Icosa Dome VB - Vertical Modification Type 2

Description - base connectors are pushed outward to make 5 vertical sides. Result is added floor area relative to the original dome, 5 vertical places for windows and doors, 10 lower triangles are enlarged, and only slightly more complicated to build. Top 10 struts remain unchanged. This makes the Type 2 Mod. more practical and easier.

Reference measurements in this example of the 2 x 4 dome:
Radius: 75"
Top 10 strus are 77"
Bottom 5 struts are 96"
Height of 5 vertical base triangles: 76"
Total height: 117" - almost 10 ft.

Same X1 addition and clustering methods seen on previous pages can be used on this version also.
