Making a sphere from LEGO is your first steps in creating sculptures out of LEGO. Here I have included a the .LXF instruction downloads for you of the parts and layout needed to create a red LEGO sphere (you will need to download the LEGO Digital Designer to view them). I have used a total of 572 bricks to make this sphere but you could extend this and make something much bigger. Obviously with LEGO making smooth corners isn’t simple but the bigger the sculpture the smoother it will look.
