K*nex 2002 - SolidWorks
I designed this modular toy part for a job application to K*Nex toys. I thought that their system would be perfect for geodesic creations and yet they had no 5 or 6 way connector pieces, so I studied the pieces I had and created two 3 way connectors which could be paired to create a 6 way connector. I also had an idea to make variable length struts so you could make domes and more complex shapes using geodesic triangulation, but never got around to modeling it. I didn't get the job, but that probably has more to do with the fact that I was an ass in the interview and was annoyed that their office was way out in the boonies. Ah well.
