Three anchors each side, bridge level with top anchor - best triangular design ideas, please! :7D? Answered
I'm a bit stuck on making a stable, theoretical bridge.
No one piece can be longer than 10, no shorter than 1.
The bridge must span at least 8.
Imagine a gully:
There are three anchor points that you must use on each side - the highest is at the top, the lowest halfway down (not that that makes too much difference...).
You have 80 pieces with which to build your bridges - please can you lend me your noggin's as I'm having trouble coming up with ideas that will bear a load.
A regular suspension bridge or a tressle bridge won't work, as the joins for the pieces are not fixed solid - so you must use triangles / tension to support them. A bit like loose mechano, or whatever it is people have these days :7)
Do they still have lego?
I haven't seen a kid play with lego for ages... It's mostly P£3 and Sega Megadrives and stuff. tsk.
I just noticed a knex catagory. I guess that's mechano, right..?
