    Curiously, the connector that my dad used 40 years ago to build our house (which is still standing) isn’t in this compilation. He used 1.5″ wide 12″ long steel straps on each pair of struts for the hexes (or cut in half for the pentas), one on the inside and one on the outside, tied together at the center by a 1/2″ x 5″ bolt.  The straps were bolted to the struts with 1/4″ x 4.5″ bolts. Drilling the holes in the struts to line up on the inside and outside was tricky.

    So, what you’re saying is that my real length will need to be longer because ends are bent?

    • nixiebunny says:

      Real length is longer because the holes aren’t drilled right at the end of the strut. You gotta have some metal to drill the hole through.

      Unless you’re just being silly.

    Yep, great resource I have been relying on this site for designing my backyard geodesic dome.
