I’ve became a designer and dome builder: simple clay doll, wooden chair, machine, real-size dome, and a lot of stuff. I would say I’m a hard-core DIYer.
Lately I felt this is the right time to have a 3D Printer and use it for practical applications I do to save time and resources. I’m gonna have an reprap 3D Printer soon. I had spent few hundred hours to learn Blender. I think I need few thousands hours to master Blender so that I use it to do 3D modeling without difficulty.
This experimental dome is made out of 210 steel pipes, diameter of 26.57 mm.
