Left, a rendering of the modular ABS structure revealing the internal patterns of the LEGO blocks. Right, half of a cross section displaying internal block-to-block contact geometry, to scale. The entire shaded area representing block 3 rests on the upper surface of block 2. The 1.8 nm tall studs of block 2 provide secure interlocking to block 3, whilst minimising the contact surface area between blocks. Each connection has 4 ‘corner’ stud connections (labelled C), and 4 ‘side’ stud connections (labelled S).
