Fig. 724.10:
  1. A six-strut tensegrity tetrahedron shows central-angle turbining.
  2. The three-strut tensegrity octahedron. The three compression struts do not touch each other as they pass at the center of the octahedron. They are held together only at their terminals by the comprehensive, triangular tension net. It is the simplest form of tensegrity.
  3. The 12-strut tensegrity cube, which is unstable.
