The Hinge is an Action Block that allows for single-axis rotation (like an elbow or knee).

Notes[edit | edit source]


  • 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.

Wind Right Winds the Hinge counterclockwise at a constant speed Speed (Slider)
95x75
Step Left Steps the Hinge clockwise at a constant speed (like a clock's second hand) Speed (Slider)
95x75
Step Right Steps the Hinge counterclockwise at a constant speed (like a clock's second hand) Speed (Slider)
95x75
Free Allows the Hinge to rotate freely; attachments are still affected by physics N/A
