How to create a dome structure

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the forum.

 

The Chief Architect's Home Designer line of software does not lend itself to this particular design, or at least not without heavy importation of models and surfaces from a 3rd party software like SketchUp or other similar software - or possibly with extremely tedious attention to detail in placing custom planes along the curved surfaces.  The Home Designer line of software is designed for the average consumer to quickly and easily create traditional dimensional lumber framing designs, and to visualize those designs in 3D.  You may need a more robust, professional grade Architectural and/or CAD software to achieve the design proposed.

 

Good luck.  :)

I second Elovia's assessment.  You can do it, but it would require importing a lot of symbols from third party applications and there are probably better tools for creating this type of design.
