I'm trying to model something like the image below, and I'm stuck on the support wires.
I've been trying to create a curve to use a guide for a spring model, but haven't had success. I find it tough to get my curves the right distance off the sphere; it's also tough to get the right curvature.
Here's another example of my problem; I can't figure out how to get good curve placement such that it sits nicely on the surface of my sphere.
Is there a better workflow that I could use to model this?
