Hello AFOBs !

In this tutorial we will discuss how you can order parts for your StudIO projects !

StudIO is a software developped by Bricklink and LEGO that lets you create brick designs virtually.
It is aimed to replace the old Lego Digital Designer (LDD).

The software gives you access to a wide range of parts to build your own creations (MOCs).

The software can also generate instructions and nicely render your model.

Now, if your build is complete the only thing that's left to do is to get your parts.

You can either pick parts from your own collection or order them online.

In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to order parts from an alternative brick brand called GoBricks.

This method is 50% cheaper than if you would order parts from LEGO via a website like BrickLink or BrickOwl.

So let's dive right into it !

1. Export part list from Stud.IO

The first step is to export part list from your Stud.IO project.

Go to File > Export As > Export as WL xml and export the part list as XML.

There you go, you have the file containing all the parts needed for the set.

Next step is to buy them !

2. GoBricks VS the common BrickLink method

BrickLink is an online website where you can order LEGO parts from all across the world.
Way too often you are not able to source all your parts from a single store, if not get all your parts.

Moreover, there is a major issue with this technique : price.

Everyone knows how expensive LEGO parts are, even used ones.
Moreover with BrickLink you will have to pay shipping fees for every single store you order parts from.

GoBricks is an alternative brick brand based in China.

They provide high quality plastic bricks and offer a wide range of parts.
You won't see no color difference in comparaison to LEGO and won't experience any problem while assembling bricks.

Unlike BrickLink, you will be able to source all your parts from this single, cheap, high-quality supplier.

GoBricks is about 50% cheaper than BrickLink overall, so you will likely save 50% on the total price of your MOC !

That's incredible !

For all such reasons, GoBricks is a much more convenient way to get your parts.

3. Upload part list on BuyMeBricks

It is now time to order your parts. As GoBricks is based in China, it is not convenient to order bricks directly from them.

The best way and also the cheapest is to source your parts with BuyMeBricks (the parts at BuyMeBricks are 100 % sourced at

Moreover, if the MOC contains very special and rare parts that are not available from GoBricks, they will source this part from another manufacturer.
