Flow along sphere


I am trying to create a square cut out texture on the top of a sphere, something like the image attached. I tried flow along curve but it distorts the pattern a lot and also the flow goes around the top of the sphere rather than flow right over it. IMG_2418

Thank you. this is a cylinder though not a sphere. What I am having a problem with is the sphere.

Hi! Are you looking for something like this?

Hi! Yes this is the result im getting, but what I am looking for is for the squares on the top of the sphere to look like the image I sent, rather than to revolve around the center of the sphere. Does that make sense? So something like the image I attached here but squares instead of hexagons.

Hm, something like that on the top?

something like this but all around the sphere

I would still go with Lunchbox panels and then extract items from the list to isolate the top triangles. Then I would try to fill the space somehow with squares instead of triangles. I’ll have to think about it a bit :slight_smile: I’ll try to get back to you!

okay, thanks! :slight_smile:

Hi, @sbdeir you can use quad sphere for this exercise.

Very nice! I recreated it with a few less commands.

you just need to flatten

Amazing! I’ve never used grasshopper before though :confused:
