Wholeo dome frame geometry archive 7 - strut switching

Doing the math with chord factors, I assigned numbers to strut lengths. The color codes on the struts faded, so I replaced them with the aluminum tape, a simple bar code, shown on the measurements drawing (6). In 2003, I understand the problem represented in this diagram. See the Strut Guide for how to install the frame struts.

This table shows the length in inches (from measurements), a number for the mark in aluminum tape wrapped on the strut (from measurements), the original color mark on the tube (if known), a letter (if used), and the numbers (from chord factors).
