Attach objects onto the curved shape

Can anyone assist me please with following basic thing:
On the surface of the curved (sphere-like) shape I need to add some medallions (Imagine a ball with pound coins glued onto it). These medallion objects therefore shound be tangent to the surface of the sphere when attached. How can I achieve this ?

Thank you

You can use a ‘glue to’ component to stick to the various facets of a curved surface. But if the ‘coin’ is larger than the individual faces you’ll get some gaps.
You could also embed the coins and intersect them with the sphere so that actually take on the shape of the sphere.
Here’s a basic Glue To component. With hidden geometry turned on you can see the faces.


Great tip Box!!!
