Swooshable makes you a better LEGO builder
Swooshable makes you a better LEGO builder. We collect resources, create tutorials and tools, keep tabs on the community and much more to make you the best builder you can be. Sometimes we're silly, most of the time we're useful - but always 100% about LEGO.
This site has existed since 2010, when I - Linus - built a small randomizer to test my coding abilities. It was eventually released into the community as The Fadmasher. A lot of work during several years later, I'm proud to see that Swooshable has become a great LEGO resource. If you want to become a better builder - come to Swooshable.

- The Brothers Brick - oldie but goldie from when Swooshable started
Updates, development and funding
Our mission is to build a structured library of techniques, tips and resources. Need set information? You head to Brickset. Instructions, or alternative builds? Rebrickable. Techniques? Swooshable. I'm the first to admit that the site has so much more it must do, but at the same time I'm very proud of what we already are.
This is a long term mission, but I'm in it for the long haul. The site is run as a side project, so work, family and other obligations has to be a priority. Some periods I make lots of updates, some periods none. This schedule could be improved with additional funding. If you want to support the site financially I'd be happy to talk to you.
The obligatory disclaimer
Swooshable turns ordinary people into awesome LEGO builders. We host and share many different types of material, all owned by the respective creators. There's a lot of awesomeness here, but remember: Swooshable is not affiliated with The LEGO Company or The LEGO Group.
I am Linus, and I build Swooshable
I'm a Swedish web guy who also happens to be an AFOL. There's nothing better than creativity. If people create stuff our world will be more fun. Easy as cake.
That's why Swooshable got started and why I keep devoting a large chunk of my time to the site. By making it easier for everyone to discover new techniques, new instructions or just get inspiration I'll get rewarded by enjoying new creations.
As an AFOL I'm first and foremost a builder. Swooshable consumes a good chunk of my LEGO time, but my secret man cave/LEGO workshop is there for me when I need to build. I also moderate LEGO Techniques and wrote for The Brother's Brick many years ago. Here's my Swooshable contributor page.
