This is my first tutorial, so please tell me if I did something wrong.
In this tutorial, I will show you how to get extremely small parts!
In case you didn’t know, the smallest possible standard
0.05 x 0.05 x 0.05, which is small, but sometimes not small enough for things like non-mesh tools.
However, there is a way to make parts even smaller! First, create a new part and don’t resize it. I put mine at
0,0.5,0 for this tutorial.
Then, create another part, make it bigger, and move it up 0.01 studs so that it overlaps a huge majority of the other part. Then negate this second part. If the other part is at
0,0.5,0, then put this one at
Union both parts. You will be left with a
4 x 0.01 x 2 Unioned part!
As you can see, the green unioned part is actually shorter than the regularly-sized red part on the left!
However, it gets better! You can even repeat this, but use
0.501 as the Y-coordinate for the second part… you get a 0.001 high part! This is super useful for carpets/decorations!
P.S. The Size property still says
4 x 0.05 x 2 although the part is actually smaller.
