orb of life / procedural modeling question

Recommended Posts

hi!

 

would anyone know where to start with modeling something like this?

 

https://www.shapeways.com/product/JUND48994/3d-400mm-orb-of-life-3d-flower-of-life?optionId=40619997&li=marketplace

 

seems like a copySOP to create a new circle curve at every intersecting point, but how to get the curve to adhere to the surface of the underlying sphere?
 

thanks in advance!

well if the underlying surface is just a sphere...then that 'conform' step is actually the easiest step to do...

Here....now the hard part is to workout the underlying template points pattern to get you the desired pattern.

(note: if you observe the model in the link...it's not 'uniform' throughout.....rotate it in 3D and you'll see it's actually symmetrical, ie. 2 hemispheres)
