I am having trouble creating a gravity well and a wire framed globe in Photoshop 3D CS6. The examples are here: #'s 1/5 and 5/5.

I tried using a gradient map to create a depth map object but the form is not editable if I understand PS 3D correctly. Only the scale, light, texture and perspective.

The surace of the gravity well needs to be a white wire grid pattern over black. The globe is basically the same. Can this be accomplished on Photoshop CS6 3D or do I have to farm this out to a 3D guy.

I have included samples of my objectives: #1 and 5 plus screen shots of what I ended up with, the form of which was uneditable based on what I understand. I also don't know how I would create the wire frame once I have the form.

I deally I would use the final images as png's on a 2D suface which I would later wrap onto a 3D surface.

Any thoughs please!

Thanks folks in advance:

Yes, you can just change the render setting.
1. Open the 3D Panel and the Properties Panel

3. You will the Properties Panel become > 3D Properties
