Patchwork 3D Enterprise 2021.1 X5

Hemisphere Primitive

Available parameters:

  • Name,

  • Number of meridians: number of tessellated divisions running from pole to pole. The poles are aligned to the Y axis.

  • Number of parallels: number of tessellated divisions wrapping around the sphere. These are parallel to the XZ plane.

  • Main radius: radius of the corresponding sphere. Consequently, this is also the height of the hemisphere.

  • Edge radius: radius of the bottom edge of the hemisphere. This dimension must be smaller than the main radius. This creates a rounded bottom edge, which improves visual quality when the hemisphere is used as a skydome.

A hemisphere is always automatically positioned on the XZ plane usually used for defining the ground of the 3D scene.
