Myself and Varwnos have made a lot of buildings lately with this program and many people have asked me how we draw domes accurately. Domes are one of the trickier shapes in an otherwise fairly easy program to use but they can be mastered with very little practice.
The diagram is a step-by-step walkthrough of the creation of a simple dome.

Good idea Traianus :)

Perhaps there should also be a GS model sharing thread :)

Go to display settings and change edges and profiles, take off endpoints and extensions.
Really glad you managed it!
