The Design Process

This LEGO® Stargate MOC was a unique creation for me, because it is the only MOC I have designed digitally, ordered the pieces and then built. I accomplished this by breaking it down into modules. Each module either had a chevron or was blank. I then designed these modules digitally and ordered the missing parts.

The design process was straightforward because I only designed one of each module, instead of the full Stargate. Designing a ring of that size in any LCAD program is challenging. I made the decision to not add the glyphs because I try to avoid making custom stickers as they can look tacky. I intend to look into printing the bricks in the future

The Stargate has all 9 chevrons, equally placed around the ring – another challenge as it is not an even number that matches the number of modules.
