4-V1 – Strut Identification
4a-V2 – Installing Base Struts
Note: This video shows a 26′ dome. On the 18′ dome, the process is the same except there is only one length of base strut and does not utilize any backer rod.
4a-V3 – Strut by Strut Dome Assembly
Note: This video shows a 26′ dome. The process is the same but follow the strut pattern as shown on the 3D Paper Model.
4-V4 Hub Alignment
Note: This video shows alignment on a 26′ Dome. On a 18′ dome there will be no “B” strut between the pentagon hubs. Simply make sure that the base of the pentagon hubs are level.
