Portland Oregon micro scale nano city skyscraper Pacwest tower
About this creation
Portland, architecture and LEGO all collided one day in MLCAD as I decided to replicate skyscrapers in itty-bitty scale. The PacWest Tower stands 418' tall. At Nano scale, this translates to 418'x12 = 5016" / 1000 = 5.02". My model stands 5.06" according to MLCAD.
Since the corners of the building were rounded, I employed the technic plates built in a brick-like pattern. Since the corners don't actually connect, the walls would fall apart if it weren't for axles sent down the holes. The 2x6 plate occurs only on the top. Other than that, the building is hollow.
