Really Quick Question - How to make a object flush with the surface of a sphere?
show user profile  peterjung
Hi everyone

Can anyone offer a quick tip of how I can make the nozzles in the picture below become "ground" flush with the surface of the spherical end?

I thought I could do it by boolean subtraction by basically creating a kind of sock around the whole assembly but this does not work....

Here is the "sock" idea that is not working....

Any help offered is much appreciated!

OK... I get why the sock is not working...

I need to use the shell modifier to give the sphere some "thickness"....

Now it's working :)

However it has given me another problem as the inside of the nozzles are not solid.... hmmm

Good script for Geo projection:

images are 404 for some reason but the script is easy enough to use.

If your using Boolean, clean your verts afterwards.
