apply a steel mesh jacket to a flexible hose

Hello to all

I would like to know how to apply a steel mesh jacket to a flexible hose made with Inventor 2017.
In the materials available on the standard list, I found nothing appropriate unless the material called foam metal_01, but I do not know how to overlay it to make it like a mesh. Can someone help me?

Thank you

Hi
Just add a texture from your Library or search the internet, right click the hose and choose properties to add the Mesh you want.remember this takes a lot of Computer power to do this in animation.
