How would one put an Olet on the bend of an elbow?

Custom model i would think.

An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't.

In 2013, it should just go in on the elbow. It will go in perpendicular to the surface of the elbow. If you want it to go in like an elbowlet, you will need to use an elbowlet component.
