The Zometool construction system
was actually designed for children, but is used primarily by scientists who want to recreate small structures and forms in physical space.
The heart of the system is the nodes, because they connect everything. One node has 62 holes in three different forms. Each hole is for one colour of the struts: yellow struts fit into one type of hole, and blue and red ones have their own form, too. The struts come in three different lengths: supershort (0), short (1) and medium (2). That means that B1 stands for blue struts in short for example.
All sets can be combined and more sets simply mean more opportunities and bigger models. If you want to benefit from the vast possibilities Zometool has to offer, you should go for a bigger set. But a starter set is sufficient to get to know the way Zometool works.
The best part about Zometool is probably the instructions! They give you detailed explanations, suggestions and (of course) instructions, as well as potential construction challenges (please note, that our sets are German and thus feature instructions in German). Building with Zometool is actually super easy, although some manuals are more suited to older rather than younger children. But that's a good reason for all ages to come together to have fun with Zometool as a group!
This is the starter kit: 246 pieces are enough to explore the beauty of maths and geometry, for example.
-30 struts each in B0, B1, B2
-20 struts each in Y0, Y1, Y2
-12 struts each in R0, R1, R2
If you liked the starter set and you now want to build larger models, you can supplement it with the 492-piece set. Or you could go for this one right from the start if you like building :).
-60 struts each in B0, B1, B2
-40 struts each in Y0, Y1, Y2
-24 struts each in R0, R1, R2
Thanks to the huge number, (738 pieces) this set is perfect for families or groups of friends to come together and have fun building complex structures and together experience a new way of seeing' objects.
-90 struts each in B0, B1, B2
-60 struts each in Y0, Y1, Y2
-36 struts each in R0, R1, R2
Ice Crystals and Stars
These special 90 pieces of Zometool are an ideal gift for anyone that hasn't yet had the fun of trying out these kind of construction sets. As the name says, this set is about the amazing symmetric structures of ice crystals and stars.
-18 struts in B0
-30 struts in B1
-12 struts in B2
