Laser Cut a Dymaxion Globe for an Accurate View of the World | Make:
I was playing around with map projections one day and became a tad smitten with Buckminster Fuller’s “Dymaxion” Projection. It’s able to unwrap a spherical map of the Earth onto a flat plane with surprisingly little distortion. The flat Dymaxion map can then be divided up into triangles and folded back into a three-dimensional figure. I started this project because I wanted to make my own 3D version of Fuller’s globe.
