Grown-up engineering transforms a childhood favorite. An 8.5-foot LEGO dinosaur may be for kids, but creating one takes a lot more than a small pamphlet with numbered instructions.
LEGO used a combination of 3D modeling and its own proprietary software before constructing piece-by-piece virtual versions of the large-scale creations.
By constructing digital prototypes of its exhibits, LEGO can assess ideas for structural feasibility, create realistic construction schematics, and move easily into fabrication.
