Scaffolding with technic beams

This is a large but durable technique. Using beams is a good way to create structural integrity when you need scaffolding for e.g. a SHIP, but it's also easy to get out of system. This relationship prevents that, while still enabling a 180 degree stud rotation. Since there are many different beam sizes this technique is pretty scalable.

To find the different pieces needed for this technique you can search LEGO's online Pick-a-Brick for the design ID's. We link other market places directly on each individual piece page, which you can find below.
