The original ENGINO® system, launched back in 2007, consisted of only 18 basic components. These were designed to be as modular as possible so that with just a few different parts many models could be created. At that time, when ENGINO® was still a small start-up, the available budget was very small, and every new part meant investing in another injection tool. The famous construction toy giant at that time, had a library of more than 8000 different shapes, and the small ENGINO® team was up against a seemingly impossible challenge:
How to develop a building system with less than 20 parts and be at par with a system of 8000 parts!
