I rebuilt the model as best as I could in Lego Digital Designer using only parts from that particular set. There were a few parts where I couldn't actually find a piece in that set so I used a replacement part that exists in the set. LDD File PDF Instructions + Part List

Based on the parts, it looks suspiciously like an internal part bag for 10232 Palace Cinema - which means there's no specific instructions to make something with just those parts - the whole set of instructions can be found online. To clarify - a set like Palace Cinema will have a number of "Numbered" bags that correspond to part of the building ...

You can find downloadable copies of LEGO instructions for any set (there might be a few exceptions but not for standard retail sets) at the LEGO web site: https://wwwsecure.us.lego.com/en-us/service/buildinginstructions

The instructions for that model are not included in the set.1 Youtube user BrickTsar LEGO® Collector rebuilt the model using the box as reference. The image below shows a screenshot from the video linked at the end of this post, it might be clearer to you how it was built. The model he made isn't an exact like for like copy of the model shown on the set,...

After testing several software (and figuring out quite a few are not compatible with each other), I tested Leocad, and was able to easily create models and generate instructions. In Leocad 0.82, going through "Print Preview…" and then printing to PDF generates simple and clean instructions. http://raphink.github.io/lego_models shows the results I got with ...

Take pictures! The easiest way is to take photographs of each step as you build. No special software is required, you can just step through each building stage by flicking through photos. If your tablet has a camera you will have everything you need to create and view the instructions. You might want to include which parts you need for the next step in ...

I think LEGO has got you fooled here - they do not mention that the pictured model has specific alternate building instructions, they just mention that there are a lot of building instructions online. Pretty sad of course and I agree they do make you think this set has other building instructions for the pictured model. I've looked at LEGO/service, BrickSet,...

One easy way of getting a list of parts from individual items in a set is to download a fan-made copy of the set made in LEGO Digital Designer and remove the parts you don't need. Eurobricks has a big list of sets that are available to edit in LDD, you may find some inconsistencies depending on which parts are available in the softwares library. Most ...

18677 IS in latest LDD update (mid march 2016), issued after announcement of LDD end of support... Just make sure to be in LDD Extended mode to find it, along with other plates.

Google deprecated support for NPAPI in April this year, and removed it completely this month in Chrome 45. LEGO has historically used Unity Web Player for a number of their online 3D games which has certainly been impacted by this change, and while this is not specifically the case here (the building instructions are "Powered by Autodesk Technology", ...

I'm assuming you are referring to LEGO set 70548. I don't have this set, but checking the instructions online, I think this is what you want to know: The black hair piece is optional. You can make your minifig wear the helmet or the hair piece, but not both at the same time. The pilot fits inside the model, as can be seen on picture #31 of the first ...

The best software for this is the Lego Digital Designer (LDD for short) but it is not available for Linux by default. Users have mixed results when trying to run it by WINE or using virtual machines. There is another recommendation, which requires more manual work though. It uses Lego Instruction Creator (LIC), but it is a stagnant project and was buggy ...

The author of this Ideas project might be able to give you a copy of the instructions for his model.

I think this has to do with the fact that part 18677 Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Pin Hole on Bottom is a new part (has only been in production since 2015) whereas its counterpart 11458 Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Pin Hole on Top has been around since 2013. Couple that with the fact that LEGO recently announced the end of maintenance for LEGO Digital Designer (...

I have an alternate plan you might consider: Reference: here's the entry for that set on Brickset It looks like there aren't many custom pieces used in this set, as seen in the parts list You could download the actual instructions for the real set, and then just swap out some pieces, removing the color combinations that you don't have I hope this helps ...

LIC is the Lego Instruction Creator it's a tool some people use to make instructions. I would say it's for "power users" though, so it may not be for you. If I were you I might change the title of this question to something indicative of your search for someone to do this work for you. As you are probably aware, there are Lego forums which are devoted ...

The retail box does not show the usual "+Power Functions" decorations on it so I doubt there are official instructions. Time to get your build on.

You are looking at 2 bags from set 70808 - Super Cycle Chase. This is the only LEGO Movie set that has the robo SWAT cop head, the fence, the white 1x2x2 panel and the 1x4 plate with 2 studs in it. There are 3 other sets (big enough to have a bag 2 and 3) that have this particular robot police officer head in it, namely: 70819 - Bad Cop Car Chase ...

By using the Brickset list of polybags released by Lego in 2011, I think your bag may refer to the following: 30014-1: Police Helicopter.

The Lego website makes it hard to find, but it's there. (I found this question while trying to find it in fact.) Search for kit number 10667, which takes you to the 10667 kit page Click the "Building instructions" tab below the image... ...which will reveal a single link, "Building instructions". Yes. Clicking that will take you to a page with a box ...

An alternative to Ambo100's method, though with way more manual effort required, but avoiding the LDD installation, is to go to LEGO.com and download the instructions for 7208. Then either write down all the parts used in each individual step, or use the instruction as a guide and build a mock model and then deconstruct the mock model to get the pieces. ...
