Ellipsoid dome

Hi. I have searched in the forum and watched some video tutorials about domes and ellipses, but i could not find an example or a solution for this kind of dome:

Can anyone help me with an example or some information?

The mesh can be rectangular or triangular, it doesn’t matter for now. After i manage to create the dome, i should try to create triangular and rectangular meshes.

Thank you.

How about this for a start?

And if you want to get really really sick, you can use geodesics too…

Hi David,
Thank you, those are perfect.

Now i am trying to convert this model to Karamba 3D and i need to find all the intersections of the curves.
I have tried Explode, Curve intersection and many other commands but without any success to find the intersections.
Do you have any idea?
Thank you!

If you are doing it with ETFE, order it with me :smiley:
