How big is your Lego® brick collection?
I haven't done inventory in a while but I estimate my collection to be around 30-35,000 pieces from about 250 sets(most of these are little sets for my armies). Aside from that I also keep an additional 30,000 parts for use in current and future custom kits.

Do you work for The Lego Group?
No. Although I think I would really enjoy working there. If the company ever goes public I intend to plan an acquistion strategy to takeover the company and right all the wrongs that they've been committing in their product line the past few years.

Are all the models kept, or disassembled?
Almost all of my prototype models are kept and stored in boxes. I usually keep them intact unless the model was used as a design experiment or instructions have already been created for them. In the rare cases that I run out of parts, I will cannibalize some of the older models for parts. Here's a recent family pic:



Can you show me how to make an ______ joint?
Usually the answer is no only because it's difficult to explain things through text. I'll continually be writing more articles on joints as time passes so check the articles section to see if there are any new developments. Other than that, getting one of my instructions can be very helpful.

How many people run the FoundryDX?
One. The set design, parts sourcing, instruction generation, packaging, Bricklink parts store and the FoundryDX website are all done by one person. I do not do this full time although my time investment resembles a second full time job. So if it seems like it's taking forever for the next set of instructions to become available please keep this in mind.

How do I get my site on your links list?
I do not accept solicitations for linking. I only adopted this policy because I do not have the time to constantly update the links section of this site. In addition there are just too many sites out there to list them all. Instead I list only the sites that I personally use. So if you want your site listed make me want to visit it.

I'd like to use your images for a flyer etc. How?
Just email me and ask first. I usually don't have problem with this, i just like to know.





How do I purchase a set or instructions?
First check the store section of this site for availability. Since I only make small runs of custom sets you can simply contact me by email if there are sets available.

Why are the sets so expensive?
Lego® sets are expensive to begin with. To get the selection of parts(plates, hinges, tiles) that I use in my sets you would have to spend 2-3 times more than what is listed. Add to that the hundreds of hours I spend buying, searching, seperating, designing, making, rendering and printing and the sets easily reach the prices I've set. If I really calculated all my time invested I should charge more if anything.

Why can't I find certain sets or instructions at the FoundryDX Bricklink store?

Because they are probably not available yet. Check the instructions page once in a while or join the mailing list so to be notified when things become available.

Why is the FoundryDX Bricklink Store closed?
If it is closed, it is usually is an indication that I am stocking parts or unable to fulfill orders because I am busy. Parts stocking usually happens concurrently with my sets sourcing as I am removing the parts I need and adding the parts I do not need to my store inventory.

How often will sets or instructions be released?
There is no set schedule and releases are usually dependent on how much time I have to work on things. It is a reasonable estimate to expect new products every few months.
