You can use the provided STL files, or generate new ones using the code provided on Github: https://github.com/leenegnojw/Tensegrity_gen. There is also a small pdf which explains the structure a little more.


is contact based, with a 40mm leg input and a hole for assembly


is floating based with a 60mm cord length, resulting in a 103.9mm leg length and of course holes for assembly.

Materials and methods

To assemble the floating structure you need very basic thread. For the contact one, you can use that as well, or tape, glue, you name it.
