Mola Structural Kit 1 – Practical Structural & Architectural Modeling for real-life analysis

Mola is an interactive physical model that simulates the behavior of architectural structures. The model consists of a set of modular parts, which are connected through magnetism, allowing countless combinations.

With Mola Structural Kit 1, you can build different structural systems, visualize the movements and deformations of their elements, and have a sensory and proven experience of structural behavior using your own hands.

The aim of such study is to develop, from the experience with the model, an intuitive knowledge of the structural behavior, which is essential for Aarchitects and Engineers, particularly in the conception phase of a project.

The Mola Structural Kit 1 requires no prior technical knowledge for you to start studying the structures. Its use is very simple and instinctive and is applicable to both professionals and students, as well as anyone interested in the subject.

This qualitative analysis tool can be used as a resource to conventional methods of study, conception and verification of structures.

Price already includes Brazilian duties and importation paid.

Magnetic assembly.
