Another simple SB tutorial building a multiple faceted geometrical shape with plaplate.
Building facet by facet instead of trimming a solid block will greatly benefit us from avoiding tremendous sanding process , and providing nearly perfect symmetry as facets are pre-cut accordingly.
Example build from PG Blueframe - The Support bracket for the tactical arm when it transform into backpack.
The support bracket will be a match profile to the center part of the tactical arm , so i just build on top of it.
Pic below shown the 6th of precut plaplate .
Chamfer the side which will be attached to the main bracket.
How much angle of the chamfer it's all depend on your design. Usually, i just measure it visually.
Glued with cement.
Next will the triangle pcs, trace the shape onto a pcs of paper.
est fit the paper cut-out before cutting the plaplate
Transfer the shape onto plaplate , cut out and chamfered to match the both side of the attaching area.
Glued & basic faceted geometrical shape done :)
