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,

Thanks, Jeff,

After seeing your gears & geodesics, I reckoned you might find mine mutually-interesting. :handshake:
