About

All of the products here are custom extensions to the Zometool geometric building system.  Furthermore, most of them can be seen in vZome, a virtual Zome modeling application.  In particular, vZome supports many strut directions that are not available from Zometool, and a number of those struts have been made available here, some even in two lengths.

Other Zometool extensions modeled here include "bobs", which are parts that are meant to replace Zome balls in models where they would be aesthetically undesirable. Single bobs let you join struts to create different, custom lengths. Double and triple bobs let you create strut intersections that respect the geometry of the figure; that is, they let you avoid introduction of false vertices.

Although all parts are shown in color, only a few are available in pre-dyed materials from Shapeways.  For most of the parts, you will need to dye or paint them to achieve the intended color (or anything but white).

A note about prices: I have no markup on any of these models. All costs go to Shapeways. Some of the products show prices that are much too high. These products were modeled as collections of separate pieces, before Shapeways changed their pricing to discourage exactly that. If you see a product you'd like to order, but at a more reasonable price, contact me so I can expedite a new model.

vZome and STL files are available for all models, upon request.
