Make’s description

Looks super cool. Even after reading about tensegrity https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tensegrity and assembling this, it still looks like magic to me.

Fishing wire looks completely invisible depending on light settings.
Assembly was a bit tricky, I had to sand the arms a bit because they were too big for the bases' holes. Holes were also a bit small so I had to enlarge them with a needle. The fishing wire goes easily through the holes.

Tensors were too big, I would recommend printing them 80-90% size. I am not using the tensors, it holds quite ok but wouldn't dare to put much weight on it.

It does hold my 3d printed reticular glasses
It does not hold an aeroplane ;)
