Tensegrity T-prism Numero Uno: Turnbuckles Rule

September 19, 2008

Hey, howsbout a post with nothing about politics or current affairs. Yeehaw. Built my first tensegrity model that I don’t consider totally home-spun. A 3 T-prism, it’s composed of dowel rods, wire weave, screw eyes, and turnbuckles! I especially like the turnbuckles. Makes for getting the tension just so, something that I’d been having trouble with in the past with smaller models, which, sadly, are no longer with us. Bonus feature: turnbuckles allow for taking the sucker apart easy for storage.
