dome connectors



These are the steel tube (emt) star connectors made for a 3 fr. 5/8 dome
(not all shown).
255 pieces make up the 61 connectors. Struts can be made from any
suitable rigid material, and dome size changed by proportionally
resizing the struts. For the test section I used square boards with ends
rounded on a router about 1 inch (2.54 cm) from end. Bend angles of
tubes match strut length type. Seperate tubes have  ability to rotate on
a center bolt when required for automatic adjusting of the triangle face
angles. Max. number of tubes stacked on a connector is 5, for the
pentagonal.
