How can I model this, . I've only started to try, but im a newbie and feel like I'mma fail at making it look like a dome with the curvature. Any advice or comment would be much appreciated! :) Dome with cylinders

The "progress" "Progress"

You can do this easily with face instancing.

  1. Parent the Cylinder to the Dome
  2. Select the Dome and go Object Tab > Instancing > Faces
  3. Done

Here is an alternative with geometry nodes. Create your dome, create your cylinder. Give your dome a Geometry Node modifier with this setup: Group Input > (Point) Align Rotation to Vector (with Vector > Attribute, and Vector > Position) > (Point) > Point Instance (with the cylinder as Object) > Output.
