Dome

Jump to: navigation, search

Geodesic Domes are intertwined with the history of Disorient. Domes covered with video are a signature of Disorient.

A geodesic dome is an almost spherical shell structure based on a network of great circles (geodesics) lying approximately on the surface of a sphere. The geodesics intersect to form triangular elements that have local triangular rigidity and also distribute the stress across the entire structure.[1]

Acquired September 2004 (Gifted by SleepDep)
Cover: orange tarps
Struts stored at Dock.
Shipping volume (struts only, hardware and cover shipped in shared black travel crate): 7 cu/ft

Notes:
20120713 - 5/8 config installed at Warsaw for Disorient presents: COMPRESSOR.
20120709 - John Dingee fabricates more struts. Dome now have enough struts for 5/8 config.
20120610 - Strut count (Eye) A:32 B:49 C:75
20120610 - Enough struts for 3/8 config (installed at Figment 2012), some missing struts to complete 5/8 config.
20120610 - When fabricating more struts, consider making enough to complete 3/4 config.
20120610 - Struts color coding not consistent with Desert Dome diagram used for assembly. Remap to: green=yellow, purple=blue, blue=red
20120610 - Need to purchase hardware (bolts, nuts and washers). Until then, use Dome #4 hardware.
