I hope this is the right place for this question. I started using Blender a week or so ago. I am using a tutorial which a forum member on another forum is putting together as he learns Blender. So far so good I have to say although I know I will never reach the heights of the skills of a lot of you chaps here.
Now my question is to do with part of a model I am doing. The model is of a 1970's Genesis Dalek from the Dr who series. The part I am having trouble with is supposed to be a wire mesh. If you have seen the mesh on disposable barbeque's thats what I am aiming for.
The thing is I don't have a clue what or how I should create it. Also as this wire mesh is not a flat plane but more a section through a cone form if you will. I attach an image of the form. This is what I want to make into a wire mesh.
The mesh fits over the top of the upper belt on the shoulders in the second image. Please be gentle with me I'm still very new to Blender. Google sketchup was was my previous experience up until I changed my operating system to linux. Prior to that drawing with 2D cad for radio control aircraft plans. Being 42 seems to be having a bearing on it for me as well, I keep forgetting things
