## Geodesic dome

A geodesic dome is a hemispherical thin-shell structure (lattice-shell) based on a geodesic polyhedron.

## Blender (software)

Free and open-source 3D computer graphics software toolset used for creating animated films, visual effects, art, 3D-printed models, motion graphics, interactive 3D applications, virtual reality, and, formerly, video games.

Blender has support for a variety of geometric primitives, including polygon meshes, Bézier curves, NURBS surfaces, metaballs, icospheres, text, and an n-gon modeling system called B-mesh.

## Goldberg polyhedron

Convex polyhedron made from hexagons and pentagons.

A Goldberg polyhedron is a dual polyhedron of a geodesic sphere.

## Geodesic grid

A geodesic grid is a spatial grid based on a geodesic polyhedron or Goldberg polyhedron.

## Conway polyhedron notation

Used to describe polyhedra based on a seed polyhedron modified by various prefix operations.

Operators in the triangular family can be used to produce the Goldberg polyhedra and geodesic polyhedra: see List of geodesic polyhedra and Goldberg polyhedra for formulas.

## Goldberg–Coxeter construction

Graph operation defined on regular polyhedral graphs with degree 3 or 4.

The GC construction can be thought of as subdividing the faces of a polyhedron with a lattice of triangular, square, or hexagonal polygons, possibly skewed with regards to the original face: it is an extension of concepts introduced by the Goldberg polyhedra and geodesic polyhedra.

## Hexapentakis truncated icosahedron

Convex polyhedron constructed as an augmented truncated icosahedron.

It is geodesic polyhedron {3,5+}3,0, with pentavalent vertices separated by an edge-direct distance of 3 steps.

## List of geodesic polyhedra and Goldberg polyhedra

This is a list of selected geodesic polyhedra and Goldberg polyhedra, two infinite classes of polyhedra.

## Fermilab

United States Department of Energy national laboratory specializing in high-energy particle physics.

One can also find structural examples of the DNA double-helix spiral and a nod to the geodesic sphere.

## Humanity Star

Reflective passive satellite designed to produce visible, pulsing flares.

The satellite was shaped like a geodesic sphere about 3 ft in diameter, with its 76 reflective panels on the shape make it looks similar to a large disco ball.
