The Shpleem Dome

jonpalmer > Collections >

"When you go to a LEGO conventiontypically the larger models get most ofthe attention. Not good or bad, just theway it is. I wanted to make somethinglarge to take to shows that used thesmallest amount of parts, so a geodesicdome sounded right.

"I built this for Brickfest DC 06. Thegeodesic dome took about 6 months ofdesign and prototyping in my spare time.I wouldn???t have been able to build itwithout the awesome dome calculator It was a surrealproject because I learned (a little bit)about how real geodesic domes are madeand then got to figure out how to makeit with LEGO."
