Sphere

Sphere[{x, y, z}, r]
represents a sphere of radius r centered at .

Sphere[{x, y, z}]
represents a sphere of radius 1.

Sphere[{{x1, y1, z1}, {x2, y2, z2}, ...}, r]
represents a collection of spheres of radius r.

DetailsDetails

  • Sphere renders as a sphere in Graphics3D.
  • The radius r can be specified either in absolute coordinates or as Scaled[s].
  • Colors and other material properties of spheres can be specified using color directives, as well as Specularity and Glow. »
  • Spheres can be specified as transparent using Opacity directives. »
  • Sphere[] is equivalent to Sphere[{0, 0, 0}]. »
  • Sphere[{c1, c2, ...}, {r1, r2, ...}] represents a collection of spheres with centers and radii .
