Trying to place uniform rectangle panels on a Curved surface

Currently trying to place rectangular panels on a curved surface without deforming the geometry:


Would preferably be done so that each panel is oriented using the surface normal. If I could at least generate a grid of points on the surface with adjustable distance I could place the geometry using the points.

Any Ideas?

Hello - I think FlowAlongSrf is what you’re after, possibly with Rigid=Yes, but I’m not sure of that.
In GH, a Surface Morph is what you’re after, I guess
