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

Notes[edit | edit source]


  • The Hinge Slab is a special variant of the Hinge, mounted on a Slab. This allows placement that is not possible with a regular Hinge.


  • The Hinge Slab can be attached to any other block using 2 of its surfaces (its base, or its swivel plate), and can be rotated to stack with other Slabs in a one-block volume.


  • If a block is attached to the Hinge Slab's swivel plate (on the front surface), the block will rotate from the Hinge Slab's center point.


  • The Hinge Slab'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 Slab 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.
