Idea for a website/database, looking for input
When building the UCS Falcon, I had a few pieces left over that I had no idea where they belonged. This gave me the idea of a website/database that would tell you which instruction step pieces are used in if you have them left over after a build. I know this happened for me with the Death Star too, I had like 2 light gray 2x2 bricks left over and couldn't figure out where I missed them.
Do you think this function would be useful to you? How would it best be implemented? Integrated into another existing website such as Brickset/Bricklink, or Rebrickable? Or something stand alone? Thanks for your ideas and thoughts on this!

Sure there's PDFs of instructions on the net, but there'd be no easy way of going through them to catalogue which pieces were used where. You'd have to do it all by hand. For every page. For every set.
^^^^ I agree it's a great idea (you might even be able to find what set a certain construction of bricks came from with a little more work), but once you take into account all the time and effort it would take, I'd say it's nigh impossible.
Very, very cool!
