    Ever since the first postings about the 3 person tensegrity stand like 10 years ago, it seems that everyone assumes the lower triangle has to be smaller (and therefore the stand has to be staked out...

    This is way late, but it seems like the other posters weren't really answering your actual question and others may wonder the same thing. The short answer is that you can absolutely make a turtledog...

    This is a 1/4 scale model of a standard 4 strut tensegrity prism. Its coolness is that you only need 4 poles for 4 people. If you do in the proportions shown here, it's totally freestanding. The...

    Variant of XX with possible advantages
