Conform pattern to faces

Hi All,

Hoping someone will be able to point me in the right direction on how to approach this. I want the dots/dash pattern to conform to the curved strip surface (included 2 screen grabs to try illustrate the compound curves of the strip!). Had a look on youtube but at odds to describe the process i’m looking to do. If anyone’s able to name a procedure i should look at to accomplish this, would be very grateful.



Can use the curve modifier, using a nurb curve .

In your case, you can copy an edge of your band and transform it on a nurb curve (alt+c )…

Thanks Lane, that’s cracked it!
