Those are very nice Geodesic domes! But I couldn’t find any plugin that would allow me to define the relative size of the sphere and the hexagon. Therefore I’m limited to choose from the available drawings on the 3D Warehouse. Unfortunately none resembles what I want to do which is the mesh covering a tweeter dome like this. On this picture it is not very clear but the grid lies over a dome and not a plane surface.
The best that I could do so far, and because the dome is almost plane, was to create the grid and intercept it with a cylinder but of course this is not accurate and the more the dome is curved the worse it gets.
CLF Shape Bender is a very nice plugin but also very temperamental as it doesn’t work too well if the curve is not very pronounced on all the tests I’ve done. Moreover there is also all that fiddling with the line that has to be drawn on the red axis or something like that. Notwithstanding there is no way to bend an object over a surface but only over a line which doesn’t suit me.
With Soap Skin Bubble I simply can’t imagine how to integrate my hexagon with an already existing surface.
Any more ideas?
Thanks in advance!
