Hybrid long-squat flexeez rendition of the X-module tensegrity

The two tensegrity struts run diagonally across each flexeez in a consistent way throughout the model: either pin-pin or hole-hole. Adding these consistent diagonals to Mrs. Stott's expansion turns it into the polyhedral operation called snub.

 

Tendons run along all four "swoops" of each flexeez. Some, connected to the same end points, become redundant parallel tendons, others, connected at each end to the same endpoint, contract into degenerate loops.
