I am trying to create a printable height map from a hemisphere shape.
The way I know how to do it on a flat plane is to use the displacement modifier and use an image. When I use an image that have the dimensions of the Radius (for Height) and Circumference (for Width) it creates the result shown in the above link.
I would like to know how to do it so that the image can wrap around the hemisphere and show the relief of the image. I would also like to do it in a way that would have minimal distortion of the image when I'm done. The image of the flower will not be the image I use for the final product, I just used this as a test. The final image will be a full image.
Later I would cut the object into pieces for easier 3D printing but right now I just want to get the object created.
