Menu: Solids / Hemisphere


Toolbox Icon:

Draws a solid hemisphere.

Point 1: Center of the flat face

Point 2: Radius of the flat face

Point 3: Direction of the dome

Specify the number of sides or facets around both the longitude and latitude of the sphere. The more facets the sphere has, the more spherical it appears.


Choose whether the second point represents a point at a vertex of the rim, or a midpoint of one of the flats on the rim.

When you draw the hemisphere, you may find it helpful to think of the object as a covered bowl. Point 1 is set for the center of the cover. Point 2 is somewhere on the rim. Point 3 defines the direction of the bottom of the bowl from Point 1.
