I guess my question is does a zigzag work? Can 2 hinges work? Is 2 hinges together too stressful?
It's generally called N or Z, as to keep with the V. Of course it can work. Just as much as any type of relationship configuration can work. I would imagine the term explains itself, as soon as you mention that it follows the shape of the N/Z. On person and another person have a partner each, and those partners are with each other.
