Mesh generator to triangulate a sphere surface
Hi there,
Does anybody have a standalone mesh generator to triangulate a sphere surface? Thanks for your help. Tony 
Re: Mesh generator to triangulate a sphere surface
(1). If you divide a sphere into eight equal part, then each will have three vertices. (2). From there, you can make horizontal cut and further divide each band into smaller triangles.

Thanks John,
Is it possible to make all the elements equilateral and look like the same from all directions? Tony

Yes! Check for the keyword "icosahedron" on the net or the literature Adrin Gharakhani

Hi Adrin,
Thanks a lot. It really helps. For those who are also interested in icosahedron, pls visit http://polyhedra.wolfram.com/platonic/Icosahedron.html for details. Tony
