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.
Refer to this blog post on uses for the geodesic dome.
In geometry, a polyhedron is simply a three-dimensional solid which consists of a collection of polygons, usually joined at their edges. To learn more about polyhedron visit wolfram.
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.
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.
