Our new welded stock hub

Archimedes Design is introducing a new hub to our product line-up. Pictured below this new hub is a more economical way to produce our truncated icosahedral joints. The cast steel is a thing of beauty and will last forever, but it could be a little overkill.

This new production hub will come standard with all of our basic frames and kits. At 13 ounces it is super lightweight.

The cost to produce the cast hubs was going to break us if we didn’t start charging more for the domes. We chose a different route. You can always upgrade to the cast steel model, especially if you are considering domes with more than our standard 10 facets. All product pages have both options available. 

We are committed to quality, but know our products need to be affordable. This evolution is another step in that process.
