Thread: Create sphere from diamond-like shape?

    Create sphere from diamond-like shape?

    I am trying to recreate the green house glove from Disney World's Epcot, and the shell is pretty much made of 2 triangles that meet in their own centers, forming a triangle. I have create a base shape that/is array'd, but I cannot figure out how to turn the giant array sheet (or single piece) into a sphere. I tried forming to sphere, but was not able to get bending to work properly (it would turn the object from no back into odd 3D transformation with LOADS of stretching).

    I have searched around google alot and seen other odd methods that would not work- including hair/particle (just did not look right) and dupliface (both did not look right and had almost random rotations, even when using constraints)

    What method did you use to select just the inside/poke tips? (poke is a new tool to me)

    Selected one, select similar: amount of connected edges.

    Thank you. This helps a lot and I learned 2 new tools that are probably going to be highly useful.
