As a follow up to my original post about a 3D printed straw construction set, I've made a new shape of connector. This new connector joins six straws in a vertex so that each straw is 60 degrees from the two adjacent to it. This way you can build geodesic spheres and other 3 dimensional shapes. 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.
