Welcome to Geo-dome:
WangerFlanges are coming to the geo-dome shop
Thanks to everyone who supported the WangerFlange on kickstarter. I'm now selling them from here:
Invented by R.Buckminster fuller in the late 1940s geodesic domes are one of the most efficient structures known to man, often thought of as complex or expensive to build, here at Geo-dome we can show you just how simple, cost effective and efficient geodesic dome structures can be.
If you're looking for inspiration, try browsing the design and plans section of the site.
You'll find design drawings and basic plans for greenhouses, sheds, trapezium panel domes, segmented style domes and more...
New for 2016, sketchup video tutorials showing you how to draw geodesic and other domes from scratch, it's actually not that difficult.
I'm no longer building the kits, well at least for this year. Demand was so high that I couldn't keep up without having some sort of nervous breakdown. So for this year (2016) I'm going to concentrate on new designs, plans and also updating the website. I have a bunch of new things planned for the site and will be doing some geometric based building designs other than domes, the video below shows a new pyramid design I have just finished.
Some of the technical terms used in geodesic geometry can be difficult to grasp, especially if you are a newby, well don't worry because the new wiki knowledge base will explain in simple terms many of the principals and technical terminology used in geodesics, for example: every wondered what a Deltiodal Hexecontahedron is, or a Johnson Solid. the database contains simple explanations for beginners like Geodesic dome frequency, with links to further resources or more complex geometric concepts like Zonohedron.
