Basic Tensegrity Pyramid

Tensegrity Pyramid model in 3D

Tensegrity is a structural principle based on individual pieces under compression inside a structure that is under continual tension in such a way that the individual pieces to not touch each other while the tensioned pieces (for example, twine or wire) delineate the system’s structure. In other words, one is left wondering how the individual pieces seem to float in mid-air. This model contains the bars and top/bottom pieces for a pyramid type of structure.
