I tried printing the first connector, but the piece came out pretty flat, not rounded. Is it supposed to be this way? Any advice for printing I’d appreciate. I’m using a makerbot mini.

Hi lschwenk,

The pieces will not print perfectly rounded. I would make sure that you are printing with rafts on and with supports disabled.

Thanks did you just 3D print the connectors or is there a place on Amazon I can purchase those too. Sorry for the amount of questions but I'm new to this very cool

No problem! Yes you can 3D print all of the pieces included in the Thing Files section (print several of each). If you don't have access to a 3D printer, you can use the Order This Printed button above and have someone print for you through 3DHubs or Print a Thing.

Where can I order the connectors and straws that fit together need pointed to the correct spot I'm new to this sorry

A set for bridge building would be awesome

Agree with Techmech, we've seen a few different people tweak the prompt to build bridges instead of towers, and it works great!

Do you mean connectors for spaghetti instead of straws? This project easily lends itself to bridge building already.

Hey, great project, I am a retired teacher, but still active on my school, helping with 3D projects, this one seems to me very helpfully. I try it first at home with my grandchildren, thank you!!!

Awesome, let us know how it goes!

Hey, great tutorial! Keep them coming!

Thank you! More coming soon.
