  • How to make your own magnetic construction set

    Very exciting design! Somebody suggested sqrt2 strut proportions- good idea. I would also suggest cutting the sticks to golden ratio proportions. And of course one could color code them accordingly. In fact, one could look to the Zometool modelling system & copy all of its various strut lengths to maximize generativity. Question: is there a practical limit to how many struts can connect at a single vertex? Can you do 5? 12? Arranging the spherical magnets' poles perpendicular to the length of the struts was a very good suggestion as well- has anybody tried that? Does it really work well to prevent the problem of like poles repelling one another?
