Nodes Aplenty, and Mantra too

Making a hexagonal sphere is easy enough, just hit a polygonal sphere with a divide SOP and viola. Hit that with a wireframe SOP and an attribute wrangle to ramp the color and alpha and, well, it’s just a hexagonal sphere. But it’s a good chance to hop into Mantra and fiddle with settings. Oh, this DoF rendering is nice. Thumbs up for Mantra I know that everyone has their favorite flavor of the month renderer but I have to say Mantra strikes me as a real workhorse. I like it.

Yep, it’s a hexagonal sphere. Tadah. Let’s hit that with the connect points SOP/wrangle asset I made for the spirals…

Well that’s pretty much what you’d expect. I love how effective the few assets I’ve made are. Now an asset itself, expect to see this hexagonal sphere again, I’m enamored with it.
