The ellipsoid is similar in character to the sphere, but allows for a flatter top surface which can be controlled by the two unique attributes for this primitive: Bulge top and Side
Bulge makes the top and the bottom of the sphere more squared off.
It has been a long time since I last wrote on this site. Having spent the last few years concentrating on my full time job, I am now in a position where I have enough time to return to working with 3D and incorporate it into my job.
As a result, I will be working my way through and documenting my chosen software, Modo, to get a deeper understanding of the program, and giving myself a full refresher on 3D in general. Throughout this process, it is inevitable that I will use other resources on the web, for example, youtube, the modo manual etc. Where applicable I will post the resources at the end of the post. While this process is largely for myself and my own learning, I hope that presenting it here will help at least someone else at the same time.
