I am trying to wrap a curve with a repetitive zig zag pattern onto a surface- this is a hypothetical situation to nail down a workflow. What I want is so that the zig zag stays relatively consistent. Think of it like pulling a ribbon tight over a surface- the pattern on the ribbon stays relatively consistent even when bent. Projection and pull are not viable solutions as those severely warps the zig zag spacing.
How can I do this in Rhino? Better yet, how can this be done in grasshopper (maybe recursively bending short portions of the curve relative to the curvature of the surface)? Preferably, this workflow would work for Breps too.
