[Ed. Note] The first one I would print is Applejack.

    Good luck getting them to fit right. Even the knock-off molded ones can't hold the tolerances for good fit. Perhaps with a much higher grade printer.

    The spacelike surfaces of time foliations can have a cusp at the surface of discontinuity. - P. Hajicek

    My son has some not-LEGO blocks that fit together and don't look like they need high tolerances (Mega Blocks I think it is). Each piece is about the size of 10 or so single LEGO bricks though, so that might not be good if you want to build larger structures with lots of bricks.
