Built something nice? Let the other Geomag fans see what you've done.

Greetings from a new member - Interlaced Christmas Tree 2020

Postby Eric » Sat Nov 14, 2020 1:23 am

Hi!

Is there anybody in there?
Light was on, door open. It seemed warm and welcoming.
Music is off. Everybody seems to have left. Is the party over ?
I brought my CDs. Gonna try to put some music on ;-)
Maybe it'll bring back one or two of you.
Hope so.

Long story short. I'm 45 and new to Geomag (short rods) thanks to the first french lockdown last April.
After being so frustrated by the lack of rods trying to build the Eiffel Tower (who among you has not tried? ;-)),
I managed to make myself an affordable and sufficient collection on the second-hand market to have a little fun :-)

I've read almost every message and seen every photo on the forum, the Flickr group and the wikia, plus other sites (Rafael's, geomagmasters, ...).
You all guys did an amazing work!
I've learnt a lot copying what you did and following your tutorials. So I think it is important to share and post photos so that others will learn the same way I did with you.
Even if the last message was posted more than a year and a half ago, each time I came here as guest, there were unregistered users online (if it's not google's bot).

I'm pretty sure owners of long rods also come here (thanks to search engines) looking for new territories to explore.
And long rods don't fear the dodecahedron. Isn't it Peter? ;-)

So here's my first contribution in response to Tychi's second to last message in 2017.
To cheer you up during this difficult time for everyone, here is my 2020 Christmas tree at different stages of growth :-)
(On the same principle as Peter Jepsen's snakes but not flexible: 3 distinct structures interlaced through a rigid spine).

Let's call it the Interlaced Christmas Tree or ICT :-)

Cheers.

PS: I'll post the howto later in another message
PPS: Peter kindly gave me some homework. I'll tell you about that later ;-)

Final attempt - rather sequoia-like ;-)

Hello and welcome to the Forum Eric!
Let's see if we can wake up the old slumbering giants a bit..
The best way is to get some idea ping-pongs started I think.

Thank you for sharing your tree. :)

Thanks Peter!
Let's hope that the geomag will come out of their boxes for at least a little while ;-)

Artistic attempts with the ICT chain ;-)

Hi, welcome to the forum as well. Your tree is nice, but narrow for my purposes. I also go through other buildings, but I will not write everywhere. I'm still building, see my blog.

Hi Tychi,

I took a look at your blog. Once again you made wonderful and original models :o . I like your Christmas tree with the garlands and the gifts (which are very nice) underneath. And hats off for your amazing big plate :shock:
I'm so glad to see that there is still a little bit of activity around Geomag on the web :D

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year :)

Eric, thank you. The big plate was a challenging construction, but then it was solid, which was great.
