Geodesic dome trouble


New member
hey there, new to solidworks...

i'm trying to make a geodesic dome with extruded parts.

it seems that when i extrude the triangles they "go through" each other. I thought of using trim-surface to cut out the edges but not go.

I tried adding a draft to the extrude but im not sure about the angle that will make all the parts fit.
