Ben Duguid works in London, UK as Head of Back-end Development for Hugo & Cat, mostly delivering web sites on various Microsoft based platforms.

He has run internal training sessions helping other developers get up to speed in the technologies he knows about, and tries hard to get others to do the same.

For what it's worth he is an MCPD in ASP.NET 3.5, and is currently a Pro-Tem Mod on LEGO Answers

comment Is it possible to build Lego bricks with a makerbot replicator 3D print?
Good question - I really doubt that the precision of the printers are anywhere close to actual LEGO bricks.

I can't imagine that the tolerances would be as good as LEGO's - would probably be on a par with MegaBloks ;)

comment Is there a way to draw LEGO figures using Blender?
You can also use the Lightwave (.obj) exporter from LeoCAD and import that into Blender - note also that LeoCAD has the "Minifig Wizard" allowing you to create your Minifigs directly in there.
