Why produce an asymmetric brick (which begs for a mirror image version too). Instead just have the triangular part with a single stud which can fit between the existing parts (which are available in a number of lengths).

I still think you shouldn’t be putting the “Lego” logo on these renderings. :tongue:

Thanks for nice comment. I think a brick with single stud is weaker in cluch power when build big things and when stacks high, and difficult to align straight(become hinge).

They looks better with “Lego” logo.  :tongue:

@ bbqqq:  It's your decision, but you're exposing yourself to legal action by using the LEGO copyrighted logo on your renderings.  On the bottom of the http://www.lego.com webpage, it says:

"LEGO, the LEGO logo, DUPLO, BIONICLE, MINDSTORMS, the BELVILLE, KNIGHTS’ KINGDOM and EXO-FORCE logos,
the Brick and Knob configurations and the Minifigure are trademarks of the LEGO Group.

I think it depends on the way this work is exhibited.
If it is clear that these are works aimed to show other users which bricks you would desire from TLG, I think it could be included in the "good faith commentary" clause.
Anyway, it should be a good think to prepare a proper disclaimer.

Wow these parts are fantastic! A definite support on Cuusoo, perfectly executed. By the way I have two ideas. Since you already beat me to suggesting the transparent minifigure wouldnt it be cool to see a transparent minifigure with the new LEGO Ninjago skeloten body with no printing and the old legs INSIDE the minifigure? It would be a cool idea for a ghost but would be so hard to execure to get all the hinges correct while making each part seperate and hundreds of other problems... plus printing the skull face... Also I find that a 1x1 cylindaric plate with a clip on top would also be more decorative than the one with the square base. There are so many oppurtunitys for parts these days arent there  :classic: . Also I would like to say the snot plates are my absolute favorites, especially the 2x2 with studs on both sides. To keep minimal plastic though I reccomend putting maybe a technic hole in the middle. With that piece I can only imagine how perfect it is to make SNOT space ship wings thinner... Wonderful ideas, support you all the way through!!!

Please take a look at my new SNOT version water slide parts design assembly sample(3 studs width)(5/7 new parts set).
All of the support can attach 3 studs from bottom. And they are different level by ? x plates height.
From top:
2 x down hill spiral (CW, CCW part coming soon)
down hill
down hill morph to level (Invert part coming soon)
straight
90 degree

If the 3 stud and 1 stud angled bricks are overlaid in staggering pattern, there shouldn't be a 'weak' point.

Alternatively you could make 2 stud version with "wings" at both end to fit in between 3 studs brick for better clutch power and still fit. However the wall would be a little loose if it's not more ta=han 3 layers high.

I also have a foam roller from craft store that is handy for flattening uneven bricks like mossiac and for wall like this should LEGO release it.

Thanks for nice comment to let me think about 45 degree brick again. :classic:
All walls can insert door or window, look better and stronger than other 45 degree wall.
We can always find a way to place them onto a base plate or build a roof.

With similar design, the angle of the corner bricks can be 30/60/120/150 degree, Pentagon, Hexagonal, and 3-4-5 triangel's angle, etc.(coming soon)

In the beginning, when you started making parts, I liked them, because they were just like all the other bricks Lego already has (mostly): you can use them in many different ways. :thumbup:

But now, your parts become more and more specialized. I really like them  :classic: , but I think they become too specialized.

I'm glad that you like them and thanks for good suggestion. I will try to design more versatile part like this one.
I changed the picture with both 3 and 1 new parts versions for easy to compare
Adjustable angle range 90-180 degree.
Also can use as wing edge of an airplane.

Heptagon sample.

Only the T joint and elbow with stud are new. I found other three in LDD.
I think it should be good with metalic or chrome colors and connect a red valve(steer wheel 2x2) onto the middle stud of the T joint.(maybe on next CG update)
With many of these parts we can build a maze of piping system.  :tongue:

I think those pieces are pushing the boundaries of being too specialised. Especially when you consider that to use them the way you're suggesting (both the angled corner and log bricks) would actually require two different versions of the 'end' pieces. As to the pipes, I'm not sure the "stud" versions are really necessary, as they can be accomplished already using the existing piece and a technic pin. The t-joint piece might be more useful, although I'm not entirely sure I've ever actually wanted to make piping like that before.

If you mean the latest one with the "rotate" option (90-180 degrees turning), I think it's not bad that you need 2 pieces of the. Now, you can use them as detail too, expecially the one with the round edge. :classic:

I was actually thinking of the fixed angle ones, the rounded edge ones actually need three parts, as you need a left and right version of the "pink" piece. It's most obvious if you look at how it would need to work on alternate rows - there simply isn't any way you could rotate a single piece to make it fit in both places.

^ That's pretty awesome - you should consider, though, adding support for hinges so you can have working flaps!

Thanks, I think these part are for air/space craft builder like you. :classic:

Lego hinge can build easy flaps(aileron,elevator & rudder).
But..
- not look so good/smooth.
- not parallel with the wing.
- cannot build bigger flaps
- limit by angle 0-90 degree.( +/- 45 or 90 degree is better)
I will try to design a new hinge for thiese parts.

We can build the wing to any size and attach many stuff onto it freely
