I've been trying to see a way to do this. It just seemed like it should. Here I used a revolve tent object, then placed 4 at different pole angles, and booleaned to a larger curved surface. Then I could fillet between them to finish the "cloth". If it is close at all, we can look at best practices. If not, just another failed attempt.. :o
