So how do you handle the tape anchors? I assume that you don't run tape over the roof from side to side when you make them, or you'd end up cutting your folding hinges when disassembling. Or do you even use tape anchors with that design?

I'm hoping the paint will have given the tape some kind of UV protection, but we'll see next August when I unwrap it. The semi-folding roof design worked like a charm and I'm glad I went to the effort to convert it - we battled annoying gusts of wind all afternoon on the 26th and had a very small window to put it up, only having to make one roof seam really sped up the process.jkisha wrote:Actually, the UV degradation of the tape is the main flaw in the folding Hexayurt design. If you have to replace the tape each year, I'm having a hard time justifying the extra work involved in the folding design only to have to redo it each year anyway.
Now if I ever find a bidirectional filament tape that is designed to resist UV radiation, I'd change my mind rather quickly.
