Represent 3D printing

Working on creating 3D Print layer texture. Right now I, all in Rhino, I contour the shape, then either apply pipe or sweep profile, But When I use multi-pipe it will skip rows opr create half pipes, so I can only select a few contours at a time…

any suggestions on how to automate this using Grasshopper? It doesn’t need to be this process shapes => Contour => Pipe … it just needs the texture, possibly applied directly to a surface?

Thank you in advance

Usually the issue with the pipe component in gh is due to performance. Maybe try mesh pipe if the model is just for rendering. The file size will also significantly reduce in this case.
