Stent model: Wrap & circular pattern around cylinder. Odd feature for last instance.

Hi,

 

My goal is to replicate a boolean subtraction of a stent from a cylinder such that I can import this into COMSOL for fluid simulation. I have created a single stent strut (1/8 of the circumference) and am trying to wrap it around a cylinder and perform a circular pattern of 8 instances. The wrap and circular pattern works but is only successful up to 7 instances. When I attempt 8 instances in order to fully wrap the stent profile, the whole profile becomes weird (the wrap no longer performs a deboss & the top/bottom part of the stent profile is missing). Any help would be much appreciated.
