I have been looking into geodesic domes for awhile now and was always turned off by the complicated measurements, angles, cuts, and connector options. Recently I was contacted to share this little genius connector that makes the process extremely simple and less expensive.

The connector is made of a touch and durable plastic that can withstand quite a bit of stress. Each connector is simple, inexpensive, and will allow for almost any material to be used as struts.

I will go into more detail on how to actually build one in a later article. For the simple dome I built here you just need two different length struts. Struts can be dowels, sticks, lumber cut into strips, or whatever you can think of that has a solid end to screw into.

The connectors fasten to the struts using a screw with a flat washer head (truss screws or other screws with a washer). It is best to use hardwood struts and predrill the holes so you don't split the wood, especially when using thinner material.

There are instructions provided with these connectors tells you exactly how long to cut the struts and how to connect them together using the screws, very simple!

Follow up video coming soon with a larger dome and step by step instructions on how to build it. Please check out the Kickstarter page here - to order a set for yourself!
