Build The Objects Of Your Desire
HOW TO BUIL ALL TYPES OF OBJECTS USING
EVERBLOCK MODULAR BRICKS
It's Easy To Build With
Each Block has a series of connector lugs, that are designed to nest into the underside of the next block. Sections can be staggered in 3″ intervals, so that 1, 2, 3, or 4 of the lug sets nest into the other block.
Lugs are designed to pressure fit into corresponding slots on the underside of the block on top. Underside ribbing provides structural support and a tight fit.
To begin, simply align each new block over the block below and center over the lugs that you want to connect with. Press down until you can’t push any further and blocks are fully connected.
Varying Block Type, Lug Spacing and Block Direction
Utilize a combination of block types, lug spacing, and block direction to create your object. Alternate as needed to create unique designs and consider the structural implication of aligning seam lines (when seams are aligned the construction is not as strong and we suggest staggering blocks).
Change block rotation to provide strength and to extend your object in another direction. This is ideal for buildings, displays, and other multidirectional structures.
Adding Shelves, Desktops and Lintels
The EverBlock system features engineered shelves, desktops, and lintel pieces that slot neatly onto your creations, enabling you to create complex furniture units, displays, and works spaces as well as facilitate the building of doorways, windows, and other openings that require blocks to be placed above the opening.
Reinforcing And Strengthing Your Object
Stagger blocks so that the vertical seam lines are not aligned, will increase the strength of your object in the same way masons utilize this technique to strengthen walls. This method can be used when creating longer objects or taller walls that need to withstand wind, lateral pressure, or support roofs or other objects.
Use support rods or dowels depending on the size, application, or type of object you are building, it may be necessary to re-inforce your object for additional stability. You can also use 1/2″ rebar, wooden dowels, or PVC rod or tubing to provide added strength.
Finishing The Top Of Your Objects
To create a more finished look for your object, we have created finishing pieces that are smooth topped pieces that snap to the top of your object. The are used to cover the connector lugs of each piece and can be used to create tops for tables, benches, and other objects that require a more finished look.
Simply nest EverBlock finishing caps on top of the connector lugs of the blocks below to create a clean, smooth top surface.
To disassemble modules hold the lower block while pulling up on the upper block. This will dis-engage the pressure fit. Start from the top most row of blocks and move downwards. A flat head screwdriver is useful and will speed and facilitate separation of blocks. Simply insert the flat head screwdriver between upper and lower blocks and rotate to provide leverage for separation.
Depending on the stagger pattern used in the construction of the object, it may be necessary to remove adjacent blocks to reach and remove a specific target block on a lower row.
Stack disassembled blocks neatly for later use and nest where possible to protect connector lugs.
