Building blocks of 2019
2019-12-31 — Hans-Jörg
I really like building blocks, but I don’t like to spend money. I also often have very detailed ideas about what I want. So this year I made some building blocks of my own.
First I made building blocks from corrugated cardboard, because I wanted blocks with all three dimensions different from each other.
As usual, I enjoyed working with corrugated cardboard, but any more complex building revealed that my idea was not smart.
Later in 2019 I printed building blocks with my old cheap 3d printer. I wanted them to be very tiny.
Aside from the poor quality of the print, they are just too light to stack.
These were definitely not my last experiments with building blocks, but I also look into isometric graph paper—it’s easy to store and you never run out of blocks and colors.
