Meta-Parts: Part III

This is a continuation from Meta-Parts: Part I and Part II and consists of a library of LEGO constructs that can in many cases act as liftarms for bracing various structures. Here we consider constructs made from the LEGO axle joiner perpendicular.

Axle Joiner Perpendicular Constructs I
These LEGO constructs are even more sturdy and can be used as extremely strong braces. These are especially good for LEGO Mindstorms NXT projects.

Axle Joiner Perpendicular Constructs II
This figure shows the wide array of constructs that can be made with both the axle joiner perpendicular pieces. These pieces are constructed from either two or three of these joiners. An example showing seven of them is below. The number of combinations is staggering.

I have found such LEGO constructs to be especially useful in robotics applications.
