Not necessarily faster, but more precise, since you can get every single particle in the XY plane revealed (remove the 100* part and extend your sequence to 10000 frames and you will get ONE LEGO block per frame). With a Vol.Select, you can do one Z row at a time, but it is tricky to reveal pieces within the XY plane...

What is even crazier, when I decided to learn how to write plugins with the SDK 7 years ago, the first thing I wrote was a LEGO Operator for PFlow.
It was fast, but nowhere as powerful as the combination of Krakatoa and Frost...
Now get the F off my lawn!
