Introduction: Lego Triangle



These little buddies are made entirely of standard 1x2 Lego bricks. If you make a lot you could stack them or link them together.

Step 1: Parts

You will need:
-63 1x2 bricks

For 3 color: 21 of each color
For 2 color; 42 of one color, 21 of the other color

Step 2:

Attach 3 bricks as shown. Repeat this 20 more times for a total of 21 stacks. 

Step 3:

Turn the top brick, as shown, on 3 of the sets of stacks. 

Step 4:

Start attaching the stacks as shown. Continue adding stacks until there are 7 bricks in the top row. 

Step 5:

Add another one of the stacks that has the top brick turned. After adding 6 more stacks attach another stack with a turned piece. Finally, attach the rest of the stacks as normal. 

Step 6:

Bring the two ends together to form a triangle. It will be a tight fit but it will snap together with a little pressure. Now experiment with different color designs and sizes. 


Be sure to follow so you don't miss out on some really cool upcoming shapes.

    Illuminati confirmed?

    Wow, you have so many awesome Lego Instructables! Legos were my childhood :) This bendy Lego stuff is super cool!

    I dont normally comment on lego stuff but this is pretty neat stuff. I used to have 90lbs of them before I sold them all.

    Well thanks for thinking this was neat enough to comment on :) I'm jealous of your 90lbs stash (even if you sold it). I have over 27k pieces but that doesn't include any of the basic bricks. I don't know how much my collection weighs but I'm still fantasizing about a 90lb bin haha

    this is great and it can also be done with duplo 2x2 blocks and 6 2x4 blocks. you have reignited my love of lego. thanks

    I just had an idea, if you put 5 of these onto the flat sides of the lego pentagon you get a lego star!

    post a picture if this works.

    If you stuck six of your Lego triangles inside your Lego circle, you could make a giant Lego Trivial Pursuit gamepiece.

    You're right, it's "not not a triangle" :) I say 3 sides, 3 angles is a triangle in my book. Maybe a Reuleaux triangle such as in a Wankel engine (rotary engine) but a triangle nonetheless.
    Stop hatin and enjoy the Lego shapes.
