A long time ago (in this galaxy, I know you were thinking it), I was thinking of creating some surrealistic compositions by mixing a photograph with computer generated elements. At the time I wanted to have Legos rain from the sky but to make that happen would be expensive in real life. Fortunately there’s LegoCAD. I exported a few blocks as OBJ files from there and imported them into Blender. From there I duplicated the number of blocks until there were several hundred, set the umbrella as a hard body, and had the Legos fall on to the umbrella. The render of the post is from that experiment. Enjoy!
