Here is an example of fastening parts in a perpendicular join with a common acrylic screw. Also shows joining layers together with a spring pin. You should be able to assemble any structure you need with these two techniques. Layers create a countersink for the screw head.
I’ve worked up a dozen or so other techniques for joining parts together (custom 3D printed clips, etc) but this is lowest cost and the strongest technique out of the set. No glue required.

Oh cool I’d never seen acrylic screws.
@pubultrastar I bet these might be a cool variant in your geometric builds.
Oh snap I just realized this is your first post. Well played.
Very interesting! It does look quite sturdy. A useful technique beyond acrylic, too.
Damn, that’s cool! Thanks for the nice share. I have no idea what I’ll do with it, but now I want to go buy the screws ans make some of these.
Practical projects are my favorite! Smart design. Thank you for the share!!
Huh I just looked closely at this and saw the spring pins. Nice idea, that.
Thanks Dana and welcome to the forum. Hope Mulder isn’t giving you too many problems.
My sister’s name is Dana. Lots of grief before she got married.
Wonderful share! Thank you!
