What's SNOT?
Join to comment
So I've seen the word SNOT used countless times in praise and criticism, however, I have no idea what the heck it means.

SNOT:
Studs
Not
On
Top.

Building involving multiple angles of the studs. For instance, this: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/169575 contains SNOT.

Whereas this: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/169601 is standard studs-up building.

These days just about everything has some SNOT on it somewhere.

Most people seem to think SNOT means studless, though.

Areesta pretty much covered it. The one thing you have to keep in mind is that tiling a baseplate, although it covers the studs, is NOT "SNOT." That's simply "studless." (I know Areesta said that already, but it's good to get that point reiterated.) Just don't get the two mixed up and you're good to go.
