stupid project I’ve thought about making for years:
You go through and index your lego box and enter in which bricks you have, and it calculates which sets you probably had.
it’s basically a big nostalgia tool for all us nerds in our 30s who have those few distinctive parts but can’t remember which set they got them in because they were only 5 at the time.
Thanks to @ProfBrickkeeper I now know that this pretty much already exists:
twitter.com/Rebrickable
you tell it what pieces you have and it finds official or unofficial sets you can build with them.

Neat!

I don’t know if it can do near-matches (like “you have 98% of the pieces you need for this set”) because you may have lost some parts, but it’s definitely a big step towards what I was wanting

[WayBack] Rebrickable (@Rebrickable) | lets you easily find official or custom sets you can build using your existing LEGO sets and provides all building instructions:

  • [WayBack] Rebrickable | Rebrickable – Build with LEGO

    Combine your old LEGO® to build new creations

    What can you build?

  • [WayBack] About Rebrickable | Rebrickable – Build with LEGO

    What is Rebrickable?

    Rebrickable will show you which LEGO sets you can build from the sets and parts you already own. You can choose from official LEGO sets or thousands of MOCs (My Own Creations) submitted by hundreds of designers. All MOCs include building instructions and full parts lists.

    I HAVE THIS

    +

    AND A BUNCH OF THESE

    =

    I CAN BUILD THIS, YAY!

    Unless you have a LOT of sets, you will usually be missing a few pieces. In these cases Rebrickable will show you exactly what you are missing and even provide suggested sets that you could buy which will get you those pieces – effectively showing you how to buy two sets for the price of one!
