# One Small Dome
Agnes Camera, Sara Falcone and I made this tiny dome for 99 Fridays in February 2018.
## Drawing the Dome
OK, using this Rhino Polyhedra Plugin I found ages ago and Grasshopper, I make a tiny sketch to count the edges and look at sizes.

We ended up opting for a much simpler design. This way we only have to make one type of joint, and cut one length of member.

Then I sketched a little sheet metal joint:

And unrolled and refined the pattern, adding some notches for folding reference.

## Fab
We cut these on the Fab Light:

And folded them on the hand brake:

We welded the tabs together:

## Assembly
Putting it together took ~45 minutes

## Together
This was fun! We left some yarn about to weave into the panels. Participatory architecture!
