I am currently attempting to model a sieve, and am having trouble getting the mesh of the seam the way I want it to. I’ve made a model with the wireframe modifier, but was dissatisfied with the sharp edges created by it (was also unable to solve it through a bevel modifier below the wireframe in the stack). What I created then was a woven mesh using curves. However, when I used proportional editing, it stretched the mesh and flattened the tubes, an undesired result. The mesh was also flattened when using shrink-wrap modifier.
Is there any way to curve out my mesh to form a sieve while maintaining the properties of the woven mesh?
