Hello!
I'm trying to copy some geometry onto a half dome so that they're pointing outwards from the center.
I'm using @N = @P to calculate the normals but they look a little messed up for some points.
Does anyone have any insight on how to fix the normals?

maybe you should define also the correct upvector for each points?

Defining the up vector did the job. Thank you!
