Recently, someone identifing themselves as Edward Halford from
Xanadome contacted me
by email, repeating their usual bizarre claims to have the
optimal clear-span structure.
So, here is my Xanadome challenge! Here is a 13cm-clear-span structure
constructed on a dinner plate - made using cling film and 7cm of

My challenge to the folks at Xanadome is to create a similar clear
span with a Xanadome - using fewer (or equal) materials of a
broadly-similar type - i.e. chopped-up pencils (or similar) for the
struts - and whatever guy material they choose, if needed.
The dinner plate should be considered to be flat
circular surface - though my photo only contains an approximation of
that. A cling-film-only solution would not be admissable!
