Hi all, I've created a new geodesic hub design that offers a cheap and easy way to build domes. And I think it would be very useful for building chicken coops. I'm basically re-purposing an existing packaging product that is currently used to suspend spools in square boxes. This is typically a throw-away product, which is why it is so cheap. Let me know what you think. I recently showed the hubs at the Milwaukee Maker Faire. I had kids building a small dome inside a bigger dome. It was pretty fun. The domes also held up pretty well to two days of abuse by the little ones. Here are a couple of photos (with a close-up of the hub) from a small dome that I built for halloween. I've also posted a video on Youtube: In addition to feedback, anybody who is interested in getting there hands on them should shoot me an email at [email protected]. If you are willing to build a coop and let me know about your experience I'd be willing to ship you a kit of hubs. I'm interested in working with folks who can help refine the design; especially how best to cover it so predators can't get in. Thanks for your time. Andrew Cegielski. Milwaukee, WI.
