Intro: 3D Printed Straw Connectors V2

As a follow up to my previous post about a 3D printed straw construction set, I've made a new shape of connector.  This new connector  joins straws at 90 degree junctions, this way you can make a cube or other shapes with right angles.  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.

    This is an incredible idea! You could market these in a kit with some straws maybe and make some money.

    This is awesome!! The kids at the school I work for make things with straws for math and science, the teachers use pipe cleaners to hold them together, but as you can imagine that doesn't work the worlds greatest. These would be such the perfect solution! Nice job!
