Well, almost everything is said in the document introduction.
Since I've discovered the community 4 years ago, I feel the need for a
compilation of building techniques. More recently, reading various
forums/articles (among them classic-castle, mechahub, and excellent posts by
Linus Bohman on classic-space) I feel again the need for such a document.
The fact is that I wrote this some months ago and I felt then the document was
not complete. The reason I release it today is that I did not work on it since
then for various reasons. So I feel I should share it now.
Such a document obviously (TLC is releasing new parts leading to new techniques
every year) can't be exhaustive and would need numerous updates.
Wow! Thanks for all this hard work. There wasn't much not familiar in there (at first glance) but to have all this knowledge in one place instead of scattered all over the Lego web is brilliant! Thanks again! God Bless, Nathan (who is looking (...) (7 years ago, 11-Feb-07, to lugnet.build.schleim, FTX)
Hey Didier, This is a pretty good start towards a technique compendium, but I can think of a few things you missed. There's element stressing (as (URL) discussed> at Brickfest '06), and I think it would benefit from a section on articulation. After (...) (7 years ago, 12-Feb-07, to lugnet.build.schleim, FTX)
(...) Didier - congratulations on putting this together. It's a very useful resource. My apologies to the Brick-Wiki-Fiddlers, but I much prefer a well-written document like this to inter-linked pages. BrickWiki may be useful as a reference, but a (...)

Hi Didier, thanks for this great resource for advanced use of LEGO elements! You've collected much more SNOT and Co. stuff then I did when I did my website years ago. And yes, there are allways new elements and there are so many hobbiest finding (...) (7 years ago, 13-Feb-07, to lugnet.build.schleim, FTX)
(...) Hi Didier, I think you have done a very good work! It's surprising how it is interesting to read even if you already know the techniques. Some years ago, I read something similar (but really don't know where on internet!) but it wasn't so (...) (7 years ago, 14-Feb-07, to lugnet.build.schleim)
(...) I've read your document, there are some very good techniques described, some of which I've used in a MOC I'm currently working on. I notice it seems to focus quite a bit on SNOT, are there plans to expand beyond that (like determining (...) (7 years ago, 15-Feb-07, to lugnet.build.schleim)
Great resource Didier! It's wonderful to have so many techniques compiled into one document. This would be perfect for handing out hard-copies of at LUG meetings, among many uses. A couple of things that occurred to me while reading it... 1. Minor (...) (7 years ago, 16-Feb-07, to lugnet.build.schleim)
(...) Didier, this is a fantastic piece of work - even better since the last time I saw it. I'm terribly sorry in case you tried to reach me again; way back when I slipped of the 'net, my e-mail also went haywire and I completely forgot about this. (...)

(...) Wow, nice work Didier! I recall using the axle and tube method shown back in 2003-2004 when I built my completely stud free (correct proportion) monolith from 2001: (URL) I assume this technique was widely known before then but it surprised me (...)
