I am trying to use blender to visualize a molecular systems. One of the issues I am running into is creating a box that shows the domain of the molecules. In order to do this I need to combine three non-orthogonal cylinders with a sphere in 8 places to form the box. I would prefer a solution that ends up with one fully connected mesh that is rounded (not necessarily perfectly spherical) and could be implemented using blender scripting.
What I have attempted
- Adding a uv sphere to the end of the same radius
- Adding a uv sphere of slightly larger radius leads to jagged edges at sphere cylinder interface. If worst come to worst this is the solution I will use.
