Kewl haha true, if I had a dollar for each time I do the thumb-cmd + index-s combo I'd be richer than Elon Musk ;)
It's automatic there must be some special neuronal links that formed throughout the years for this purpose :)
Or a "Copy 3D circles" version instead of a sphere for fun ;)
However, it doesn't close as nicely on the sphere top & bottom maybe.
(got a bug too with this version, when the rotation is set to -90 or 90° with a "Transform 3D node", using the draggable camera I'm only capable of rotating it on 1 axis. For different degrees of rotations transform it works funnily enough) Maybe my Make Circle Points node is the culprit though.
