Sorry I have no images, as I was just trying this, got fed up and did not save it . But I’ll do my best to explain. I have searched and tried a few techniques.
I f you can point me in the right direction that would be great.
The Tissue modifier/tool will do something similar to what I want but I need to do it with a predefined pattern, after using that I can then fuse the two objects to create one object.
It’s like the opposite of engraving, over a dome or terrain, so it follows the surface.
I have complex shapes, think terrain for one, a dome and an elliptical dome.
I’m trying to apply and join a pre-defined complex pattern like a lattice or basket weaving to the surfaces but bet needs to be slightly raised. I’ve tried some different techniques and no of them give the desired result. Think icing a cake with a pattern or applying a metal pattern applied over a domed ornate box and wanting to stand pound by a few mm.
eventually this will be 3D printed.
The shrink wrap, shrinks it, and it does not cover it fully or neatly, and is quite uneven; adding lots of subdivisions to the pattern it does not help either.
