Rebrickable will show you which LEGO sets you can build from the sets and parts you already own. You can choose from official LEGO sets or custom made MOCs (My Own Creations) by many different designers. All MOCs include building instructions, some of which are even better than the official LEGO ones!
For example, Nathanaël Kuipers 2000+ piece Supercar can be completely built from just the 8458 and 8466 Techic sets:
Unless you have a LOT of sets, you will usually be missing a few pieces. In these cases Rebrickable will show you exactly what you are missing and even provide suggested sets that you could buy which will get you those pieces - effectively showing you how to buy two sets for the price of one!
Save money on buying LEGO by mixing up your current sets to build others. Rebrickable uses powerful algorithms to calculate what other sets/MOCs you can build from your existing sets and loose parts. If you don't have exactly the right ones, it will show close matches and can perform some fuzzy color matching logic.
Did your favourite designer just publish a 1000-part masterpiece but you can't afford to buy all those parts? Use Rebrickable to show you which parts you already have and help you to order the rest.
There are plenty of modifications to official sets to be found such as Jurgen's Ultimate 8043 and Ultimate 42009, Beleu's Motorized 8081 Extreme Cruiser, and Efferman's Motorized 8109 Flatbed Truck. With just a few more parts you can deck out your favourite set with extra features!
Every MOC on Rebrickable has a list of parts and building instructions, so you can be sure that anything you find here is buildable! You may not have every part required, but the beauty of LEGO is that you are encouraged to improvise!
Import your LEGO 3d CAD files and Rebrickable will generate a parts list for them. Using the Private MOCs page you can then export the list into a number of alternate formats. You can also find out how much the parts cost and who has them in stock through our integrated parts stores. Or maybe you just want to see if you already have the parts to build it!
My name is Nathan Thom and I created Rebrickable in mid 2011, shortly after coming out of my dark age. After buying some large Technic sets, I figured it must be possible to build some of the smaller ones with the thousands of parts I had. After creating a database to solve the problem, I thought it would be useful to build a website that everyone could use. That turned out to be an even harder challenge but eventually I got it working and Rebrickable was born :)
If you want to know more about me, you can check out my Linked In page.
Rebrickable is big enough now that I can't run it on my own. There is a great team of admins who help with the day to day activities of running a large website.
Special mention needs to be given to some previous admins (now retired from LEGO):
There are many third party tools that have helped make Rebrickable possible.
