Stability with LEGO TECHNIC










TECHNIC 101
Introduction to the LEGO TECHNIC Building System

Learn the basic TECHNIC elements and how they create stability or allow motion in your creations.


Giant cranes...huge earth-moving construction vehicles... offroad 4x4s... how do they make them? And how do they make them work?

That�s what LEGO TECHNIC is all about! TECHNIC is an incredible building system that lets you combine gears, beams, wheels and other parts to build functional and amazingly realistic feats of engineering. TECHNIC creations can move, lift, rotate and spin, just like the real thing!

These lessons will provide basic tips to start you on your way to becoming a TECHNIC Master Builder. Along the way, we�ll show you how to build working components that you can use in your own models. What you learn here can even be used in the world outside of LEGO building!

Let�s get started!

TECHNIC building uses the "module" or "M" as a measurement of length. 1 M is the distance from the center of one hole on a TECHNIC beam to the center of the next hole.
