3d printing model 6: Geodesic Dome

Returning to my favourite subject, Geodesic domes. I began to think about how I could use 3d printing in order to create a geodesic dome. The photographs I often see on the internet are of large garden geodesic domes that use connectors and struts to form each triangle. 203 more words

LC Final Model: Geodesic Dome (revisited)

For my final model on the laser cutter, I decided to revisit the geodesic dome I explored for my 3rd model. After that model was only a partial success (being very difficult to assembly and often falling apart) I have been thinking of a better way to join each triangle. 285 more words

Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway

Longyearbyen is the largest permanent settlement of Svalbard, with a population of just over 2000. It is fully dark for 4 months during the winter, the sun never rising above the horizon. 429 more words

3D Printing a dome house

I’ve ported most of Geodome codes in Python 3.4.   I’ll release the program under GPLv3 license soon.  The program  requires Python 3.x and OpenSCAD.

Geodesic Dome/Dome

It’s an intriguing shape, the geodesic dome. Simply, interlocking straight lines are used to create polygons, those polygons in turn become a curved hemisphere shape, like half of a soccer ball or a jungle gym. 178 more words
