Default How do I get a GeoSphere?

I need to make a GeoSphere, I had a look at highend3d.com and searched for it but couldn't find one.

Cheers for the help.

right this is much harder than I thought, I can't seem to find any docs on the maths behind this. Bit of a pain in the arse. You should be able to use the highend 3d ones though:

David Stripinis's book "The MEL Companion" has a whole section on writing a script to create a geosphere. Worth checking out.
