Monument Valley – Totem

  Everyone in the house has played, and often continues to play, Monument Valley. It felt like the house needed a Totem friend of its own.

LEGO Compatible Pentagonal Angle

I’ve had my eye on the various LEGO compatible SCAD files and customizers, and decided to try one of them out. Using a simple 2×2 plate block as the foundation, I built…
