#1120 TIPS: SNOT pieces - How to classify and identify them

In today's post we'll be looking at the most common SNOT pieces and classifying them.

But first, what is SNOT? It stands for Studs Not On Top, and simply means that you are building sideways or at an angle; i.e. not just straight up.

SNOT pieces allow you to do this and can be classified into 3 main areas: modified bricks, modified plates and brackets. You can use this post to not only learn what to call each piece, but to search for them on Bricklink (the easiest way to do this is the part number).


W/ = with

1x2 - 2x2 means that the plate is 1x2 but the sideways studs are 2x2

93274 = Bracket 1 x 2 - 2 x 4
