Delta Blocks

Description

Some rapid prototypes I had made from .stl files.

This is very similar to the cube panels posted earlier [link] . It's a construction toy where the bricks are the Platonic octahedra and tetrahedra rather than the conventional rectangle faced bricks.

For convenience, structures made from octahedra and tetrahedra are called "octet".

The structure in Escher Like Monkeys [link] is made from octet bricks.

This toy could be compatible with Tinker Toys (TM). But sadly, since sqrt(3/4) is irrational they can't be compatible with the cube blocks or Legos (TM). However there is a bridge brick [link] that can link Octet and Cubic structures together quite nicely.
