I wanted to make the Lego pieces actual size so that they can engage with actual Lego pieces. To do this, I needed to find out the what the dimensions of a standard Lego was. I found the dimensions on the following site and then extrapolated on them to make the various sized pieces.
Now that I had the dimensions it was time to create them in Easel so that they could be cut out. I designed these so that you would cut out half of the piece and then flip the piece over and then cut out the other side of it. This will result in two of each size piece when done cutting both sides.
I left a thin flange around each piece so that the pieces would remain in place while cutting.
