how we erect a 3v dome frame.
lay-out 5 A struts and bolt together with one bolt.
Tighten first bolt finger-tight.
Layout 5 B struts around first 5 A struts to be top horizontal plane of struts of dome.
Lay out 10 C struts mirroring the first A struts opposite of 5 previously laid struts.
Lay out 5 more B struts in line with first 5 A struts.
Inserting bolt from above, start with the top and go down, as well as staggering left to right, as you add the struts. Barely screw the nut onto the bolt to leave the struts with plenty of maneuverability so they are not bent later.
Rotate the struts up so the hub may sit on the ground.
lift it from the center
straiten it up
lay out 10 C struts for next “horizontal” row of struts
lay out 5 A struts in line with previous A/B lines of struts.
Lay out 10 B struts to connect at same hub as previous 5 A struts.
lay out 10 C struts to connect at point with 4 other C struts.
attach the new struts loosely, then tighten previous row of bolts.
lift, lay out
