  1. 1.0 1.1 The mass and drag are from the part config, but the game handles it massless/dragless.

The Cubic Octagonal Strut is a very small, cube-shaped strut assembly. It has stack nodes at either end, but can mount to any surface. This makes it crucial for building non-standard assemblies.

Currently (0.20.2), the Cubic Octagonal Strut has "PhysicsSignificance = 1", making it massless and dragless.


Now, with advances in technology, StrutCo brings you the Cubic Octagonal Strut - it's like a regular Octagonal Strut, but in the shape of a cube!



Cubic Octagonal Struts can be placed under the Rockomax Jumbo-64 Fuel Tank and 1.25 meter engines can be placed on the struts, which using symmetry creates "engine clusters" of up to 5 engines. The Cubic Octagonal Strut is also used to stack intakes. One stacks multiple struts, not using the part snapping feature, and then places intakes between the struts. This allows a large quantity of intakes to mount on a much smaller surface area. In addition, it allows non-radial intakes to be placed on surfaces rather than the ends of fuel tanks and other parts.
