colour.geometry.primitive_vertices_sphere#

colour.geometry.primitive_vertices_sphere(radius: float = 0.5, segments: int = 8, intermediate: bool = False, origin: ArrayLike = np.array([0, 0, 0]), axis: Union[Literal['+z', '+x', '+y', 'yz', 'xz', 'xy'], str] = '+z') ndarray[source]#

Return the vertices of a latitude-longitude sphere primitive.

Parameters:
  • radius (float) – Sphere radius.

  • segments (int) – Latitude-longitude segments, if the intermediate argument is True, then the sphere will have one less segment along its longitude.

  • intermediate (bool) – Whether to generate the sphere vertices at the center of the faces outlined by the segments of a regular sphere generated without the intermediate argument set to True. The resulting sphere is inscribed on the regular sphere faces but possesses the same poles.

  • origin (ArrayLike) – Sphere origin on the construction plane.

  • axis (Union[Literal['+z', '+x', '+y', 'yz', 'xz', 'xy'], str]) – Axis (or normal of the plane) the poles of the sphere will be aligned with.

Returns:

Sphere primitive vertices.

Return type:

numpy.ndarray

Notes

  • The sphere poles have latitude segments count - 1 co-located vertices.
