Question How to draw sphere with slices through 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 12 Jun, 2013
From: <matt_b>

I am trying to draw the following:

1)sphere 10cm radius 2)cut off end of sphere like this http://etc.usf.edu/clipart/65700/65740/65740_sphere_lg.gif 3)Rotate shape 90degrees 4)repeat 2, until 6 cuts have been made.

The closest image I could find from a google image search was this for the cuts and rotations, but obviously it's not a sphere:

I can't work out how to do this from the shape defintions. Is there anything to draw this in CAD then generate C++ code for Geant?

Failing that, is there an easy way to draw a spherical tetrahedron?
