Another question in my SLC temple series: How can I replicate the downward facing triangles in the stonework of some of the spire/columns. Currently I'm planning on just using cheese slopes but those are kind of square. I could maybe use quarter tiles but they're not quite the same either. stonework stonework with triangles highlighted

  • How wide is that section gonna be, 8 studs maybe? Off the top of my heads, plain studs-out might just work. Jan 12, 2023 at 4:44

    Please post some pictures of your attempt to replicate this. It would give a sense of scale and accuracy we are looking for.

    I'm not sure if you could engineer this into a question, but I'd love to see the end result of your temple when you've finished! Jan 12, 2023 at 20:51
  • @NeilTarrant that is why we have comments and chat! :-)

Judging by a previous question by @MonteGardner, I'll assume that the build is mainly in light bluish gray ("bley") colour, and the distance between the columns of a tower (the length of the downward triangle strips) is 8 studs.

I'll suggest using 1x1 plate with tooth for the triangles (with some SNOT supports and tiles for the battlements), plus slope 75° 2x2x3 for the pyramid endings.

  • In a comment on the question, you suggested "1x2 plate with 3 teeth", as that would give 12 "teeth" on 8 studs, and there are 13-14 "triangles" on the picture that would come closer. Jan 12, 2023 at 13:15
  • Unfortunately "1x2 plate with 3 teeth" is not available in light grey colour. Jan 12, 2023 at 13:50
  • Ahh, that's a good reason not to choose it. Jan 12, 2023 at 14:12
