Hi there all,
I just begin to make a project for a geodesic greenhouse using a hex sample of TaffGoch here:
I want to ask before… I have a doubt for the resistance…
So what you are think about ?
I think the triangle is more resistant than the hexagon…
So is the hexa sufficiently resistant please ?
Thanks in advance
Use triangle. later if you wish to build it, you can contact me @ https://www.haring.ch/en/services/dome-structures/
Due to transport, the lenght of each beams are about <12m,
Triangles are required. All hex domes that you’ve seen have triangles incorporated, in some manner, such as a sub-frame.
You might consider tension elements, to complement compression elements, as depicted in this photo:
Thank you guys for the answer.
But do you think that is only little less resistance or do you think that will broke please ?
I like a lot the hexagonal form of the dome.
And I do a lot of work to put all wood pieces to the model.
I also so a lot of hex dome constructed on web.
Please let me know
You can reach me by email firstname.lastname@example.org
What is the size (diameter and height)?
It’s a little dome … 8 mt diameter and about 3,3 mt height.
I’ll do all by myself in my garden.
The wood will be 40/70 mm … I’ll wonder if will be ok for the 8 mt diameter
Thanks again all
With hexagons or other polygons with more than 3 vertices, all your corner joints must be rigid.
I’ll use an iron hub like this one (front and back also)
Do you think will be ok ?
Thanks a lot
