This is my latest technique for opening canopies that keep a nice sleek look to the exterior. Don't worry, the crazy colours are just there to make easy to see. The yellow represents the minimum distance to allow it to work, as well as the baseplate. I recomend going one plate height lower than the yellow tile, but that is the maximum functional height.

Clever set up, Dude. I always thought those particular canopies were problematic. Problem solved!

...One of those, "why didn't I think of that?", moments! Great technique, it's simple - so it takes up minimal room - yet it does the job.

Ha, I was pretty close with how I thought you did that. Nice use of the different colors to really make it clear and easy to see.

That is a really neat technique, very complex and it looks like it works great. I might need to try the sometime. ^Blub^
