Zometool is a unique 31-zone system that takes
three dimensional geometric ball-and-stick construction to its highest level. Available in
kits of various sizes, Zometool is a powerful design tool and educational toy for kids and
hobbyists, students, teachers and researchers.
Zome System is a masterpiece of technology. Color- and shape-coded
parts integrate the concepts of number, shape and vector into a fascinating toy. The
pieces are made using the math which governs the growth of cells, crystals, and other
natural forms. Zome System builds an amazing variety of structures impossible to make with
any other hands-on learning tool. Versatile and precise. No other modeling system comes close.
Precision-molded in ABS plastic, Zometool models spatial structures representing
hyperspaces of up to 31 dimensions, geodesic space-frame structures, molecular models,
including quasicrystals and
The simple elegance of Zometool
allows anyone to make complex geometric models with little effort. Of course, kids benefit
the most from Zometool, which allows them to build vivid, memorable structures that appeal
to the eye, attract the heart, and sharpen the mind.

|You don't have to be a rocket scientist to
enjoy Zometool... but we love it too!.
- Dr. David Noever, NASA Staff Scientist
Beautifully made - the perfect construction kit for icosahedral
quasicrystalline models, and for many structures of mathematical interest.
The Zometool considerably simplifies the
procedure of construction and unifies the study of space frame structures into one
coherent system, of great educational value in the teaching of solid geometry, science,
art, engineering and architecture.

Artists, architects, engineers, physicists, parents, and
teachers love Zome System for its amazing flexibility and educational value. But kids know
the real secret: it's FUN!
