I made a Surface-model of the eight part by EDGESURF-command and then I performed it into 3DSOLID using F2S.lsp by Bill Gilliss (see attachement).

Confusion reigns supreme ..

How do you get a 3d dome from a plywood sheet ?



I think they're making the framing from plywood, and then putting a skin on it.

OK First I started with this.



Which got me to this.



Then I took the ribs out and did the string and pencil trick in the horizontal. (X)




And then in the vertical. (Y)



Somebody please tell me I didn't screw this up.
