Pictured above are some of the various basic sets and spare parts packs of Sweden from The small spare parts packs date to , the larger basic sets date to , the smaller basic sets date to The basic sets that were produced from underwent a lot of changes in the 17 years that they were produced, both in box design and contents. But they always seemed to maintain the same set numbers. And with the exception of the wooden box sets they all had the bricks stored in the box in a nice zigzag or checkerboard pattern, in a 2x2, 2x4 and 4x4 stud size. There was usually a deeper cardboard insert that allowed the loose storage of miscellaneous parts that could not be part of the checkerboard display.

Your kind and encouraging words have kept me going during difficult times! From Mattia: My biggest thanks go to Nelson Paino for his advice on improving my 3D graphics and the images you see in this book. Thanks also to my son, Leonardo, who has been an excellent play tester despite his young age, and to my sweet wife, Fabiola, who has supported this project from the beginning.

Special thanks go to Pasquale DSilva for very kindly providing the quirky character for this book. And last but not least, I am grateful to Nathanal for being such a great inspiration with his models!


About the book Just imagine! Sometimes its not as easy as it sounds, is it? Of course, this ratio fits when multiplying : 10 plates height equals 4L parts length, 15 plates height 5 bricks height equals 6L parts length and so on.

Hence, the ratio is a direct consequence of the ratio. SNOT techniques are all about this. Thankfully to specific parts, beginning with SNOT is not so intricate.

For instance it exist bricks with studs on their sides: - Brick 1x1 with 2 studs on sides - Brick 1x1 with 4 studs on sides - Brick 1x4 with studs on side - Brick 2x4x2 with studs on sides The basic SNOT scheme is then easily made.

Bricks with studs on sides are not the only SNOT parts. It exists also a lot of modified parts, among them brackets. With a bit of curiosity, you will discover that some elementary buildings are efficient when dealing with SNOT.

For instance, the Technic 1x1 brick and the half stud pin come rapidly to an equivalent and unavailable brick 1x1 with one stud on the side. The half pin part is more than a strictly half pin. It's a half pin at an end plus an hollow stud in the other end.

Another part allow a similar building, which is the Technic axle 3 with stud but you will notice a slight offset due to the axle lip. The stud is not on the top, the stud is on the side. The 1x4x1 fence does not present the offset nor the overlapping effect.

The 1x4x2 fence present an unexpected 7 LDU negative offset. The followings chapters will covered some examples. One very frequently encountered SNOT building is the following, to create letterings see chapter 3 or large windows for passenger trains. As you can see, it uses both stud-out and stud-in SNOT building : Employ of the ratio is represented by this train front bumper, original idea by James Mathis. SNOT Some parts exist both in the normal and inverted version.

For instance slope bricks, even some arches. But some design will need the use of an inverted part which does not exist. Until now, SNOT has been limited to 90 degrees rotations. SNOT allows you to invert parts.

SNOT is then what you need. It is 40 LDU high 5 plates.

The others bricks with studs on sides in the illustration are 20 LDU high Two different type of 1x1 with clip exist. The left plate with clip, which is discontinued, is thinner than the new one. Passing through holes parts The Technic plates are passing through holes parts : Technic bricks, lift arms, beams and ClickitTM ring are also examples of passing through holes parts but their thickness 12 and 20 LDU is different from a multiple of a plate width.

James Mathis has designed these applications : Train cab window : Oval train door window : SNOT connections Some parts are part of a link system different from the stud and tube system and can be combined in an inverted way : Hinges : The resulting building is 24 LDU high.

The same building is possible with plate and brick click hinges but then you will face respectively a 12 and 28 LDU height. With a 34 LDU height. This building is limited to large plates. It can be reinforced by increasing the number of stick. It can also be improved using cut Technic tubing.

The original pony-ear technique consists in placing a 1x2 plate vertically between the studs of a 2x4 plates.


This building is used in classic official castle sets to represent ears of brick built horses. The pony-ear technique is quite limited by his definition and applications. ToPLESs is an advanced building technique that has been developed directly from the pony ear technique. It has been theorized by Erik Amzallag. ToPLESs has appeared in official sets such , and In these official LEGO set, the use of this technique is very limited: only one or two plates or tiles are concerned.

Adult fans use this technique to create thin walls, fences, ladders, beams, etc and more heavily as mechanical structure footbridge, roller coaster. P-LESs present a major drawback. In practice, there are two situations.

Whether the number of overlapping studs is low for instance in the pony-ear technique and then it cause no trouble, whether the overlapping studs is consequent and then it cause the plates to be bended. This drawback at least as one major advantage : the connection is very tight. We can bring with two solution to the P-LESs drawback : - Offseting : the studs are no more facing but alternate, so there is no more overlapping.
