  • Creates a sphere mesh

    • The parameter diameter sets the diameter size (float) of the sphere (default 1)
    • You can set some different sphere dimensions, for instance to build an ellipsoid, by using the parameters diameterX, diameterY and diameterZ (all by default have the same value of diameter)
    • The parameter segments sets the sphere number of horizontal stripes (positive integer, default 32)
    • You can create an unclosed sphere with the parameter arc (positive float, default 1), valued between 0 and 1, what is the ratio of the circumference (latitude) : 2 x PI x ratio
    • You can create an unclosed sphere on its height with the parameter slice (positive float, default1), valued between 0 and 1, what is the height ratio (longitude)
    • You can also set the mesh side orientation with the values : BABYLON.Mesh.FRONTSIDE (default), BABYLON.Mesh.BACKSIDE or BABYLON.Mesh.DOUBLESIDE
    • If you create a double-sided mesh, you can choose what parts of the texture image to crop and stick respectively on the front and the back sides with the parameters frontUVs and backUVs (Vector4). Detail here : https://doc.babylonjs.com/babylon101/discover_basic_elements#side-orientation
    • The mesh can be set to updatable with the boolean parameter updatable (default false) if its internal geometry is supposed to change once created
