Model Building Hints

Color & Shape Show the Way!

Each Zome strut connects to holes of matching shapes. Blue struts fit only into rectangular holes; yellow struts into triangular holes, and red struts into pentagonal holes. This makes it possible to build even complex models with ease.

Tighten Your Assembly

Make sure each stub goes all the way into the hole, with the shoulder of the strut tight to the face of each node. Tighten up your assembly as you go. Keep your hands close together, and always apply pressure along the length of the struts.

It's OK to Bend Struts

To fit a strut into a tight spot, you may need to bend the strut slightly between your fingers before you insert it. Place the stub of one end in its socket, and let the other pop in.

Remove Struts as Straight As Possible

When removing a strut, pull it out as straight as possible.
