Map Curves to Surface

Hi everyone,

I’m attempting to map a concentric dot pattern onto a curved surface using surface morph and wondered if you could help me please? Thanks!

The easy way looks off by 90 degrees? Tried but failed so far to fix it. :thinking:

P.S. By the way… we discussed this last October? Might be better to create the circles on the curved surface?

Hi Joseph,

Thanks for your help.
Yes we did and I used the same gradient dot pattern definition you provided to create these curves :+1: I still don’t know how I would go about creating the dot pattern on the curved surface to begin with :confused:

Offset on Surface looks promising?

Ok, I’ll give that a try. Thank you.

There is probably a way to get map/morph to surface working. I have other things to do this morning, maybe later.

Oh look! I hastily got something to work. More fiddling with the parameters is needed, the circles need to be pulled (or projected/extruded?) to the surface to cut holes, etc., but the basic idea of adapting the old code appears to work. (96.5 KB)


Great work, @Joseph_Oster! Thanks for coming through to help me again!

Added a “gutter” slider (blue group) to inset the outer ring of circles, added cut holes (orange group, SLOW!), adjusted some parameters slightly. (104.8 KB)


Very nice, @Joseph_Oster !
