3v Dome calculation tool
Enter the radius of the dome, then click the calculate button.
To build a 3v geodesic dome framework you will need:
30 lengths of 'A' size struts
40 lengths of 'B' size struts
50 lengths of 'C' size struts
6 five way hubs
25 six way hubs
15 four way hubs - around the base of the dome.
To build a 3v geodesic dome using panels you will need:
45 'X' panels - see diagram below.
30 'Y' panels - see diagram below.
The plan below shows all the panels and struts colour coded to assist with assembly.
If you are building a 3v geodesic dome using hub and strut construction the colour coded diagram below shows the angles you will need to cut each beam. The angles have been rounded up/down to the nearest half degree, which is more accurate than most mitre cutting saws.
