I am trying recreate a sphere wrapped in paracord in Sketchup, but having a very difficult time. I have tried to project the sphere using this photo, but it still looks to “spherical” and doesn’t have the “uneven” texture of the rope.
I have searched far and wide and can’t find a How-to video & models and the closest thing I can find is a geodesic design, but they don’t look quite right. I have even tried to recreate the individual “squares” and just stack them around the sphere, but didn’t work. (the pattern of the rope is not really perfectly geometrical)
Also, I tried to manually draw the pattern around the sphere, but was becoming way too tedious and wasn’t working for me.
Can anyone help?
