Top, front and side views:

With surface shading

All the triangles of the 3 frequency 5/8 dome are halved symetrically.

By turning the domefor Edge Zenith orientation it can be an exact 1/2
sphere: **the Bucky
Ball divided twice.**

For a 40 ft. diameter dome one 4 x 8 sheet cut diagonally
can cover one of the main triangles.

105 sheets would be required for this 40 ft. dome. With Max use of
8 ft lumber, a dome of 37 feet can be made: the longest

strut will be 8 ft. There are 270 struts. Here is the 1/5th section
pattern for the paper model:

Five of these pattern sections will make the dome model.

Aluminum hub Connector Kit for 2 x 4s with a small section of a 22
ft diameter dome assembled.

Note that there are 2 sizes of hubs, larger are for the 10-strut and
12-strut hubs.

4-way connections are made with Simpson Strong Tie connectors and large
screws into the X1 strut ends.
