Lego car At LEGO World 2012, Objet will demonstrate how 3D technology is used in the design stage of LEGO products to create prototypes of LEGO elements. Objet will exhibit printed samples, including LEGO Minifigures and LEGO bricks.

Kenneth Wested Laursen, head of the LEGO Prototyping Department, comments on the process, "The LEGO brick is born digital on a computer as a CAD drawing and is converted into a physical brick during the manufacturing processes. The Objet 3D printer is a critical component in the LEGO development phase. It helps us in getting physical elements for checking the design, build-ability and functionality at a very early point in production."

LEGO World 2012 will run February 16th to 19th in Bella Center, Copenhagen.
