You will need to print 8 copies of the plans below to have enough panels for your dome model. To save the plans on your computer right click then select save as, print the plans (8 times) on A4 sheets of paper.
You need 45 panel A peaces and 30 panel B peaces for a 3v geodesic dome. For information on how to build your geodesic paper model see the Instructions page.

These are great instructions! This set of plans helped us to build the Pantheon. What we thought was an overwhelming project was simplified. Thank you!
This was a lot of help. I'm using it for a science project. We have to build an earthquake resistant building. I hope it works. Seems like it will. Thanks soooo much!
great....you safe my life ....now i have project to make dome thank you
We have been building cardboard and transparent plastic domes with our students for a number of years. Go to Domebook.com click on Domes to download patterns to make two kinds of paper domes.
this helped me a big deal in modeling one of my already designed dome gere in zaria nigeria i would recommend it for any one that needs to do something similar.
Appreciate your plan to build a Paper Geodesic Dome. But What size or Diameter Dome will be Built by doing this process. This will be necessary to try building this Dome, isnt it?
I was wondering if I could get some dimensions, I need to build this, but approx. 4 times bigger. Thanks!
For detailed directions, take a look at domebook.com. The directions in the inexpensive book allow you to build any of 9 domes (a tenth is available on the Builder's Blog) from cardboard and in any size you want.
This 3v paper model is great! Are there any paper models for the 1v, 2v, 4v or 5vs? My son needs for a science fair project... Thanks!
ARE YOU USING ACTUAL PENTAGONS AND
HEXAGONS TO BUILD YOUR PANELS?
This really helped. I am building a meuseum model for my A&T class using 6 polyhedrons and a geodesic dome. All I needed was the dome, but all i found were too complicated for my time restraints. THANK YOU and 6,000,000 thumbs up
