I made a Jupyter notebook app to create a 3d model of a brick nameplate.

I used it to learn Python, Pandas and programmatically created 3d Models. I printed nameplates for my team at work and for each of my kids.

More like create pixel art with dithering effect from normal digital photos.

This is a tool for building LEGO mosaics.

There are no any LEGO parts on resulted output - flat 2D rectangle with 1:1 sides proportion rasterization with dithering is exactly pixel art technique.

Also, LEGO parts are 3D models (not flat 2D) & not limited to 1x1 tile or plate.
