Houdini - Practice

So I have started having a play in Houdini. Really enjoy the interface and could see this being my main workhorse in the future. I decided to see if I could make a football. This proved to be a useful way to learn some Houdini basics.

First I made went about making a platonic:

 I wanted to use the face count to extrude and subdivide each face.  I created a ray - sphere to choose the size of my football.

 As you can see I have created the football using a for each loop using the face count (patches attribute). I then used the fuse and subdivide command to finish it off. What I really like about Houdini is how I can make non-destructive changes to my assets.   Jake
