A LEGO builder makes 3D printing not only entertaining, but efficient and easy. LEGO could be the most versatile children’s toy the world has ever seen, and this 3D printer proves that.

Fabrickation is a 3D printing application that replaces small material with LEGO pieces for block-filled creations. Fabrickation won’t replace every single part of your creations into LEGO, because that would be counter-intuitive. What it does do is shortcut the less important parts by letting you build with Lego from the start.

This method is said to cut down the 3D printing time by a significant margin, about 2.44 times to be exact. The program itself looks like Photoshop and is intuitive and detailed enough to let you craft anything you want fairly easily. In the video, they even make a pair of Lego goggles to show the LEGO builder off.
