  1. Hi everybody If been playing around with constructing at 45 degrees in technic and found the following techniques: The first one is using an axle through some connectors thus giving you 45 degrees and of course you can now start mounting or building of the axle: I also played around with the Pythagoras theorem and found the two practical values to use: 5 ( 6L in LEGO the first L is the 0 position ) and 7.071 { 5.sqrt(2) } rounded to 7 ( 8L in LEGO the first L is the 0 position ) 7 ( 8L in LEGO the first L is the 0 position ) and 9.899 { 7.sqrt(2) } rounded to 10 ( 11L in LEGO the first L is the 0 position ) The first Pythagoras pair used is the top left with the 6L black axle and the two no. 4 connectors. Not a fan of this method as it is a bit over sized and if you build the parts rigid into you construction with support from the top and the back of the no. 4 connector it might ever so slightly bend the axle or damage your parts. The second pair method one is the 11L beam again not a fan of this method as it will pull ever so slightly as it is actually a bit under sized. The second pair method two and most favoured by me personal is the one I like most yes there will be a small 0.1mm gap in the gray axle but it is really small. I like this method better because I can brace the no 4 connectors from the back and from the tops. I wanted to share this but also I would like to know if you guys have any other techniques you would like sharing? I would like to keep it stud less if possible. Of course using the new A plate with some technic bricks would also be a possibility: http://alpha.brickli...lor=11#T=C&C=11 Anton Edit 1:Used flickr deaplinks instead of attachments
