Desargues' theorem in space and in the plane

Model 400

B I 3


Desargues' theorem in space and in the plane. Two planes (wood), each with a triangle (black); the side extensions (green) intersect pairwise on the line of intersection of the two planes, this is the Desargue line. The connection lines of the vertices (red fibers, tightened by weights) go through a point at each position of the plane.

Showcase of this model is Case number 27
