Some Existing Angular Parts

After spending much time talking about complicated angle building techniques, let’s look at a much simpler way to build angles. Let’s build it with existing angular parts. Here’s a list of parts with studs that I use to build angles.

angular2

You can build 30° angles with this propeller.

angular3

Double up the hinge construct to create a sturdy structure.

angular4

Technic Angles

Technic connectors are very commonly used to create strong angular connections.

angular6

You can create finer angles when combining these connectors. You get the difference of the two connectors. See below.

angular7

You can make 12.5° and 30° this way.

The turtle in the shadow snapper, shown on the cover picture, is built with a wonderfully done core with lots of angular technic connectors.
