Default Spherize plugin

This AC3D plugin takes the selected vertices and moves them so that they form a sphere. It's great for creating a quad-spheres - a good basis for subdivision modeling. It's also handy for making round surfaces/holes or distorting geometry.

Spherize is for AC3D 7.5 and can be downloaded here:

Windows

Mac

After downloading and unzipping the file, place the spherize.p file in your AC3D/plugins folder and start AC3D The plugin adds a "Spherize vertices" item to the AC3D tool menu. To use it, simply select some vertices or surfaces then select the menu item to "spherize" them.

Andy,

Is there a reason you haven't posted a linux version of this? I got my tool chain put back together, so if I had the source I could probably make it compile...

I wrote my own, but you're doing something with the center that I'm missing... Oh, I see now. Your plug-in uses the bounding box center and I'm computing the geometric center.

There are some problems with the OpenGL windows on the Linux version of AC3D 8. Hopefully it'll be ready in the New Year.

Happy Xmas!
