Create 5 different types of polygon spheres.  These are an alternative to Maya's default polySphere.


-triSphere - Made up of evenly distributed triangles across the mesh.  Great for low poly spheres. A.k.a Geodesic Sphere.

-quadSphere - Made up of evenly distributed quads across the mesh.  Based on a cube.

-pentaSphere - Made up of quads that form pentagon shape patches in their edge flow.  Based on an icosahedron platonic

-hexaSphere - Made up of quads that form penatgon and hexagon shape patches. Based on a soccer ball type mesh

-hemiSphere - Made up of triangles that are seperated into quadrants just like the north, south, east, and west hemisphere.

Install

1) Place the "geoSpheres.mel" file into the user/documents/maya/scripts folder for safe keeping.

2) Place the geoSpheres.png icon file into the user/documents/maya/version(example 2012)/prefs/icons folder.

3) Simply copy the entire script onto the shelf as a button, or source the script file from command line if your prefer.


Notes:

-Currently all spheres are created at default value of 1 as the radius.  1 world unit based on whatever measurement you are working in, 1 cm, 1 foot, 1 meter, etc.  

-There is a radius number field to create larger spheres if needed.

-All spheres have multiple divison levels to create higher and lower poly counts.

-I am a modeler at heart and not a programmer, I started to teach myself MEL as a side hobby to expand my workflow, so the code may not be perfect but hopefully you will find some use for these alternative spheres!

Enjoy~
