How to size a dome
Step 1

Measure the Diameter - Some times you may be restricted with either the outside diameter or inside diameter

Tips for measuring diameter- Put against a wall and then on the opposite side put another flat surface i.e a box and then measure the edge to edge gap

Step 2

Measure the Height - Again this may need to be the inside diameter or outside diameter depend on the purpose of the dome

Tips for measuring height - Turn the dome over so the bulbous shape is at the bottom and sit flat against the wall and floor. 

Step 3

If the curvature of the dome is important, please discuss this with us.
