It’s a simple little python script that uses an image file as a heightmap, maps it on to a sphere, and spits out an STL file. It can be charitably described as “crude”. Usage:
Usage: spherify.py [options] source Options: -h, --help show this help message and exit -o OUTPATH, --output=OUTPATH output to given path -r RADIUS, --radius=RADIUS radius of lowest point in mm --height=HEIGHT additional radius of highest point in mm
You’ll need to have the python imaging library installed to use it. Source after the break.
