Lotus Dome Patent (2017.10.10)
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) utility patent, number 9,783,983, can be viewed at the USPTO Web site HERE (it may not load properly, depending on your browser), and the PDF of the patent can be viewed/downloaded HERE. The drawings in the patent are based upon the thirty-foot-diameter Lotus Dome prototype.
FYI, in the USPTO PDF, the vector-based drawings have been reduced to low-resolution bitmaps, rotated into portrait mode, and don’t align properly when going sequentially from one rendering to the next. A higher-quality (TIFF) set of the drawings submitted to the USPTO can be viewed/downloaded HERE.
If it would be helpful, a numerical index of the Lotus Dome elements listed in the patent can be viewed/downloaded HERE.
