Possibly - if you really do want the dome.
I suspect you won't see too much of a difference in performance between the dome and a pyramid of the same volume.

Subject: [Equest-users] dome roof

I am creating an eQuest model of the State Capitol building in Helena, MT. I would like the 3-D model of the building to have a dome-like roof for the center section of the building to represent the actual building construction. Is the best way to do this using the polygon command and figure out a geodesic dome construction??

Thanks for any insights,
