Airex Balance Products. Rustic metals. Folding Geodesic Dome. A “3V” geodesic or polyhedral dome is made of hexagons and pentagons, which means you will need 2 basic triangle shapes, called BAA and BCC.
Start your project with a visit to desertdomes.com, where you will find dome diagrams, dome formulas and an invaluable dome calculator. This Instructable is for a dome with a 7’ radius; this is a “5/8” 3V dome meaning taller vs flatter, over 8’ tall in the middle. The dome likes a flat surface to sit on making it ideal for the open desert playa, not so suitable for uneven terrain. The dome base isn't exactly flat, but close; the flexible nature of the coroplast bows and yields a little when you deploy it to make up for any uneven contact (Note: the prototype pictured here has a radius of 7.2’ but wasted more material from a 4x8 sheet.
My next dome and this Instructable use the dimensions for an 84” radius - 7') Expect More. Pay Less.
