This is a monolithic dome shell without top that me and my wife are going to play with for prototyping house designs.

You know instead of making it hollow, you could make it solid (just cut the top of the hemisphere but leave the inside solid). Then slice it with no infill. That lets you define the number of layers on the bottom and wall thickness in the slicer.
Oh sorry, it's fine now. There was a giant solid box attached at the top (the box that cut off the top). My build of openscad exported bad STLs, built the latest from source and re-uploaded once I figured out what the problem was.

This doesn't print very well at 1.5" diameter or so - I know that much :) It works, but the floor doesn't print solid. If you print it, it'll want to be bigger....
What's different? You could post the scad file or an image of the openSCAD render.

This is most certainly not rendering correctly here either...have to figure out why it renders differently in openscad versus here...
