Recently i had this question on my mind, can you make a cube out of revolve boss feature in solidworks,
I agree that this is a ball, but it doesn’t like a smooth ball, i assume the simplest way to do it is just make a circular pattern with over 9000 instances, but it wont look like it was made with revolve boss, compared to the cube i made with revolve boss.
Incidentally! This observation is related to why the lathe is the king of the machine tools, able to progenerate more lathes and mills.
The only part of a lathe that can’t be made with a lathe is the bed, but that’s just a flat plate.
Smaller flat plates, flat to better than 1/10,000" can be made on a lathe, and these used to fashion a larger flat bed.
Which begs the existential question: which came first, the lathe or the egg?
Are you allowed to use the fillet tool? Or is that too easy?
Want to show us what the sketch is?
If the rules are “no revolutions and no fillets”:
Surface-Fill1 is doing the heavy lifting here.
You can totally do this without the circular pattern and mirror as well, you just have to do each corner one by one manually before stitching.
What, you don’t download your balls from McMaster-Carr?
Very pretty Moiré pattern!
