Dome construction


Recommended Posts

You'll not find much in the Chief library.  There is perhaps something appropriate in the Sketchup library.

The way that I create domes is using roof planes.  If you create a round structure using walls, you can generate a roof with triangular segments, and curve them to create interesting dome shapes.

Domes can also be created using molding polyline drawn in circular segments.  These molding polylines can be converted to symbols.

Below is an interesting take on using roof planes and ridge caps to create a geodesic dome.
