highest tower with fewest pieces

Hello everyone!

How does one build the highest possible tower with the smallest number of geomag pieces? My attempt in the attached pictures was relatively stable. Earlier I had built a higher tower with a single tetrahelix (see the discussion on that topic), which held up only very precariously, in part because I could make it stand only approximately vertical. Would I have succeeded better if I had paid attention to the orientation of the magnets (which I disregarded entirely)?

What are your experiences? What about you collectors with thousands of pieces: how high did you ever get?

I've had a couple of attempts at towers using a module I came up with.


And again using "double scale"


In both cases they're around the 6ft+ range 8-)

Second one doesn't look too high but I had to take the shot from halfway up the stairs :lol:
