It is funny, and it makes structures interesting.
Its perfect to explain the basic concepts and behaivor of cables structures!!
Building involves designing and knowing the fundamental principles of the force path in order to provide the necessary elements for the structure to support itself and the additional elements of the construction. The provision of these elements has been translated into formulas that must then be tested in the laboratory and in the real world.
The Mola kits allow us to anticipate these behaviors in a real way to acquire the intuition of the expected final behavior.
I'm a structural engineer, and I feel like a kid again each time I open the Mola box. No purchase has given me more delight for the money. Highly recommended.
