Thanks all! I'm glad I was able to pick an object that attracted so many contestants. I had some stiff competition.

Thanks again Toe_Head for hosting!

Congrats Woodsy, that was a great baseball. Perhaps you can post the map so others can use it.....

Thank you Dipstick and AndrewDavid! I'm sorry but I didn't use a map. I started with Shape 3D on a blank canvas and added the texture and the threads next. Then I enclosed the threads on a different layer so I could use Bevel Object. I drew all the holes separately.

amazing that you got the curvature correct without using a map..............

 

Anyway, even though my images were dis-allowed, I have no problem uploading my own map. Everyone is free to use it at will........

The part I couldn't get was how to create the proper texture. I spent time on the laces and tried to get them to lineup correctly on a sphere in Shape3D. I came close once with the texture part - but I ruined it and couldn't recreate it. I just got lucky finding the right color. The textures you guys did was amazing. I don't think I followed the correct path to create the object after reading your comments. Thanks for the feedback.

With the texture I used the "Random Shape Fill" plugin over and over and over then faded it to my liking. For the laces I used the "Line" tool and looked at a picture of a baseball for a comparison. But the important part is putting a radial gradient in transparency mode on the texture to make it look realistic.

Thanks Woodsy and Dipstick. How else am I to learn? And don't say tutorials . Experience hanging with you pro's is a much better idea. B)
