Truss dome

How do I draw a truss dome with a series of radial trusses and a tensile ring like the one below?

Your answer is excellent, thank you :pray: :rose: :rose:, but I wanted a three-dimensional truss arch. How can I make this 2D truss 3D?


I designed this truss myself, but I want to design like your truss, which is a joint and triangular ground connection, but I can not!

You said you were going to make a dome, wasn’t it?
IMHO, in order to make a dome, the type of truss you think is probably too much of a structure when you do polar array. :wink:
If you keep thinking about it, the basic algorithm will be the same, so it won’t be difficult, so try to think about it more.

Yes, I use polar array, but whatever I do to connect the two arched trusses to each other will not work?


I can in a parallel truss, but it does not work in the truss whose code you designed :pensive: :cry:
Please help me :pray:

OK. Here’s how I would go about your second thought type of truss with “not too much structure” way.
Of course it’s different fr your sketch.
You’ll need Lunchbox plugin.
