#536 TECHNIQUES: Conical roof with brick bending
Today's technique has got to be on of the best looking conical techniques out there; this one was created by Stefan Johannes Kubin and uses the concept of brick bending.
This involves creating a 'bending' surface by using 1x1 studs in between plates and because the studs are round, the plates can be angled very slightly. This creates the smooth curve that makes up the conical roof, and everything curved is connected to flex tubes via clips.
