Building Blocks are Blocksworld's easiest, most straightforward building tools. They consist of simple geometric shapes such as Cubes and Pyramids.

Since Building Blocks can be scaled on at least one axis, they are incredibly versatile for building. Entire structures can be created with a simple combination of a few primitive block shapes. For example, a scaled-up Cube can be used as the basis for an entire car frame, or a lengthened Wedge can become a full windshield.

Many Building Blocks are inner or outer corner shapes whose angles match up to simpler Blocks; these can be combined with basic forms to create almost any edge shape desired.
