Why is knex a popular subject? Answered

Everybody tends to post slideshows is it because its apparently fragile and not for instructables or are they just lazy?

. You're definitely on the right track, but the original (Gilbert) Erector Set (not the Mecanno-made one of today) is the bestest. :P

Ah, the American love of respecting intellectual property rights. Erector was a rip off of Meccano, the irony is meccano now owns Erector.

Given your user name, do you really need to ask?

(Personally, I consider it all pretty pointless. But I'm a Lego bigot.)

It's got a lot of potential as its a prototyping build platform -- similar to lego (my preference too) -- It's only the functional stuff I appreciate, the visual 'I made something shaped like a knife' that bugs me...

Because they didn't take pictures along the way of them making it and they don't feel like/want to take it apart to make instructions for it. Also most people tend to be able to build it just from looking at a few pictures.

They're not lazy - it's just that K'NEX instructables tend to read "clip the red bit into the white, like in the photo", repeated many times.
