The Splop command copies, rotates, scales, and wraps objects on a surface, like pottery sprigging or appliqué.


1. Select objects.
2. Draw a sphere around the input object(s).

This is the reference sphere that determines the size and orientation.

3. Select a surface to wrap the objects onto.
4. Pick a point on the selected surface.
5. Drag out a sphere.
