in 3D isn’t easy! But 2D can
help you speed up your LEGO Worlds creations!
This is a Lego Worlds 2D drawing template, which can be used in any drawing program. I recommend the free and easy to use: Paint.net.
This method will save you a lot of time, since drawing and editing is made in 2D, then the pixels/blocks get counted in-game to place the LEGO blocks in their correct place.
present in the test.lxf have been finished using this
The 2D drawing (pre-made in paint) assumes you draw the center layer of the 3D model
or a 2D layer that will represent the model in it’s full dimensions.
After that, just place the blocks counting in-game.

get to it:
1- Draw your model first in a paint program. After you're done, open both the drawing and the game. Then,
2- Count the blocks you drew from paint, then count and click them into the game.
One more advantage of this template is that you can assume (rounded up) real world measures!!!
In a classic 4x2 LEGO brick, its width is 1 meter, Which in the template = 8 pixels wide.
each 3 vertical stacks of bricks = 1 meter.
A normal brick’s height also = 3 (1x1) plate bricks.
If you want to increase the template’s canvas size in meters:
Width: increase by 8 pixels wide which equals the width of 4x2 bricks (1 meter wide).
Height: increase by 9 pixels tall which equals to 1 meter tall.
The gradient blue rectangle you see on the lower left of the canvas
is a brick representation of a minifig. It is composed of 4 stacks of 3 stud bricks
Its total height is equivalent to 1,33.3 meters (133.3 centimeters) – yes, he's a shortie!
his width is 3 studs or 75 centimeters
each stud is 25 centimeters wide in-game! That is why if you makeprision bars with a 1x1 brick it will look too thick!
It is easier to measure the width then the height! as each plate/cover is 11.1 centimeters tall (height).
The minifig has also been drawn in just as it’s own representation.
The pixel formula:
each 2 pixels wide = the width of a 1x1 plate brick
each 1 pixel tall = the height of a 1x1 plate brick
If you place only 3 stacks of 4x2 bricks,
you will have a 1 meter square (wide and tall) of bricks!
So, 9 1x1 vertically placed plates/covers = 1m (as can be counted in the purple stacked bricks above)
3 1x1 vertically placed 1x1 plate/cover = 1 normal 1x1 brick height = 33.3cm
1 plate/cover height = 11.1cm
So, each LEGO land layer you see on your sandy beach or flower biome is 11.1cm tall in real world :)
4x2 brick = 1m
3x2 brick = 75cm
2x2 brick = 50cm
1x1 brick = 25cm
a normal 1x1 brick is equivalent to 3 1x1 plate bricks vertically stacked, so it's height = 33.3cm
This is great for calculating, doing real world models and landscape work!
