I love cheese slopes, but I am having issues when I try to produce a smooth gradient using several in succession. I end up with a gentle saw tooth effect at each junction. What combination of elements do I require to get the smooth appearance I'm trying to achieve?

Offsets with cheese slopes

    Do you have a picture of what you have so far? Commented Jun 10, 2014 at 8:38
  • I can add one tomorrow. Right now it's past my bedtime. :) Commented Jun 10, 2014 at 8:47
  • I think I can see the problem, I'll add a temporary render for now ;) Commented Jun 10, 2014 at 9:11
  • From that pic it seems like not even a half-plate resolution will be perfect, but better. A quarter-plate offset might do the trick.

To create a smooth surface with cheese slopes they must be offset by one-half plate in height. There are several techniques to do this. Here is one using the common "headlight" brick. It has the advantage of being extendable to nearly any length.

  • Ahah! I knew Erling bricks were involved, but didn't have the time to dig deep enough ;) Commented Jun 11, 2014 at 8:45

This would be a way but other techniques may suit you as well.

  • Looks good, but how long of a slope could you make like this?
