#523 TECHNIQUES: Conical roof with 1x1 cylinders

Today technique is by Nick Runia on Flickr and creates a stunning conical roof design which utilizes the texture created by 1x1 cylinders.

It primarily uses the 2x2 octagonal plate to connect 1x1 modified plates with clips. These clips then attach to 1x1 cylinders and 1x2 jumper plates to build out the roof. Check out his post on Flickr here:

This technique can be simplified but to look just as great, as has been done by on Flickr. He just uses hinges but perfectly positions them to create a roof with no gaps. Check out his post here:
