How to do the math to calculate dimples on a golf ball?

Hi All,

Could you give me some tips (or some similar tutorials) on how to proceed with creating a dimple pattern across a smooth sphere such that I'm able to define the dimple depth and diameter?

Thanks and regards,
Robert

What is a dimple and how does it relate to python ?
Due to the reasons discussed here we will be moving to python-forum.io/ on October 1 2016

Actually the OP's problem is how to generate equally spaced points on a sphere. Once this is done the rest is easy. And there are known algorithms for this, rather easy to find when you know what you are looking for.
This forum has been moved to http://python-forum.io/. See you there.
