2017 studs

The early 2017 Roblox studs.

Studs represent a measure of size and distance on Roblox as well as a SurfaceType on BaseParts. The current studs are simply blank squares without a symbol on them unlike most stud styles. The studs initially started with a circular shape (while still keeping the "R"), but then it was changed to the newer square studs due to a threat of copyright infringement from the LEGO company.

Studs are connectable to Inlet, Universal, and Weld surfaces.


2005: Studs are square and the studs look popped out instead of in.


2006–2009: Studs don't look popped out anymore and studs became circle studs similar to LEGO.

The mid-2000's-era studs.

  • 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 a blog post from 2012, 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.[1]
  • Sometime in December, an update was made where inserting a brick would no longer result in it being sided with studs on the top.
