Long time user first time contributor so appreciate everyone’s thoughts on my question, I’m trying to create a shape that is basically kind of like an old style jelly mould, but simpler.
Jelly that comes out of a mould usually has a base shape of a circle surrounded by semicircles or bulges, that go up to the top of the jelly then back down like an apple core kind of sinks back down.
I guess you could call the shape I wanted to create a beaded sphere? In my case I want the base shape to go round a sphere and meet at the top and botttom points.
Think of an orange with the peel off, that’s similar, in that if you cut it in half through the segments, you have a circle with bulges around it.
Simple in principle, but I have no idea how to do it.
So far I have drawn a 2D circle with the desired bulges at the ‘equator’ of the sphere, but I have no idea how to take the shape up and down to the ‘poles’ of the sphere. I can’t use follow me, don’t think I can use sand box, so I’m pretty stuck.
Any help appreciated!
