Basic Solids – Quad Sphere/UV Sphere Hybrid

Recently I had the need for a sphere that had the same topology on all six “sides.” That is, in both ways along three mutually orthogonal axes. Inspired by a BB-8 design I saw on Blender Artists, I threw together a quick video tutorial.

When I was first starting out with Blender, tutorials like this helped me along enormously. I tried to be specific enough that someone with extremely limited knowledge of Blender could follow along, but not so bogged down as to be annoying to an enthusiast looking for a neat trick or two. Hopefully this will mark the beginning of a series.

I’ve got one more tutorial planned for the near future. I am open to suggestions. Feedback on my nascent editing abilities is greatly welcomed.
