A Microblock is a type of block which was originally added by the RedPower 2 mod, but has since been redone in the ForgeMultipart mod. Microblocks are made by combining full blocks or Microblocks with a Handsaw or other Microblocks in a crafting grid.
Besides existing in many shapes and sizes, a major feature of Microblocks is that they can be placed in the same block space as other Microblocks and certain other blocks, allowing for complex structures or sophisticated decorations inside a single block space. This can be done by simply placing a Microblock just like one would place any other block. An overlay will appear when able to place a Microblock, which indicates possible positions for it.
In older versions of ftb (1.6.4), Microblocks added by forge multipart have no effective blast resistance- even two obsidian slabs stacked to create an obsidian block. In current versions of ftb (1.7.10), microblocks maintain the blast resistance of the block they were made from.
