Looking for a sphere technique

Postby jediknight219 » Thu Sep 02, 2010 2:06 pm

I seem to remember a method of making spheres using this part:

Anybody have any idea what I'm talking about? Or am I gonna have to figure this thing out myself?

There was a post about a "sphere" made of those stuck on the Boinicle spikey ball.

Yeah I'd actually asked for help with a similar design... if only there was a way to connect two of those insectoid eyeball pieces! Arg. Let me know if you find one that works.

What I came up with is almost the same as the spheres in this MOC.

You could use Moko's idea as one way to do it. http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=1432644
Or you could wedge one of these tires-http://peeron.com/inv/parts/70162-into the hollow section. The friction will hold it together. I learned it from a legoland CA masterbuilder, so it works.

Dunno I can't view Flckr at work... but the above-mentioned ones would work. The trick is then attaching it to a pole or mount or something for an organic look...maybe a variation of the golf-ball design? Hmm...
