Pattern on organic surface distorted


(Hello) #1

Hi I want to model a vent grid on an organic shape and the circle pattern starts to distort. I used UV curves to apply the pattern onto the surface. What could be a solution to keep the circle pattern everywhere?

The pattern is perfect on the top:

But distorts on the sides:

I tried to rebuild the surface with more control points but doesnt helps.

Thank you in advance!

Hi Adam - please post a file with the target surfaces and the pattern you’re using.

Looks like you have a smaller grid than you need to cover all the surface. As Pascal said, a 3dm file and some boundary to show the area and direction of distribution will be very helpful.

In the FlowAlongSurface command, maybe you can try Rigid = Yes

What do you mean by that? Can you include a sketch of the desired result?
