Lattice work pod
show user profile  laptop
I'm looking for some pointers for the following:

I'd like to superimpose a lattice similar to the image attached on to the pod shape also attached - so something that start dense - almost solid up to the height of the seating shown, and then opens out as it reaches the roof of the pod.

I'd prefer to do it with materials rather than modelling - but I'm open to all ideas.

Here's a low res WIP. For the pod shell, I've used a nurbs surfaces, one inside the other. The inner surface has an opacity map attached to it which is identical to the diffuse map. I think it works quite well, but there's room for improvement.
