Building School

LEGO building is a fun endeavor, but it can be tricky to get started on your own models. But hey, that's why you've come to Swooshable! We aim to collect and create resources that make you a better builder. This page guides you through different conepts. We start with essential guides, and gently ease into advanced techniques and technique collections.

I'm personally a big fan of typography - not least fonts created with LEGO bricks. It's not uncommon to have to write when building, and that's when these fonts come in. They are complete with all characters A-Z. We even built a Font Tester so you can test the font before building it.
