Dome analysis is performed with the Analysis + Design (F9) command. If the dome support conditions are defined for the solution together with the structure, the dome is solved interactively with the structure.

If the dome support conditions are defined as a separate solution with the building, the dome solution is made with Dome + Vault Analysis.
