Seamless pattern around extruded profile (made of splines)

By BKHW on 15 Sep 09:41 1 answer 0 comments

Hi! I would like to have a cut extrude around a profile with a seamless pattern. What is the best way to do this? I tried wrap, but got all kinds of problems (maybe wrong settings?), sheet metal is not possible since it is made of splines (correct?), and a curve driven pattern gave problems at the end points. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I think I fixed it now by taking a negative of he pattern. It seems wrap does not work well with forms in forms. Does anyone know how I can scale the block (pattern) to exactly a width of 2.5 mm? I can only find the scale factor..
