Zometool and vZome user Mark Dimberg proposed an idea for an adapter that would simulate a red strut and one or more green struts sharing a single pentagon hole in a Zome ball. Relying on 3D printing technology (e.g. Shapeways), we can easily design several variations on this idea.

This page documents the design, still a work-in-progress.

Using the adapter, in terms of existing Zome parts
A start on the design
finalizing the design

The design is complete, but not yet ready for printing. First, the mesh is not 2-manifold, a topological requirement for slicing. Second, the tip and holes need to be replaced, as they are still placeholders.
