The Hinge is an Action Block that allows for single-axis rotation (like an elbow or knee).
- The Hinge can be attached to any other block using 2 of its surfaces: its base, or its swivel plate.
- If a block is attached to the Hinge's swivel plate (on the front surface), the block will rotate from the Hinge's center point.
- The Hinge's range of motion allows it to rotate 90 degrees forward or 90 degrees backward from neutral, for a total range of 180 degrees.
- Using a "Free" scripting tile makes the block's hinge into a passive joint. However, the Hinge can also be powered; the "Wind" or "Step" scripting tiles can pull the block's hinge in either direction (marked as Right or Left), and then released using the "Released" scripting tile.
