Yes indeed. I'll dig out the links for you. (it was a while ago now before the project began but I am sure I have them written down and will forward them onto you). It was all on how to draw polyhedra. There was even a youtube tutorial too that I sat though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UE0b3qcusgMBut yes the method I used for circular based and eliptical based is the same. I always started with platonic solid. With Elipses, that initial solid needs to be scaled from the centre point, to suit your desired dimensions. (this keeps the proportions so that one side isn't favoured or squashed. You definitly want a 3D symetry to give the structure it's strength.This will give you the position of the primary corners. From there it's a case of pull your arcs on cad and divide them up proport...

From there it's a case of pull your arcs on cad and divide them up proportionately. I only ever drew a quarter of the dome and then copied and rotated in cad. It makes it a bit easier.
