5V Geodesic dome


A 5V geodesic dome is proposed due to its shorter struts and safer climbability.

There are 9 different lengths of struts ranging from 624 to 824 mm.

I am creating a 5/8 sphere.

For the 1:20 scale model I am using matchsticks for the struts (31.2 to 41.2 mm),

colour-coded for the various sizes.  I’m curious to see how the rainbow will emerge.

Watch along on Instagram to see the dome develop,

or wait for the video animation.
