Hi, I've no idea where to place this topic, so I hope I've got the right place
Anyway, I've been posting my MOCs online as I've been delving into Lego Digital Designer, which most of you know is a program which allows you to build virtual Lego sets. For someone like me who suffers from a lack of parts to work with, LDD is a welcomed program from Lego. There's no limit to how many pieces you can use. There's little limit to what colour of piece you want.
So here's a thing to discuss: Do you prefer LDD over physical MOCing? Why? Is there anyone who has placed down their Lego pieces and wholly use LDD for building?
For me, LDD has taken up my MOCing time for now. The frustration in first learning how to use LDD, and then later in using it can be quite prominent at times ("Why can't this piece fit in here? LDD, WORK YOU"). And there's another problem: missing pieces. Many pieces such many old Bionicle Pieces are not present in LDD. I know LDD caters for parts that are still in production, but even newer HF parts, Furno XL's cloak is missing D:
Finally, there's also the joy of actually fitting the Lego Bricks together BY HAND. Sure, LDD has some nice sound effects when you're selecting or fitting pieces together, but the satisfaction of actually building something by hand, and getting to hold/play it in the end, cannot be reproduced by LDD (since the service is disrupted).
Here are my thoughts, now lemme hear yours! : D
