Curved-Fold Cardboard Geodesic Dome
Geodesic dome, composed of curved-fold cardboard struts • See original dome, at the link:
srchlab - Curved-Fold-Dome
(Plenty of photos)

Original dome diameter: 7 meters • Such a dome can be made, instead, of sheet metal, assembled with pop-rivets

SketchUp 3D model available • 3D Warehouse: Curved-Fold Cardboard Geodesic Dome • Patterns for struts included • Four strut definitions • The design of the strut "end flaps" allows for construction without hubs
Loading...
Starweave - Icosa
Geodesic weave • Icosahedron symmetry • Geodesic class: I • Frequency: 1v Simplest of the icosahedral "starweaves" • Only two different segment lengths required • All segments lie on "great circles"

If you can't tell, already, I'm enamored of geodesic constructs.

It is my hope that these deviations will inspire others.

Physicist/geometer,

Well, the Kerkythea rendering program does "prettify" my efforts, quite a bit! :clap:

Thanks, Ron,

I've seen some of your polyhedral woodwork, here at DeviantART, long before joining.

I kinda figured you'd like some of my 3D computer modeling, seeing how you, too, are enamored of polyhedral & geodesic constructs.

Computers are the future, but its funny how it takes me alot more patience to sit for hours clicking a mouse than ripping strips thru the saw. Your pieces are awesome, some just too difficult to make in wood I would think.
