A compiled list of *some* ways to utilize the technique of SNOT.
About this creation
SNOT is an acronym for Studs Not (only) On Top. Meaning, that you have studs pointing in other directions other than up. Using SNOT is key to a good build. NOTE: SNOT does not necessarily mean covering studs up with tiles.
However, certain SNOT pieces sometimes make un-even gaps and edges that can take smoothness out of a build. Here are some ways of using SNOT without losing smoothness.
This one is a some-what new idea. I'd like to believe that I came up with the technique, but the design is so simple that anyone could have come-up with the idea.
This is an age-old technique. Basically, 5 plates stacked up on each other is equivalent to the length of 2 studs.
Now, this is one I discovered. I'm so proud of myself. :D
Or so I thought...
This one is really useful for larger builds, in my opinion.
This is a list of only some of the ways to bring smooth SNOT to your builds. There are probably still other ideas out there!
Very good techniques to learn. Number 4 is new to me, never thought of that one. The least useful in my opinion is number three. I have never found an adequate use for that one that another technique couldn't do better. But that's just my experience. Are you going to include the six sided one? ^Blub^
