    Ahahaha!!!!! Funniest thing ever!

    Well in my experience the only part that breaks frequently is the two vertical orange pieces connected by the vertical blue rod made in step 1 picture 11. That is a guide I forgot to post a picture of. I will fix it immediately.

    ok, but still, it just looks like a few triangles.

    Triangles are the strongest shapes.

    You might want to put layers on it then.

    You mean pointlessly ruining the simplicity of the project to make it look cooler?
