A system for the automatic generation and display of framed domes is presented. The designer can interactively modify the structural topology, as well as specify member properties, support conditions and loadings, while simultaneously viewing the dome structure from any view-point in 3-dimensional space. Analysis capabilities provide rapid feedback of the structural implications of the design.
