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

 

https://forum.solidworks.com/message/174512#174512

 

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.

 

Thanks-
