Hi Nikos,

Live Interior lets you add a very simplified version of a dome roof. How to do this is explained here:

For more detailed model, you need to import a dome as a 3D object and install it instead of the roof. Try to search for it in Trimble Warehouse object library. Note that if you wish to have the dome with both states of shatters (open and closed), you should find two dome models showing each of these states.

Hi

How do you need to transform the model? It its size or aspect ratio should be changed, use the Object Properties tab of the Inspector.
