6V Geodesic Dome Build Time Lapse Video

by Jon Dietz April 07, 2017

 Check out a cool time lapse video of us building a 25' Diameter 6V dome.

 

It’s easy – if you use time lapse photography! This video actually condenses over 5 hours of dome construction into less than 2 minutes by taking one frame every 15 seconds or so. Watch us build a 25’ diameter frequency 6 dome starting from zero and finishing with a complete structure. There’s a method to the madness, and it helped that we had 5 copies of the color coded dome map handy for everyone to keep track of the 9 different color coded lengths of PVC (550 in all!) and the 196 Geodesic Dome Connectors that connected them together. Unless you’re a professional dome builder, there’s a lot of mistakes you can make!
