Hi everyone and Modz experts

 

I have been asked to check the possibility of building a club in a sphere. What they proposed me is something that loook like Epcot. Where the club would occupy the lower part of the sphere. My biggest problem is how to make an empty shell spherical.

I tried some forms but it does not accomplish what I am looking for.

Maybe someone could help point me in the right direction.

Here are some pics of the proposed project.

 

Thanks in advance for your ideas

Always learning

Hi Neithx

Here is how i would do it :)

 

Have two blocks and spread them apart the distance you want the size of the sphere to be. In this case 40m

Group them

Copy and rotate the block in even steps using the step tool

until you have a circle

Copy and rotate the circles using the step tool to form your sphere

I would then remove the center 2 or 3 rows as there are a lot of blocks their overlapping and are not needed.

These holes can be then filled with a single round Block or filled in with something :)

I have left the gaps between the block to show how the sphere is made...these can be removed by "Scaling" the blocks together once the first circle is made  (Picture 3)

Some notes

You should practice this method a few time before trying to make the sphere you want to use.

  • Consider how big you want the sphere
  • The smaller the blocks the smoother the sphere will be. BUT it will be a much larger file size.
  • When starting out make sure the first two block (picture 1) have their pivot point facing down (or up) so when you complete the circle the line up evenly

 

I hope this helps :)

 

cheers

Hey Nym, I did some tests and the 20 meters sphere is the most easily movable and scalable.  Here is a pic demonstrating. I resized it larger to get more space inside. Keep in mind this is just some test I did to view the feasability and I will tweak the sides.

Just wanted to show you. You advice helped me a lot. Everything was clear.

I know it is huge. But I dont really know the space needed right now. File size is 396kb
