There are a number of producers of custom LEGO compatible pieces, how would one add such a custom piece to the LDD software, or otherwise make use of them?

  • Anybody at all? Not even a mention of what 3d format is being used?

    Do you mean Lego Digital Designer?

  • I believe that is the current iteration. I am speaking specifically of the software available from the Lego company.

    I believe it should be possible in most LEGO CAD applications, but LDD being a LEGO product it's unlikely they would officially support this type of feature. That's not to say it isn't possible.

...For the record, I am willing to consider answers that address other software as well. But I currently only have the LDD, so am completely unfamiliar to any other software out there. – nijineko

Brinklink offers two programs that could be right up your alley:

  1. Studio 2.0 - A popular alternative to LEGO Digital Designer, and enter image description here
  2. PartDesigner - A side-tweak program to make custom bricks, where you're able to export directly into the Studio 2.0 program. enter image description here
