Connecting joint design, both functional and aesthetic, is crucial for the structural rigidity of the space frame. Design requirements include easy fabrication without recourse to advanced technology, minimum joint eccentricity with necessary tolerances, effective maintenance, mass production, support point flexibility, and production cost. Connection techniques of jointing systems is divided into three: with a node (sphere, cylinder and disk), without a node and prefabricated units. Such proprietary systems include Mero, Space Deck, Triodetic, Unistrut (Moduspan), Oktaplatte and Nodus. Also, methods of assembly & erection such as scaffold, block assembly and lift-up are catered specifically based on the efficient hoisting requirements of space frame types.
