Construction Technique: Stacking

Quite often designers need the equivalent of  milled parts’ boss, slot or pocket features. This can be accomplished through stacking. Parts are stacked with faces touching, then secured together with a nut and a bolt.

You can also produce an undercut effect by stacking larger pieces on top of smaller pieces.
