DSnot #2

If we play further with DSnot, we find that we can sort of create a cube. It's symmetry should be useful for something - each side is exactly 2x2 studs. The construction is quite sturdy, too.

By rotating the studs so that they point in the same direction you can limit the amount of degrees you get. Just want 180 snot? Then pair the hinges up, two by two.

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.

5 plates
4 studs

Here's a better shot at what we're doing. The hinges are the same size as a standard rod, so you can fit them into the holes in the 2x2 hinge.

Story Time

Steve and John did their job every day, yet they never stopped to consider that their tools might be too small for the task. After all: everything is cool when you're part of a team.

How this works

It's a pretty standard site search, but I'm trying to make it smarter day by day. You can currently search for techniques, parts, sets and contributors. If you can't find what you're looking for contact me and I'll try to help you along and make this better.
