This is a quick tutorial to demonstrate how to create the new angles allowed by FS 2.0. A = 1:3 B = 1:4 C = 1:6 D = 1:8 E = 2:3 To create the angles, you have to use the new composite feature. Each letter shows the bricks at the top needed to create the angle piece beneath it. Except for the 2:3, the two middle columns make the angle pieces necessary for the middle part of the 2:3. I will post some screenshots and better explanations tomorrow. I added single dots to the other caps to make sure this font showed up for everyone...I couldn't remember what the minimum number of characters is.


Hehe. Beat me to it. I had a tutorial with some additional techniques as well. I think I'll post it as an alternative method. This is a good start to get people acclimated to the new 2.0 angles. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for this :) I have been (slowly) working my way towards a few new angles - but this helps no end.

@genius1 - Do post your tutorial - everything helps those (like me) with fewer brain cells.

@geneus1 Yes, please post yours too!

@p2pnut Glad I could help. :)

Below is a crappy animated .GIF "movie" showing the steps to make a new angle.

It's 8 frames long and each frame is shown for about 5 seconds. There is a "The End" frame so you can easily tell when you've seen it all. It should loop automatically.

Really useful - especially in showing how the individual elements of an angle are created.

Thank you for taking your time to provide this tutorial. It is nicely done with the animated GIF.

Great .gif, but do you think the 5 seconds is a bit quick for first timers........ especially first thing in the morning. :-)

@djnippa lol...I thought about that, but I was afraid that people might think it was a static image if the frame rate was too slow.
Comment by aphoria 6th june 2010
Maybe set the frame time faster for the first frame then, and then slow it all down?
Comment by djnippa 6th june 2010
Is it possible to put the animated give in the description area?
