Need Assistance: objects (sheets of paper) covering a sphere ...

I'm trying create a sphere covered in small sheets of paper. This reference image says it all. 13569_papercoveredsphere.jpg.zip

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

One way would be to clone the papers on to a sphere. Set the Cloner to "Object" mode with a Distribution of "Surface," and set the pitch transform of the Cloner to 90 degrees so that the papers are parallel to the surface. Add a Random effector to the cloner with only the rotation parameter selected and adjust the Heading setting to taste. Add a Push Apart effector (Push Apart mode) to get separation between the papers. You will need to adjust the Radius and Iterations as necessary to prevent the papers from intersecting.

This tutorial should help: https://www.cineversity.com/vidplaytut/eliminate_overlapping_clones_with_th...



Edit: My paper is a plane in the +Y orientation. If yours is different you may need to use different settings (instead of pitch and heading).
