Alt. part ideas for 3956

Bosstone100Bosstone100 USAMember Posts: 1,431

Does anyone know of a part similar to part 3956 but with the 90 degree angle in "hanging" up instead of down? Part 3956 is the one in green. I found a similar part to what I'm looking for but not exactly. If not, is there a similar custom part out there that might do the trick?

I attached a screenshot. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Attach it the other way, and then the studded bit will point upwards :)

    Probably not quite what you want, but still...

    Best I could come up with would be to use the One Ring from LotR (or, maybe better to use one of these into one of these) to invert the way the studs go, put your part 3956 on there, then use 4 of these with 4 of these inside them to get the studs going the right way again. If this isn't clear I'll try and do an LDD mockup later.
    Hope this helps!

    Here you go (Obviously the 4117070s would be right down over the 4143005s, but neither LDD nor would let me do it....):

    And an exploded/colour-coded shot:

    @Bosstone100 hope this helps!

    Thanks. I'll give it a shot. I'll try removing the bottom 2x2 and added that setup underneath. Hopefully it lines up.

    Thanks again!

    Another alternative is a construction sort of like the above, but with two of the tiles with hole and a Technic axle through the center. That way you could reverse the studs again without the slight offset caused by the "lip" of the Technic pins. You can achieve that in a fairly small space with a 2M axle!
