Rhino tennis ball

Hey guys,

long time no see. I’m a Rhino oldie and came for an old tool that created a tennis sphere, divided equally to 2 tennis ball parts.

It existed in earlier versions on Rhino, but not on V4 or 5.

If anyone has an old version, or a plugin-script-tool that makes that, please share with no regrets… :slight_smile:

Cheers and thanks in advance!

Thanks Dale, you saved my day!

Is there any reason you removed this wonderfull tool? :slight_smile:

Hi Dimitris - what do you use this style of sphere for?



Hi Pascal,

there is a request for a large scale tennis ball model, and wanted a good base to start with.

Ah, OK! special purpose then! I’m not sure the seams are quite the same as on a real tennis ball, you might want to verify.

Yep, it has to be more like an “eight shape” than a “rounded rectangle”.

Thanks to both for the quick response!
