Hello I am a complete newbie at Bricklink and Stud.io and I wanted to ask, is
it any way possible to dabble with pre-existing Lego sets. e.g. Upload the Monster
Fighters sets and make a diorama out of it by adding additional figs or set pieces
to the scene?

My apologies if I sound optimistic about this because I haven't built any
legos in quite some time and when I heard of this online platform studio I admit
I gotten curious and I would like to know itmf I can add pre-existing sets to
the studio and build on them.

Thank you for reading this and taking the time to hear this silly newbies hopes
of messing with a virtual lego sandbox to create dioramas.

Hi, first of all the Studio forum is over here: https://forum.bricklink.com/

To succintly answer your question, yes all the official LEGO sets can be imported
in Studio, just not the way you expect them. Instead of a built model, you get
all the parts for it nicely arranged on a plane like you would do on a table
before starting to build the real set if you are into knolling.

Of course, with all the parts present, you can then proceed to build the set
in Studio after the digital instructions you can get from the LEGO.com website.

Sort of. You can import an official LEGO set into Studio, but it's not assembled.
On a Mac, the command to do so is File - Import - Import Official LEGO Set.
However, a great way to learn Studio would be to reconstruct existing LEGO sets.

By the way, there is a dedicated forum for Studio-related questions. It can be
accessed by hovering over the red Studio icon on the top of every page and clicking
on "Studio forum" or by going directly to https://forum.bricklink.com/ You will
probably have better luck getting your Studio questions answered there than here!

Thank you, I'll be sure to ask more questions on that forum. I don't
have a mac and instead I have a HP Laptop.
