Practical Structural & Architectural Modeling for real-life analysis
Probably the most realistic construction toy in the market today, Mola is an interactive physical model that simulates the behavior of architectural structures. Including a set of modular pieces easily combinable with magnetic assemblers, with Mola you can translate paper plans into reliable 3D scale models that will obey the laws of nature just like a real life building would.
With Mola Structural Kit 2, you can compose different structural systems like cantilevers, stayed columns, geodesics, and more. Quicker than making a computer model, use Mola to visualize the movements and deformations of their elements, and have a sensory and proven experience of structural behaviour using your own hands.
Just like a professional tool, Mola comprises a Collection of Kits with which to assemble from suspended bridges to tension members right in the top of your desk. Whether you are an Architect or Engineer or just love the concept, get Mola to develop an intuitive knowledge of structural behaviour to help you through the conception phase of a project – or experiment, learning about the real viability of buildings you come up with!
You can visit the kit’s manual on PDF to have a glimpse of use and possibilities of this toy for your practice.
With this set you can build different structural configurations and visualize many situations linked to structural concepts such as:
- Continuous beam
- Buckling effective length
- Stayed columns
- Trussed beam
- Multi-span frame
Price already includes Brazilian duties and importation paid.
