Onion Dome Creator
A script to create onion domes.
Onion Dome Creator

This drawing tool allows you to enter specific values to create a complex, onion dome shape. Once thought to be impossible to create in SketchUp, this script makes it as simple as 3 clicks.

Great Tool, but how can I increase the quality of the shape ??? It is not really round !

Nothing in SU is round. They are all just polyhedrons/gons of varying simplicity.

Thank you very much!!

i dont find the tool after installing

I made my dome without this extension, used the standart application tools, such as drawing lines, bezier and follow tools, I guess you get the idea

What are the r1, r2, h1, and h2 values for?

Patrick J.'s picture

r1 = radius 1
r2 = radius 2
h1 = height 1
h2 = height 2
there are 2 radii involved, and a corresponding height to each of them.

I just make my own rhombic zonohedra. I think this is cool, but way more complicated than it has to be.

Learning and thanks.
