Creating a soccer ball
by Paul Campbell on Jan 9, 2010 at 10:02:23 pm
Greetings. While I continue to experiment with polygon sizes, I'd like to take a minute and just ask what the trick is to make all of the polygons line up on the ball after I apply my sphere effect. I can make the ball easy enough, but it's really obvious once it starts rotating where the seam is. Thanks.

Well, this certainly explains why my pattern was distorting in the middle of the ball! How in the world did you come up with this??
I don't suppose you also have the patterns for a baseball, basketball, etc? I just posted a thread about making a baseball that I can spin in 3D. I guess the secret is to just have the flat pattern handy. Thanks so much for the picture.
