`ggGeoDome`

A

**geodesic dome**is a hemispherical thin-shell structure (lattice-shell) based on a**geodesic**polyhedron. The triangular elements of the**dome**are structurally rigid and distribute the structural stress throughout the structure, making**geodesic domes**able to withstand very heavy loads for their size.

`ggPolyhedron`

You can build a number using the Geometry Gym Polyhedron tool. Please

*right click*on the components type input to view all the available polyhedron types. Use the simple example below to test for yourself.Example

`ggTessellation`

A tessellation of a flat surface is the tiling of a plane using one or more geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps. In mathematics, tessellation can be generalized to higher dimensions and a variety of geometries.

The tessellation tools allows for you to pack over 10 different pattern types onto a planar Brep surface. Hoover over the type input to view all the available polyhedron types. Use the simple example below to test for yourself.
