Hi,
i want to place various small objects on the surface of a big sphere object. im trying to make a planet with small shape objects all around its surface, is there a tool that would place the objects around the sphere like the spacing tool on a path?
thanks for your time
regards dim

Hi

In the compound objects category you find an object called scatter, This places multible instaces of a single object on the surface of an other.

Another posibility is to work with particle array or particle flow.

hope it helps
