I’m pretty new to using Grasshopper but have been using Rhino for a little while now, so this hopefully is a pretty simple thing and I’m just not searching the forms with the correct terms. I am trying to an intersect between two shapes. I’ve tried this with a brep and as a mesh and it’s not giving me the result that I am looking for.
I have a geodesic dome that I’ve created in Grasshopper, and I want to intersect it with a box so that the dome is a 1/2 sphere instead of a full sphere. I’ve tried a few different things to ensure that I was using the intersect currently… I can do an intersect with two boxes and it works, when I bake the GH brep’s I can do a Boolean Difference within Rhino I get the effect I am looking for. I am looking to get this done in GH to continue with the workflow in GH.
Should I be trying to do this with a mesh, brep, solid? Is it to do with the geodesic dome shape and the box? Any help and direction are greatly appreciated.
I’ve attached the .gh file and some screenshots for reference.

what it still looks like after the difference.

I’ve attached the .gh file for reference and to give a better idea of what I have going on.
