You must use the "Conceptual Mass" to create that, to create that mass is just a Revolve in that angle then maybe you need to use a couple of Voids, then use the divide the surface, create a new curtain panel pattern like that and that's it...

Simple.

BTW, check this link from Zach Kron : http://buildz.blogspot.com/

Here you can learn how to use the Conceptual mass, Create the panels and so on.... there are several videos about that....

Cheers

Tempting, had I the time.  This seems like a lot to ask of someone from this site, though it would be a fun exercise... but it will also make a great learning experience for you.  Problem solving, thinking of how to using the massing tools to create something so complex... However, you'll see that these mullions in the glass aren't as complex as they seem.  You only need to create one.  And then you can perform a radial array.  And then mirror the radial array.  From the pictures, I can't quite tell if the mullions are on a single plane or not.  But it appears they are, and they might not wrap the egg as much as it appears.  Perhaps exactly 180 degrees.  in which case, I would just slice an extrusion with an egg-shaped void and use the line of that cut as the path for a sweep! (and then do the mirroring/arraying of the sweep)  And then make another glass egg for the curtain panels.     This would be a quick facsimile, for appearances only.  I'll admit I know little about Conceptual Masses, but in-place modeling is handy too.

"I'll admit I know little about Conceptual Masses, but in-place modeling is handy too. " - IN-PLACE for that? Radial array then Mirror that radial ??? Good Luck... Again: check that Zach Kron blog, he's a GURU in modelling, watch his videos about Comceptual mass, adaptive components and so on...

Sure, it'd work!  My firm has very little demand for complex geometries, so it's far down on my list to master.  But I'm confident I could model this with the in-place tools in an hour or two.

 

Just saying it's much less complex than it appears...

Looks good!  I gave in to temptation, and tried modeling it a bit.  I gave myself 20 minutes at lunch... I got it wrong, but the principle is sound. the rules for placement of the mullions is still a bit of a mindbender.

I think its made like this:

Line begins and ends on the same place (at start and end) and on its way it will make full spin over the mass ...
