Hi Drew, These hubs are interesting. By choosing particular length rods you can make geodesic domes with them also.

Yes, that's pretty neat eh! If you notice the other versions of the fabric allow the ball joint to telescope in and out, making a nicer fabric feel, but not allowing for a stiff structure. There's a couple of other interesting "hub" systems on thingiverse. I hadn't seen them before I drew mine (I originally printed mine back in 2015) but design tends to be convergent.
