Additional Information

""" About this script:- This script enables the creation of a "PolySphere": an all quad sphere for use in sculpting and is intended to be used in place of a standard UVSphere, where the poles on would cause pinching and other unwanted artefacts. Apart from being all quads, the advantages are that the topology is distributed evenly across the surface and that they also use only around 80% of the geometry of a comparable resolution UV sphere.

Usage:- Activate the Extra Objects script via the "Add-Ons" tab under the user preferences. The PolySphere can then be accessed via Add Mesh> Extra Objects> PolySphere.
