I would like some help to solve the following problem: I need to create a world globe solid, but hollow inside (the countries will be stick to the sphere axis, similar to the attached photo).
I have already tried to insert a B&W image by picture frame / heightfield from image / apply mesh UVN to a sphere. The result wasn’t satisfactory because the countries were too deformed.
I thought of retry it with a vectored image / extrude / apply mesh to a sphere, but at the moment I don’t have the appropriate software’s. Is it the best way to produce this world globe?
I need to prototype this piece, so it has to be the most flawless as possible. I am using Rhino v.4 without any plug-ins but if it’s necessary I can arrange it.
Thanks for any help.
