TriviaThis section is a trivia section. Please relocate any relevant information into other sections of the article.
- The old ROBLOX studs look similar to the LEGO studs.
- ROBLOX wasn't sued by the LEGO Company for circle studs. LEGO company does not have a patent on the LEGO brick.
- The ROBLOX studs also appear similar to the Blockland studs, except that Blockland made their square shaped studs before ROBLOX did (possibly to avoid infringement as well).
- Some people dislike the new square studs, and will make textures that resemble or are the same as the old circular ones.
- Studs are also used in measuring. For example, a ROBLOXian is 5 studs tall.
- According to the ROBLOX Blog, 1 meter is equal to 20 ROBLOX studs, so a stud is 5 centimeters, and a real-life ROBLOXian (that is 5 studs tall) would be 25 centimeters, about 10 inches tall.
- Sometime in December, an update was made where inserting a brick would no longer result in it being sided with studs on the top.
