Technic Triangles

Kevin Knuth has posted some nice, TECHNIC equilateral triangles of various sizes. His triangles are for a drive system; however, clever folks can find other uses for them as well.

Several of the triangles shown have lists of parts and building instructions here.

Triangles built in this way are put under a bit of extra load. Is any one worried that the connectors will be under enough stress to cause them to break?

You're correct, this isn't a "perfect" LEGO construction... but try it, it's very close. The slight stress on the pins or beams isn't enough to come close to breaking them, although for some arrangements the long-term stresses might very subtly warp the beams. Still, not something I'd worry about... and I generally try for "perfect" geometry.
