    Thank you very much!

    It only takes a few minutes to set it up, but with rings it will go a long way towards idiot proof... only one way will it work.

    I appreciate the kind words... it has been in the works for a while.

    Over a year ago, I tried to find someone at NCSU who could help me calcluate the loads on a tensegrity. No one responded. Turns out I did not need to calculate loads, but rather to share them.

    Did you ever build a bigger one? And how about a multi-hammock setup?

    Nope... we used the strut material in building a rabbit run.

    The important thing is that by making the X Tensegrity stand we solved the problem with the previous Tensegrity stand. Just lash the struts at the intersection, so that each provides support for the other.

    The X Tensegrity is simply a small 3 strut Tensegrity tipped over on it's side. If you build a large 3 or 4 stut Tensegrity stand, just orient it such that the struts cross right by each other. Essentially, that means making the base smaller... so you may need guys to keep it from tipping over. Anyway, with the struts touching at the crossing point, lash them there, and you are all set!
