It occurred to me that the tutorials on LDD are pretty rubbish really. So what I was wondering was if anyone had any tips for using LDD that they wanted to share.

Anything you've discovered that you think might help other LDD users, or failing that, a combination of parts which you never thought was possible on LDD, that surprisingly works.

My contribution would be:

The Hyperbolic Ring. This is the mech builders secret weapon. Not only can it function as a foot or a hand, but can allow you to attach limbs, wings and weapons in a ring of 8, 6 or 4 balanced and evenly distributed from a single linkage point.

Because it has a hole AND stud linkage it can be used with technic parts and normal lego.

This has definitely become my favourite piece.

Agreed. This piece is a great one. I used it on Smaug to create a very articulate skeleton that connects easily to the skin.

Some tips of mine:
1) lightsabre blades fit into technic cross slots, this can make for some interesting part interfaces.
2) things like claws and horns can fit into technic connector pegs with knob.
3) when I make something I tend to create several different versions using copy and paste. Then I will tweek some feature of it and play with each version to see if I like the outcome. Then I will take each of the features that I like and combine them into a synthesis. This allows me to combine the best of many techniques and improve the overall quality of my designs.
