ATLAS LEGO model – Statistics

The initial (though not complete) 3D design of the large model took about 48 hours, while the construction of the first brick model, including a few iterations, took about 33 hours. The small model took a few hours to design and slightly less than an hour to build.

As of now, we have in total 61 large and 111 small models. The models have been shipped to 58 institutes in 16 different countries around the world. Not including overhead, this corresponds to more than 550,000 pieces being shipped to the various places.
