Please try to respond to the following questions: How did you come up with the measurements? How long did it take you to get the measurements? How long did it take you to build the dome? Thanks for posting this instructable! It's been fun building it so far!

The measurements are derived from math calculations from a 3 frequency geodesic structure, there are dome calculators on desert domes web site, desert domes.com , the measurements can be calculated in les than 1 minute. It took me about 1 month of trial and error to figure out the fine details and photograph the entire process for the instructables web site so everyone could follow along. You could expect to make an unpainted dome in one weekend if you have all the cardboard ready to cut up in front of you.
Greg, Off hand, do you know angle of the cuts if you want the inside bevels (i.e. for the 'A' sides to match flush)? I'm wanting to scale this up and adapt the design for a greenhouse project. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Kyle
