Hello Rhino Wizards,

I’m trying to model a geodesic dome and all the tutorials on youtube make a sphere and then cover it in triangular patterns whereas I am trying to get an accurate and specifically sized one.

I basically have to create pentagons, hexagons and half hexagons and join them together at a certain angle to create slightly 3D/relief versions of them and I am looking for commands to help me do this. I’ve seen OrientOnSrf and I think this will help me join the triangles together when I have them at the desired angle.

For more detail imagine a pentagon and on each side there is a triangle that needs to be angled from the base (joining the pent) so that each of the 5 isolated points of the triangle meet a certain distance above the pentagon to create an open polysurface.

Is there a command to join all the edges adjacent to the isolated point while keeping the edge attached to the pentagon on one axis ?
