Build a Geodesic Dome


From this page you can calculate the characteristics of a geodesic dome as the length of the rods,connection type and have an idea on the final size and the amount of material required.

For my geodesic dome I chose a radius of 0.4 meters and as a section of the rods 3x5mm.

Beams:   

As regards the rods were made by Laser Cut on a panel of MDF thickness of 5mm.

  Nodes:

As far as the nodes were made by 3D printing wih PLA  material





 


Download

You can download here the folder containing the file to be sent to the Laser Cutter .dxf and .stl files to open with a software for slicing (Care, Repetier, etc ..).
