It would need two domes to make a sphere, for the golf ball I'm sure it would be
possible, but certainly too regular, for the others I doubt it  (I don't know
what is the cervesa bug, I search the internet but didn't find anything that
looks like a sphere.

The main idea in this program is to define the equation of the equator, and the
equation of the Greenwich meridian, and the apply some modifications (so for the
basketball I think it's possible, but for the buckyball certainly not.

I didn't expect to get the sea urchin, so the image I posted is just my test
rendering, that I made to check a new feature.

Best regards
