Newspaper Geodesic Dome - These are instructions for the newspaper dome we built as a class. The same procedure can be followed to make a dome of different dimensions (see calculator below).
Geodesic Dome Calculator - Use this tool to determine the length and number of pieces you will need for any size dome (the 2v dome is what we did in class). I recommend a 20 cm radius dome, which is about the size of a beach ball, and works well with half-sheets of copy paper. For a dome this size, you will need 35 struts that measure 12.36 cm each and 30 struts that measure 10.93 cm each (try to measure as closely as possible).
