To start you can print the following template:

Template : (A4, PDF file, 3 pages)

Or for your own measures go to the final step.

UPDATE: I've programmed a measurement calculator for custom sizes . Check it out.

Step 1: Cutting

First cut all the parts of the template but don't forget to add the flaps !

Then fold along each line.

Step 2: Assembly

Glue all the parts together to form your dome.

Step 3: Other Measures

I wrote a Python code to allow you to choose your own radius length.

You only have to run the program with Spyder, Idle... and then use the plan (pdf file) in the Dome_size_package to find which length goes where.

Download the size package :

I've already calculate the measures for some standard radius length. These measures are in a .txt file in the package
