42" Dome Question - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • 42" Dome Question

    I have started on a 42" pompeii dome. I used 21 inches for a final dome height, but have been reading the high dome model should be around 19-20 inches. I have about 3 chains up from floor level completed. Should I change my template at this point, or is this calculation one that's not so critical?

    You're probably already done with it, but it caught my interest.
    I graphed the different options and it looks like you could change the profile without much difficulty.
    From all I've read, either of the heights 19-21" should work fine for your oven.
    What did your final dome height wind up being?

    My 42-inch build

      Mklingles analyzed the radiant heat distribution from domes with different heights (2-3in) and summarized the variances as insignificant. As long as your door height remains close to the ideal 63% of dome height you're fine.

        Thanks for the reply guys. I ended up reprofiling my template toward the top to end up with about 19 - 19.5 inches. I'm still at the inner arch transition with the build. The build is in the Pompeii section under Pensacola Build. Thanks again for your help.

          Actually, I profiled to a 20 inch dome height with a 12.5 inch inner arch for a ratio of around 63%.
