Hi,

This is a utility for creating geodesic spheres and domes. It aims to be both
easy to use, and extensible: the end-user designs their own triangle object.

It also includes a special gradient function that makes certain operations
easier.

Happy Raytracing!

Sam

Could I ask for a macro that creats position points on sphere in an array? Or it
has existed?
I would like to make a light dome and light bulbs which have raytrace picture
elegant like some other people do in this newsgroup.

thanks.

Somebody might have already posted some code for that. If not, ask your question
in the general section :)

No Problem, Thomas. It was on my to-do list anyway; I just finally got around to
doing it :)

Try

http://news.povray.org/povray.binaries.images/thread/%3C461ba1e1%40news.povray.org%3E/?mtop=241021

and

http://news.povray.org/povray.binaries.scene-files/thread/%3C461efe8a%241%40news.povray.org%3E/

These are from 2007 so the code probably needs to be adapted for 3.7.

To clarify, the links are not about evenly spaced points
on a sphere, but about creating points for a light dome.

It seems useful and have many information.
Previously, I found that Samuel Benge's macro seems easy to use, so I asked for
this directly.
Thank you.
