#858 TECHNIQUES: Creating circular shapes
Circular shapes are hard to make with LEGO bricks but today we're showing you 4 interesting examples and the pieces they use.
The first is by Dennis Tomsen and uses brackets and hinge bricks to position slopes in a circular shape. Moving on to the second, Filler Brick on Flickr uses regular Studs Not On Top bricks to position 3x1 curved slopes and 2x1 slopes with cutout to create the circle. Filler Brick also created the other examples, both of which cleverly use modified plates to angle slopes. The slopes are attached to bricks first to get the perfect spacing, allowing the circular shapes to have as few gaps as possible.
