Do you have any pictures of your design or maybe a sketch, or even a description of your tower? i would love to hear from you.
Happy to be here

First tower of the season.

Mass: 8.4g

Mass held: >15kg (probably around 25-30kg)
20-30kg is based off of estimates. We only had a max 500g scale so it is a pain to measure more.

Ratio = 15000/8.4 = 1786

Our ghetto chain ended up breaking before the tower so it may have held more, but it was already over max weight so it doesn't matter.

To put that score into perspective my best bridge last year was around 1500.

Division C. Tower was only 59.9 cm though due to miscalculation. But the difference should be minimal.

Assuming you could make the tower lighter, but with the same efficiency of ~3000.. isn't that already a national placing tower??
