download them all.

I look forward to printing them, to see how they work.

What did you model them in? OpenSCAD?

I used sketchup 8. I can't afford a makerbot yet so I'll be interested to see how they turn out. Send pics.

Sure, if I get anything useful I will share it.

Cool idea, but the connector pieces seem a bit flimsy, especially the little nipple on top of the block.

The intention is to be able to build static displays not really for active toys so I assumed he clips would be good enough.

Ah, got it, though you were going for playing blocks.
