new SphereOutlineGeometry(options)

A description of the outline of a sphere.
Name Type Description
options Object optional Object with the following properties:
Name Type Default Description
radius Number 1.0 optional The radius of the sphere.
stackPartitions Number 10 optional The count of stacks for the sphere (1 greater than the number of parallel lines).
slicePartitions Number 8 optional The count of slices for the sphere (Equal to the number of radial lines).
subdivisions Number 200 optional The number of points per line, determining the granularity of the curvature .
  • DeveloperError : options.stackPartitions must be greater than or equal to one.
  • DeveloperError : options.slicePartitions must be greater than or equal to zero.
  • DeveloperError : options.subdivisions must be greater than or equal to zero.
