3D Sphere with mapped image possible?


#1

Hi All,

I know we can build 3d cubes using flat layers rotated. But is a 3d sphere possible at all?

For example the earth.

I’m wishing to recreate a 3D globe much like this one where even the image is mapped in a 3D way.

I know this is possible outside of webflow but wanted to know is this would ever be possible purely with webflow?

Thanks,
Josh

Hi Josh, short answer is no! You can make a 3D sphere this way purely with Webflow: http://post-detection-protocol.webflow.io/ as a series of circular divs but not an actual 3D model that has a mapped image around it. Regards Kai

I had that in mind and searched for it, but it looks very bad :smiley: Also this,

There’s maybe a creative way around it, it depends on how free you want your rotation to be. This page is quite good: https://cssanimation.rocks/spheres/

@keejo that sphere is still beautiful :slight_smile:

Thanks both! Much appreciated :slight_smile:

The mind was blown at the exquisite simplicity of the solution with the 3d sphere on post-detection. I literally wept with joy seeing such a magnificent display of creative skills.
