    @Cam_n_Stu Sure I can look into those. They don't seem to have official set numbers, are there any commonly in use already or should I make them up :)

    @rebrickable I don't believe they have set numbers as they were never released as sets. Perhaps you could treat them as MOCs by LEGO themselves?

    Really cool! One question: Might it be better to remove the "brick buckets" from the results?
  • rebrickablerebrickable Member Posts: 36
    @Cam_n_Stu - Don't think I'll combine them with the other MOCs, will probably just give them CLUB-001 numbers or similar and bundle them with the other official LEGO sets.
    @ParkGrades - Yes! That's what it does, but I must have missed one :) Which set number did you notice?
  • ParkGradesParkGrades Member Posts: 106
    I see 4014 and 7793.

    Thanks, will fix.

    I would love to have a go at this @rebrickable, but I'm not sure how to import my set list?

    Where do I find the file that I need to import?

    Phenomenal!
  • rebrickablerebrickable Member Posts: 36
    @wussbird After you sign up click the Preferences link at the top right to view your set list. From here there is a link to import your sets from a Brickset (or peeron) export file.
    @prevere Thanks :)

    I love this site, now the boys can build more Star Wars sets without bying more. Set 6077 -1 Knight's Procession & 2 Forestmen's River Fortress photos are switched around. Also set 6077 and 677 are the same set, don't know why TLG does separate numbering for the same set.

    @tommyboa Thanks I'll take a look.
  • wussbirdwussbird Member Posts: 10
    @rebrickable - thanks, I saw that, but when I click the link to import my sets it asks me to choose a file to import. Where on my pc would that be?
  • rebrickablerebrickable Member Posts: 36
    @wussbird - It's the file you export from Brickset via http://www.brickset.com/export/

    @rebrickable - I see you've added a load more sets to rebrickable. Thanks. Time to re-import my set list!
  • rebrickablerebrickable Member Posts: 36
    @Cam_n_Stu - yep, about 400 sets and one moc if I kept track correctly :) If anyone wants to stay informed of the updates I think my facebook page is probably the easiest (I don't like twitter). http://www.facebook.com/pages/Rebrickable/244447922243907

    Wow, loads more sets uploaded now. I'm getting many more sets that are buildable now!

    For your information a 'bunch of bricks' set seems to have got in to the build now target list though: 4782-2 Creator 200 Piece Box of Bricks - Individual Retail Version (2005). I believe you are generally excluding these from the what you can build results so you might want to tweak that one.
  • rebrickablerebrickable Member Posts: 36
    I've been busy :) Thanks I missed that one, and I'm sure there are others too. I will have to do a more thorough scan of every set once they're all in.

    bump to the top, this is VERY cool!!!

    The only downside is that generally I don't mix sets, so I wouldn't tear apart 6 sets to build one I didn't have.

    All,

    My apologies if this is a much discussed topic, but I am wondering if there is a way to connect the Set inventory functionality of BrickSet with the part inventory functionality of BrickLink.

    Essentially, I would like to be able to automatically identify the pieces i need to buy to build a different set given the inventory of sets I have already entered on BrickSet. Has anyone done this already?

    Thanks!

    Take a look at rebrickable.com, which can import a Brickset set list and do exactly that.

    @tyagel - I've moved your query into the Rebrickable discussion here. Hopefully you'll find what you're looking for.

    Awesome site!
  • phantom78phantom78 Member Posts: 23
    great idea and great site
  • CoolsplashCoolsplash Member Posts: 935
    Amazing site and great idea behind it and lots of hard work, Way to go Rebrickable! and would like to thank my friend @LegoFanTexas for showing me the path to it.
  • rebrickablerebrickable Member Posts: 36
    Thanks everyone for your support! I have plenty of exciting features still to come ;)
  • HuwHuw Brickset Towers, Hampshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 6,946
    ^ Including better Brickset integration, when I get my finger out!! :)

    @andhe Wow thanks for the tip!
    @rebrickable WOW!!! what a fantastic site, when I have some more time I definitely have to sign up, enter some of the sets I own, and try out what other sets (or maybe even other people's MOC's) I can build with the bricks I own. What a wonderful idea of you!

    I have purchased several bulk lots of lego recently, and was wondering if there were any programs where I could upload the pieces I have into a database and see which sets I can build from them (or how close I am to completing others.)

    also rebrickable.com
  • josecafejosecafe Member Posts: 29
    I checked out rebrickable! Thanks. I really like how i can see all the sets I can build plus upload to the other LEGO sites if I choose.
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,270
    ^ yeah its nice as well because it will use non-exact colors to complete things as well so if you just wanted to build something to see how the build was you might be able to with out the right colors. Trying out build techniques etc.

    @josecafe - Please note that I've merged your inquiry here with our active "Rebrickable" discussion. :o)
  • TyoSoloTyoSolo Member Posts: 539
    This is handy. It makes the cost of building multiple sets MUCH cheaper! Once I've entered my parts inventory, I will be using this!

    So I don't know if it exists, I feel that someone it may but I can't find it. I finally got back all my legos from the childhood house. First step I am doing it building all the sets I remember having (Ice Planet, Space Police, Aqua series, MONORAIL!!!). After that I want to inventory the extra pieces I have (Which is 2 buckets worth) and try to see if I have any other sets, or close to a complete set with the parts I have. Does anyone know of a manager that will allow me to keep records of all the loose pieces, and then have a method trying to make complete set with them?

    Thanks

    This is close to what you're asking for:
    http://rebrickable.com/

    I believe you could upload your extra parts as a MOC and then use that to see what else you can build.

    Thanks! It looks like that is what I am looking for. That one never came up when I was searching, so I appreciate it. Hopefully it works out well and I can throw some more sets up on the shelf and in the display.

    @USMCYodz - I went ahead and merged your question here. :o)
