Pattern on curvy surface

I need to do a pattern of cavitys on a curved surface, a lofted and freeformed surface.
Rhinoceros have something almost working for me, but it is not a preferred solution to export/import to Rhino. ProE/Catia I dont know yet, but I dont have the licenses anyway, and I dont want to involve neighbour engineers in this somewhat emrarrassing problem.
I have treid a number of workarounds, including placing the pattern by hand, but the number of instances (>500) makes it impossible as I need to be able to change the suface shape on customers demand, and I dont want to tell them to wait a day for a minor surface change...

I think I have tried to find a way to do this before, but I cant find the topic in this forum. As I remember it was not possible in SW, maybe we have something in the never versions of SW2008?
