3D model description

Amazing object which demonstrates the principle of tensegrity, which allows a structure to be stable by a balance of the tension and compression forces.

This object has the advantages of hiding the wires and there is a wire tension system for easier mounting ! (Cf. photos)

You can change the print scale between 80% and 120% to keep it working properly.

For mounting, use nylon wire (fishing wire).

The distance between the two bases must be approximately 95 mm.

Don't hesitate to share your makes !
