Assembly of a geodesic dome made with bamboo and a 3D printer from colaborativa.
This is a timelapse video of the assembly of a geodesic dome made with bamboo and a RepRap 3D Printer. The prototype was assembled for the first time in Scarpia XII (http://scarpia2013.blogspot.com.es) on July, 2013. The experimental design is based on the work of Buckminster Fuller, domerama.com, effalo and Colaborativa's own designs and it is shared with a creative commons license.
3d printing is very useful for production of geodesic connectors and hubs. I think that there is still lot of space left for much more innovation and improvements (ie. connectors for square boards etc.) .
There are several deigns on Thingiverse:
Here is another interesting project that connects 3d printing approach and geodesic structures by design software and building elements production:
