I’m very new to Grasshopper so it’s a bit of a struggle to find the bits I need to work quickly with some (seemingly) simple problems.
I want to be able to create a sphere of a given radius and populate the surface with a set number of points that are evenly distributed. In the the past I’d do this manually by using some kind of work around, probably creating some form of polyhedron with the set number of faces I’d then painstakingly find the centre of each face etc.
I’m playing around with @DanielPiker’s Grasshopper discussion from 2014 but I can’t seem to get an evenly spaced group? Ideally I’d like the surface accurately divided as if by way of intersecting hexagons so all of the points are perfectly distributed.
At the moment It seems that the pts/spheres move around fighting for space in or around the surface of the main sphere but it’s there or there abouts rather than perfectly distributed.
Any idea how I can go about this? Basically I want to be able to create a set number of rods/cylinders perpendicular to the face of the main sphere similar to a dandelion seed head.
