The dome base is level with the ground/foundation. In most cases there are fewer varieties of strut (edge) types (lengths), but triangles are more visibly different, compared to conventional geometry (Class 1 Method 1 in Hugh Kenner's Geodesic Math) that gives more uniform triangle dimensions. The 3, 4, and 5 frequency icosahedral domes are presented here.

3 frequency dome

3 frequency Edge Zenith dome (rotated 31.7°)

A family building a 20ft. GD3 EZ

4 frequency dome

4 frequency dome rotated 31.7° makes a Hexagon Zenith.

Half-triangles on the lower level make the flat base.

5 frequency dome
