In the attached you will find the design for a 2x2 panel that has provisions that allow them to be used as a hinge. These can be connected to other panels in order to allow the panel to used by more than just a 90 degree angle. By connecting these in groups, strength for the connection is increased. This is similar to how a piano hinge works. The holes for the connector pins are serrated in order to provide extra holding power. To connect the two halves together, a regular metal or plastic shaft (such as used when building with gears and wheels) would connect the halfs together, held in place by rubber shaft collars or similar. This was created using Tinkercad by Aden Foulk. His bio is at: http://www.leorobots.org/141b.html. Enjoy!
