Blobs (at least POV-Ray's polynomial blobs) are not that good in creating
such joints.  Note that apart from the highly mechanically optimized
transit nature creates for joints between branches there is also usually a
strong change of surface structure and coloring in such areas.  The
program Norbert mentioned does not seem to take care of this either.
