A question of Technic Technique

5 posts in this topic

Can anybody help me please?

I'm trying to connect each of the five corners of a pentagon to the centre using Technic, but resulting in an axle hole in the centre. - Is there a piece I could use to do this?

Like so.

I'll be using it in a MOC of mine, coming soon (hopefully).

Mmm, five is a hard number for TECHNIC. Does the center connection need to be symmetrical, and how small does it need to be?

It just needs to have an axle hole in the very centre (+ or o). That's all.

I guess it has to be a one-layer-solution? Meaning not two bricks like

over each other.

Difficult. :-/

Try peeron.com and type "technic connector" in the search field. Does any of that pieces help?

Well I really wanted a one-layer solution and this part

could have helped, but it would have meant a 2.5 height, so it won't really work. The trouble is, I was using a pentagon-based pyramid, and so each different layer would have to be a different distance form the corners...

I think I might turn to a hexagon, but it will ruin my colour scheme (limited parts |-/ ) and will look slightly stranger...

Ah well.

Thanks anyway. :-)
