The Monolithic Dome Institute Spherical Dome Calculator helps calculate common design elements of a partial sphere set on an optional stem wall. It helps with quick design ideas and provides accurate measurements when finalizing structural elements. Outputs include circumference, surface area, volume, and distances along and around the building’s various details. A level input measures a slice of the structure. For example, it can calculate the area of a second floor, show headroom around the dome perimeter, or calculate the volume and surface area of a portion of the dome.
