        Very nice, Jim. I'm looking forward to seeing the roof.

Why don't you try to build the roof just by using stripwood rather than trying to design it on the computer? I would.

          Thanks Rich,

          I just enjoy trying to solve these build issues on the computer more. Keeps my brain active.

                Thanks George, the twin conical towers are are a challenge to be sure. If you look closely at the photos that Bernd posted, You see that they are actually 18 sided polygons. 9 sides on the left, 9 on the right. Each panel is 20 degrees of a circle, and that is how they cover the 180 degrees to return. A simple 'dunce hat' would have been easier for me. [:-dunce]

                  Jim, you got me thinking. If I understand it right, you can work up a roof template using CAD. I picked a 20' radius for the silo to show how it works out.

                    George, the trouble I'm having is connecting the two 'halves together as one piece. the points of the two domes are 75mm apart getting the CAD program to do that triq...er trick, is a new manouver for me to figure out. The template looks great.

                      Jim, are you looking at something like this?

                        Yes! I'm actually looking at a plate of Ravioli and Italian sausage. [:-chef]

                            Ok, you answered my question that I replied to in the PM. I should stop by the shop more often.

                              Hold the phone on those conical roofs. I count 7 segments.

                                Bernd, the straight connecting pieces are also segments.
