Building the second dome

I decided to build another dome that shields the dome from water.

The dome model’s radius is around 50 cm.

I got to use 3D Printer and OpenSCAD this time. I consider 3D Printer as a powerful engineering tool that saves a lot of time and resources during the early design stage.

I’m working on geodesic dome generator using OpenSCAD so that I’ll produce plastic parts to build a scaled-down dome model before I will start build the real one.
