    Stud.io is Bricklinks response to Lego Digital Designer, and considering that Lego Digital Designer is being less and less supported, it may be a better option. Since Stud.io is made by Bricklink, you can put together and order your set in one app.

    It's even better than LEGO Digital Designer, as there's no limitation in brick/color combination and even includes Lego Friends figures.

    Yes! Mecabricks is a great alternative to LDD, it's actually better in my opinion. It has way more decorations because new parts are added almost every day, It has a better-looking UI and a rendering feature. Mecabricks beats LDD by a mile!
