I'm trying to build railing using axles and connectors and am not finding an easy way to get the axles that go to the ground to connect in a way that would be best for my design. Three options I've found so far is using 4032, 3941, or 3713. I like 3713 because it has a smaller profile, but it cannot be placed directly on a stud, which causes two problems: 1) the railings are slightly inside of the plate (less problematic to me); 2) I cannot cover the surrounding studs with tiles, which I'd like to do. Seems another option could be using 11458. That would also offset the railing, but I could cover the stud with a 1x1 tile. I could also use a technic 3700 or 32064, but again, offset and you lose the smaller profile. I'm wondering if I'm not missing some socket sticking straight up that would solve the problem.
3While I have a rough understanding, I'm find it a little confusing in terms of exactly what the issue is. Do you have any sort of mock-up to show?– AlexNov 29, 2020 at 17:22
Is your railing to minifig scale? How long is the vertical axle?– UliNov 29, 2020 at 22:19
Here are some Ideas i came up with. I added some of your suggestions for comparrison.
Mounted on top of the plate:
- 11458, 32013, 2780
- 30383, 30553
Mounted below the plate:
- 40902, 30552
- 30389b, 30553
- 32000, 32013, 2780
- 3701, 32013, 2780
