Can you Guess How Many Pieces make up the bottom layer of this ring?
About this creation


Answer: 84

I think that if I stressed this a bit more, the minimum level of bricks would be 80 for a full circle. It is much easier to make a half or quarter circle stressed.



These are regular 1x2 bricks with no mods.

Thanks for sharing this. I remeber it when you first posted. It's just the technique I need for a MOC I plan to do one day!

Oh...my...*gasp, faint, THUMP!* Can't you make a smaller circle though by using the 1x1 round bricks in between the 1x2 bricks? Just curious...

Quoting joe b ... and then it "exploded"
HAHAHA =) Way to go! For clarity, my opinion is 80 is the minimum such that the bricks won't sustain long term damage if left in that configuration!

@Zimzo A few of my old greys cracked a little on the side (but they are still usable) And I was going extremely small. (40 on the bottom, as stated below. :P)All of my other 1x2s were fine. Hope I helped. If you ever happen to come across this again and read it.

Cool. I tried making one, and I got 50 on the bottom... and then it "exploded" and I lost half of my 1x2 bricks... Ah well, there's always Brick Link.

Wow, a great technique; I may use this instead of the 1x1 cylinder way, because I have an awful lot of bley 1x2s. Does it damage the bricks in any way, like expanding them?

You should make a 'dough boy' swimming pool out of that and build a big ol' Whiskey Tango vig to boot! AWESOME!!! EGGPLANT BUILT A BIG CIRCLE!!!

Yes, I know this is crazy, but it is too simple. A 10 USD model can be so popular? At least make a full ring.

Sure you have a sigfig. He was being hung off the second floor balcony by Lee Jones' sigfig (wearing that same doctors outfit ironically) at the mocies after party. Though, you couldn't really see him that well... what with the "beverage" covering his face. ~C.

Thanks for all of the comments below. I think that this goes to show that MOCTD is completely random!! The doctor there is from the frankenstein studio set. not a sigfig. I dont have one of those.

Yes, you should definitely stick with castles. I can't have you going around building ships and making all of my stuff look bad. (turn about's fair play, right? Congrats on MOCOTD!)

Great ring. It looks a bit like the ring of halo. I love how you've made this. I dunno how much bricks you have, but maybe you can make a very nice high tower! I love your castle theme! I was wondering if you could do something with vigs, space, mech, etc. BTW: where do you get that doctor body? Anyway... Happy MOTD, Eggplant! Keep 'm coming, mate!~Joris

Great idea, I always wondered how that would turn out, didn't have the sense to make one of these! I can see this being incorporated in some epic MOC somewhere...

ONE RING TO RULE THEM ALL... opps sorry, wrong moc. Thanks for showing us how to do that. 84 huh, do you realize that that is exactly double the answer to life, the universe and everything... think about it. Later ~ Chris.

I've seen this done a good bit, but it's nice to have someone focus specifically on the technique for others to see it done and consider it's uses. I'm curious to know the diameter of the circle?

Very interesting design, I'm still gawking and wondering how you did that. For that, you get a 5/5.

if you add a 1x1 round brick after each 1x2 brick you can make any shape, check out the city walls of this moc http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/42860
