A lot of people asked for a sphere deformation of the cube. I can’t realize a full sphere, due to limitations how the cube caps are painted, but maybe I will find a solution for this in a FAR future. I’ve also haven’t found a better name, so that the new deformation is called “Sphere like”.

As we have to do most of the transformation on the CPU, it should be clear that these effects have a heavy impact on the FPS and CPU load.

    Great work,
    Looks more like a “ring” or “donut” :)

    Donut would be a great name :)
    Nice work!

    Hi We want to try the sphere deformation of the cube but we can’t find the right plugin! What are we supposed to do in order to install the sphere? Thanks for your help!

    Check the cubeaddon plugin :)

    I think a cylinder deformation would be nicer (maybe it’s already there even) as it would leave things more readable.

    where to get the package?

    Perhaps allow rendering a full sphere if cube caps are disabled?
