Am rather new to max and would like to find out from all here on how to create a facade sceen (beehive pattern) like the one shown on this pic. Is it done on max or rhino ?

Thanks all in advance,

Well how do we know what it was made in? Could be either.

How far will it be viewed from? You want it modeled or fake it?
First idea that comes to mind is modeling one row (or smallest piece that can be tiled), then tile it, then add twist/bend/ffd modifiers to get it into shape you need.

heres a way to make the honeycomb structure (video made ages ago, getting a second airing), then do as horizon siad, or you may get away with just using soft selection to rotate/move the structure about if you dont go over the top

Thanks guys ! Your respective posts were very helpful.

I have another question, that is how do I place or arrange the honeycombs such that they appear to be in a continuous warp surface like the one shown on the pic ?

Is there any way that I can just create the warp surface first, and then somehow convert these surfaces to the honeycomb objects ?

As we said you could use a variety of methods like FFD modifiers, soft selection, twist modifiers, bend modifiers, path deform WSM modifier or maybe even a patch deform WSM modifier that could well be a good plan
