I think that especially the Artemia Salina thread - using the trace()

Orienting objects on the surface of the sphere can be done as indicated
there but also using the Reorient_Trans() function. Look into and use
transforms.inc

Notice for the thinkers:

if you find a simple fast way for any numbers, apply first for a patent,
there is a lot of money to make in the golf ball industry.
