Mueller, Copyright (c) 2005, 2006, 2007, last updated Tue, February 16, 2016 Overview of Variants Since the possibilities are so vast I have selected a couple of platonic and archimedean solids - as I previously studied in - which seem reasonable for dome constructions, and created variants with up 1000 struts, and max 30 different strut lengths. Clean Coders Uncle Bob Download Free on this page. Amount of Struts vs Strut Variance Note: Click on the graphic, and click 'full scale' or scroll down, and press 'Print' link at the bottom of the page. In the graphic you actually see why the Icosahedron looks best, it has the least strut variance, which is an indication of more or less similiar triangles through the entire structure. And as realized before, the L n variants additionally provide better results than the nV counterparts. The Octahedron variants, on the other hand, have high strut variances as seen above. I personally like the Cuboctahedron variants, but they have more strut variance than the Icosahedron, in other words, at the end it's your personal choice and favours which lead you to choose a polyhedral geodesic dome variant, the list above and this graphic may just assist you in your overall considerations.
Dome calculation tools. This is a free geodesice calc program. Using a geodesic dome as a structure for a clay project demo. As you see the bottom isn't entirely even, for heavy construction you have to level them. 3V 5/9 Icosahedron Dome In some literature this variant is also called '3V 5. Geodesic Dome Calculator DIY Dome Formula Calculator Our geodesic dome calculator will calculate the length and number of struts for 2V, 3V and 4V geodesic domes.
