Where did all these dowels come from?

I don't see how that could move.

Seems to work with pencils.

Note the triangle is not connected to the square as end needs to be connected to end but the triangle does not need to be connected to the square?
Note while if we assume infinite thinness of the dowel the triangle has to be larger than the square for this to work if the dowel has the right thickness this can be accounted for.

A 3-dimensional object viewed on a 2-dimensional plane does not become 1-dimensional.
Since we are dealing with a 2-D world, I was going on the assumption that the dowels were lines.

Actually I have a couple of them.
PT nice to see you again.
