Make a geosphere (icosa)
Convert to editable mesh
Select all verts
Chamfer to the right size
Delete any bits you don't want like the hole, and bottom half of sphere.
Add lattice modifier
Choose "Struts only from edges".
Adjust radius, etc.

I wish my brain worked like Garps does.

Agreed. There's always a new trick to learn every time I see a Garp video. For instance, extruding edges to make a chamfer!? Never thought of that, still don't understand it.

[edit] Oh yeah, and that select border, grow, then alt+select border is... fuck, that's good.

Been using 3ds since before max. I knew 90% of the steps Garp did, but the flow of which he did them, and the result are still amazing to watch.

Yer like an editable poly poet.

"Been using 3ds since before max. I knew 90% of the steps Garp did, but the flow of which he did them, and the result are still amazing to watch. "

That's what gets me, it's not about knowing features/tools, I think most folk here are pretty well versed when it comes to what Max can do, but people like Garp are the ones who say things like "it's just a tool" and actually mean it.

When I say "Max is just a tool"... what I mean is "oh please god don't make me use anything else, I'll be shit at it for years"

Don't worry, you will be forced on to Maya in the next few years by AD, and have to learn it all again.

Hopefully I'll be sat in a cushy management role by then, telling other artists to "stop whining, it's just a tool"

They won't force Maya on to me. I'd rather go Blender
