CONIC SWIVELS

  .

.

Each conic swivel has two hubs that are shaped like cones.  The hubs are

joined together by hinges so that they can rotate in opposite directions.

.

Octonic swivels - Each of the two hubs of octonic swivels are made from

.

eight isosceles triangles.  And eight isosceles triangle hinges join the hubs

.

together.  They are especially useful for modeling legs.
