I was not fortunate that when I was graduated in 2010 I am not aware of this tool. But during my preparation of CEng exam I saw the video of this and I experienced that this is amazing. I bought it and gifted to my university and they also find this is quite useful item.
As a structural engineer this is an excellent tool to help demonstrate some basic concepts in structural mechanics and failure
Con Mola es muy fácil aprender el funcionamiento de las estructuras, los momentos, los cortantes y flectores. Lo recomiendo cien por cien.
Recommended for structural engineering learners and teachers.
However, importing it to the EU was a real (and expensive) nightmare.
I use these kits to teach architecture students about structures. They have fun and structural knowledge comes to life.
