In many structures which are made from small components, we can distinguish between two or three component types: elements, nodes and connectors. In a leverwork there is only one type of component which means that a component is at the same time element, node and connector. The components self-connect to form the structure. Leverworks can also bee seen as a kind of fabric made by short-distance weaving with more or less stiff components. Each component is jammed by other components from above and below.
