Introduction: 3D Printed Straw Connectors V5

Picture of 3D Printed Straw Connectors V5

As a follow up to my original post about a 3D printed straw construction set, I've made a new shape of connector.  This new connector  joins six straws in a vertex so that each straw is 60 degrees from the two adjacent to it.  This way you can build geodesic spheres and other 3 dimensional shapes.  I printed this connector with an epilog printer (the grand prize in the Make it Real Challenge!)
I've attached the AutoCAD and stl files below.
