Can you create an assembly by filling a sphere with smaller parts

I am trying to find a way to create an assembly similar to what is described in this post:


What I want to accomplish though is to have the faces essentially align with the part that will make up the assembly. Trying to use equations, patterns, and/or VBA to do it.


As an example




Have this pyramid fill this sphere as much as possible constraining each part similar to like the one shown to each face.


A pattern would be prefered so it is scalable dependant on how big the area is that is needed to be filled.


I have search as best I could, but I am thinking if it does exist I am not used the right keywords to locate it on the forums. Any direction or tips or references would be greatly appreciated.
