Step 1: First I Made a Model to See If All Dimensions Are Correct..
Step 2: Time to Start Creating
since a geodesic dome exist out of 5 angles and 6 angels i started with making those..
i made corner holders out of metal tubing and the grey stuf in between is laminated scrapwood left over from work
time to put the little dome together and weld the metal pieces to each other ..
Step 3: Testing Out the Dimensions
now i can make the dome every size i want
i just have to change the lenght of the beams
110cm is the ideal length for me..
just testing out with some tarps to get the overal feeling
Step 4: Final Build Up With the Point Roof on Top
it takes about 30 minutes to put the dome together alone..
Step 5: Another Try Out to Make the Entry
this entry is also made in miniature to test the dimensions
Step 6: Made Some Reinforcements in the Six Angles
Step 7: Finaly the Real Deal, Starting in Januari 2017 in the Corner of My Friends Yard
