Generating the Eden Project using Solid Edge, Sketchup and Rhino Grasshopper

The Eden Project is composed of a number of geodesic domes. These domes are made out of hundreds of hexagons.

I first used Solid Edge to draw the outlines of the volumes. Then I imported the data into Sketchup to take advantage of the Soap Skin and Bubble plugin to create the bubble form. Finally, I imported the model into Rhino Grasshopper and used a script to generate the hexagonal structure.
