#195 TECHNIQUES - Advanced hinge usage

For today's technique, we will look at how to use hinges to angle parts, and how to cover the gaps.


Hinges create a natural gap between them that can be filled over easily if they are flat, as its only a 1 studs gap, so plates connect over it as shown. However, when you start to angle the hinge pieces, a gap is created that is harder to fill in and requires plates to be built up as seen in the picture. The MOC shown uses many bricks and plates to fill in the gap, and the result is a stunning curved ceiling that looks very good.
