Hi,I need some tips on how to make this cage/hatch/mesh pattern of Effiel tower

I am trying to model Effiel tower in rhino and stuck at this point. I want to make hatch/cage/mesh pattern of Effiel tower. I don’t want to manually connect lines and make that pattern several times. so is there any better way?

Hello - which is it? Are you working on a 2d drawing or a 3d model? Do you need curves, surfaces, meshes?

Hi,Thanks for reply.
I am working on 3d model.
sorry I confused you I didn’t have the correct word for that pattern.
I thought to first trace it in 2d and then extrude it to make it a polysurface.
I think a boolean operation will do the trick.I will try it out.
please let me know if there is any better way

Hello - The approach I would take, if you are not looking to reproduce the thing too literally, is to make the overall shape as surfaces with thickness and then cut into it with the pattern -perhaps that is what you are suggesting. The model you linked seems to have about that level of detail.
