A bridge design inspired by the sketches of Leonardo da Vinci. Thanks to the friction between the individual pieces the bridge holds together without any glue, nails or screws.
The assembly is a little bit tricky and takes a bit of practise but is great fun!

One kit includes 21 pieces which is enough to build a bigger bridge than the one you can see in the pictures.

As I just started selling this kit and can't estimate the demand it will be made on order and can take therefore some time.

I published this model as a open source design, so if you don't want to ship dead trees around the world, download the files from Thingiverse and make the kit yourself or get it made locally!

Dimensions of a bridge using all parts:
Span: ca. 345mm / 13 1/2 inch
Heigth: ca. 150mm / 6 inch
Width: ca. 120mm / 4 3/4 inch

All orders ship via the Austrian post service which offers multiple shipping options:
* economy (which is my standard shipping option): this is the cheapest possibility to get your order. However the shipment is not insured and you have no guaranteed tracking. Also this takes quite long to deliver (up to 4 weeks to the US ans 2 weeks in Europe).
* priority: also no insurance and guaranteed tracking but the shipment should arrive faster (about half the time of economy shipments).
* tracking: with this option you get tracking by the Austrian post and also the shipment is insured in case something happens to it. I highly recommend getting at least the tracking upgrade.
