Temcor Geodesic Dome Roofs

Geodesic dome roof tessellations • Developer: Donald L. Richter • Temcor, Inc. was started by Richter, after Kaiser Aluminum dropped the production of geodesic domes and roofs • Typically, Temcor dome roofs employ frequency-14 tessellation, with the two (or more) outermost rows of triangles omitted • This practice permitted a controlled, smaller inventory of parts, necessary for economical company operation • The other frequencies presented in this model are not employed by Temcor, but the subdivision method is still valid for frequencies other than 14v, and may be of use to the DIY dome builder • Benefit of this subdivision method is the low count of (A) unique strut length, and (B) similar isosceles triangles #buckminster #bucky #dome #fuller #Geodesic #richter #temcor
