For the average person it means you can create a shelter structure easily and at little cost. You won’t need to use a geodesic calculator or figure out strut bend angles or even worry about making a cover. It’s also a great project for people of all ages, introducing some science notions that are easy to understand.
If you are wondering what spacing to use between shapes, don’t: any section of the surface of the dome has the same curvature, whether on top, on the sides or at the base. That means the spacing of any Randome shape is not critical. The RanDome is put together intuitively, therefore you roughly calculate the placement of each shape or vertex element. RanDome is a play on the word “random” for that reason.
