How to make a dome?

Hola ST community!

I would like to make a dome from a circular sketch/face. Is there any way to do it. Like in solidworks we can define the height of the dome and it will make a dome from that height tangent to the base of the circle.

You can revolve a profile to create a dome shape, but AFAIK there isn't a separate command specifically for creating domes.

Yeah, I also was thinking it that way, but it´s still two steps further then just using a dome command. Thanks anyway.

In sheet metal, you could add a dimple.

Hi,

 

I suggest using BlueSurf command or Bounded surface to making Dome.
