Modeling Exercise – Soccer Ball

Posted by Chris Plush on Jul 16, 2015

In this Blender modeling tutorial I’ll teach you one way to model a different kind of soccer ball. I swear it’s not a volleyball trust me. The techniques involved will give you ideas on how to go about modeling panels on spherical surfaces. We’ll also be adding a little stitching effect around all the seams. This tutorial involves using modifiers such as the array modifier, mirror modifier, cast modifier, and more. To learn how I made the grass you can watch Steve Lund’s tutorial listed below.

7 years of experience in 3D modeling. Accomplished many different, paid and non profit projects but I never, NEVER heard about existence of Cast modifier. Thank you man, You’re the boss 🙂

Chris Plush

Haha thanks, and I know the feeling. I had never used it before then my teammate Aidy suggested it when I was making a previous tutorial on creating a microphone shield. Now I’m finding all sorts of cool uses for it.

Great tutorial! You learn a lot about different modelling-techniques if you are a beginner, like me. One a sidenote: it’s “football” 😉

Chris Plush

Haha I do call it a football at one point in the video to appease the europeans. Glad you liked the tutorial!
