Hi,
How Can attached the Triangular Patch to the Geodesic Dome to repeat on all faces and align correctly?. I don't seem to get it right.

Best,

Maher,

You can't do this as you would expect because all segments on the geodesic sphere are not the same length, and the angles between the edges are also different. Perhaps you could use the Derivative Extrusion with the Perpendicular to Face option, and then modify the results?

Thanks!
it does work, but would be such a tedious task.
In this context, I would like to suggest something:

Can we have an automation to tasks? I know we currently can automate transformations.
But what about automate procedures, like recording macro and run it on selected objects. I guess it will be more of making an interface for a script. I am not sure how this would work ..

Best,
Maher
