# How To Make A Dome In Minecraft Worldedit Like This? Using Worldedit To Make The Dome

There are two ways to create a hollow sphere using WorldEdit, the //hsphere command and the //generate command using a formula.

What if you want a hemisphere? Well, you can with the following instructions. This is for a hemisphere of radius 15 and height 15.

From ground level, pillar up 16 blocks and mark the top block as your origin.

WorldEdit command //outset 15

WorldEdit command //g -c -h minecraft:glass y=abs(y+15);x^2+y^2+z^2

The secret sauce is the y=abs(y+15). If you change 'y' to 'x' or 'z', you'll lop off a different half of the sphere on a different axis.

For a hemisphere of radius/height N, you need to set origin height to be N+1 if you want the base of the dome to touch the ground and not cut into the ground.

Very interesting! I've always been trying to figure out a way to make a glass dome of sorts, and this is perfect ๐

Out of curiosity, is it possible to generate a shape of a frustum of a cone (as in, cone with a cone cut off from its top) using WE too? If so, what would be the commands for the same?

The first issue is drawing a cone shape. A quick Google search turned up this:

The poster included the formula they used to generate a cone. Once you have Worldedit successfully drawing you cones where you want, I'd use delete commands to lop off the top section of the cone.

Quick question I've been getting stuck on. I want to generate a hemisphere but my “Center point” is even not odd, so the center is not a single block but a four block square.

Trying to work out how to center my hemisphere without having to manually extend it block by block?

I think if you set your starting position as a 2x2x2 area then use the //outset, you might have some success. I must admit I'm not a WorldEdit expert, I just put together the above via trial and error and watching YouTube tutorials.
