How to achieve a hexagonal dome.


Recommended Posts

I am currently trying to make a sort of dome made up of hexagonal segments.

The only way I can currently think of is with some modifiers, but I know that is not nearly the same, nor a correct result/technique.

I am not trying to achieve a full sphere, just a hemisphere.

Can you upload your scene so we can see where you are stuck? 🙂

Shoot. I was hoping no one would ask for the scene haha. I closed it out without saving since I hadn't really done much worth saving. I'll redo it real quick. What I did: used a cloner on a hexagon in a honeycomb array, then I used the Shrink Wrap modifier over a sphere.

 

I am hoping someone can tell me a better, more proper method to create such a model, as this technique is just messy and unpleasant.

 

Edit:

Attached the scene.

Ah ha! So that's the trick, I needed to subdivide that sphere.

 

Those videos were perfect.

Thank you!
