Making Icosphere

So Im tryna make stylised planet miniature

but the sphere I created is not fully circular

Down below is my icosphere planet and how I made it.

  1. I made polyplatonic? sphere

  2. Smooth options > Add divisions : Linearly,

  3. and at bottom of smooth options window divisions per face to 3

  4. press numberkey 3 to smooth.



And as you can see its still all bumby cuz it still has the shape of the first polyplatonic object.


I want my sphere to be fully circular without any potato like shapes. How can I do this?

Why wouldn't you add divisions to the Platonic Icosahedron? I added 6 - looks dense and completely spherical, even without smoothing/smoothpoly.
