    Massing and Curtain System will get you there. Check out the documentation for them. Can do a lot of things with massing as the basis for other things.

            Search for what Steve suggested. Not Massing and Surface Divide. Massing and Curtain System...

              You can use Divide by Intersects and draw lines that converge at a single point. Turn off U/V Grid and choose Intersects, select the lines and it will "project" them onto your Mass face and create a divided surface from the lines.

              However, for a simple dome, just use a Curtain System by Face as suggested.

                Divide Surface and Intersects isnt going to give him Mullions and Panels, its going to only let him place Panels, which will then have to have the hacked-up-hal-mullion profiles running around the edge. And since the panel will be normal to its surface tangential of the Domes radius, there will be gaps in the middle.

                They also wont be System Mullions (swappable sizes), and he will have to resort to keeping different panels as a band aid.

                Curtain System For the win.

                    1) New family > generic model > from a front view > Create > Solid > Revolve > draw the section > select an axis > Finish > Load into project > Roof by face > select faces > Finish roof.

                    2) For glazed domes: New conceptual mass > Draw the section (open) and draw a line for the axis. Select the section and the axis line > Create form. Load into project > Curtain system > select faces > Create system. This method lets you have more control of the shape, even though you could also insert a primitive dome family. (By Alfredo_Medina)
                    OOOPS here we go this really make me understand simple image explain 100 words , you will not believe alfredo post was the key for solving my question
