Im trying to create a sphere made with square panels. The panels are all equal size.
Like a soccer ball but with squares. the squares dont have to be touching and the can have gaps between them to see through the ball.
Can anyone help me with an algorithm to correctly place x amount of square panels to create a sphere?
Junks from my head so far...
draw from bottom to top
botttom and top of sphere have smallest radius and increase towards center
panels change angles change angles from top/and bottom 180 deg
particle system maybe
