LEGO Masters Australia’s Break and Make challenge was one of the toughest builds the contestants have had to face so far; and we had to design the model they had to work with!
The model had to fulfil two purposes- look good as a parrot and contain as much part variety as possible so contestants had lots of different shapes and colours to work with.
While the original prototype was designed by hand, it was then recreated in the Lego Digital Designer (LDD) program so it could be easily mass-produced and we could have a track-able list of every part in the model.
What this means is that YOU can download the LDD file and build the parrot model for yourself! Whether you want to recreate the challenge from the show for yourself, or just want to build the parrot, you can! Don’t worry if you don’t have every part or in the right colours- this is all about getting creative and letting your imagination run free!
Once you have opened the file in LDD, you can create instructions by clicking the view menu and selecting “Building Guide Mode”, or just pressing F7
