Tensegrity Block Parabolic Dome

Tensegrity Block Parabolic Dome

Description
Tensegrity Blocks consist of hinged struts radiating from a central node and tensioning cables (see link). In this version of my parabolic dome posted earlier, a truss of hexagonal and triangular blocks supports plates of sandwiched UV-resistant polycarbonate plastic, aerogel, and liquid crystal layers. Some of SketchUp's autosurfacing has been left in for visual interest. #collector #dish #dome #domes #geodesic #geodesic_dome #parabola #parabolic #parabolic_dome #paraboloid #paraboloidal #paraboloidal_dome #solar #tensegrity #tensegrity_blocks #truss
