Lego

Engineers have to model stuff before they build it, as a way of testing the design before a lot of time & money are spent on the project. So I was doing a web search for open-source software that can be used for modeling.

Well what’s the one modeling tool that every American has used? Legos! And they’ve put together Digital Designer. You design your project in Digital Designer, it’ll generate a parts list for you! Building a new car? Why not model it with Legos before sending those plans over to the manufacturing plant?

My kid is going to have this software, I can tell you that!
