How to model in solidworks a honeycomb texture / pattern over a bottle that has not a cylindrical shape?

By Andres Auz on 13 Apr 21:02 1 answer 0 comments

Which is the better method? I would like to 3d print the patter effect, so applied a visual texture does not work. I also tried tu use curve driven pattern but it doesn´t works... Can anyone help me.

    From my experience there is no method in SW that will allow to do that in any automatic way.

    Some time ago, i needed to do knurl surface over non cylindrical surface, I did it, in 4 hours of manual plotting and projecting of curves, cut features etc...

    In your case, it will be even harder, still it is possible, but very time consuming work
