It all depends on what you got and what you want.

There should be plenty of code out there that can place make a sphere out of
triangles. I use GEODESIC SHAPE GENERATOR FOR PERSISTENCE OF VISION 3.1x by by
Uwe Zimmermann, Stockholm, Sweden 1999. I Here's a copy if you need it.
 One thing the triangles that fit a sphere wont' be all the same size and shape.

Have Fun!
