Dome Models

Paper dome models you can make to demonstrate the unique characteristics of geodesic domes

Some notes about the dome models. There are two types of paper dome models linked here. The first type is made with triangle bands. These take more time and care to do right, but results are very nice. Requires gluing and some patience. I’ve put Escher patterns on the two of this type, the Octa-Dome and Tetra-Dome. Second type of dome model is the surface plane or faceted model.

Model plans for the other domes are all the second type.
