Patterning on a curved surface

Question asked by Trevor Nemeth on Sep 18, 2018

I'm trying to model the trigger pad from a 1911 pistol, and I'm stuck at patterning the grooves cut into the surface. I'm assuming the best way to tackle this is with a pattern, but I can't seem to figure it out, the closest I've come is with a curve driven pattern. I created the first groove using a swept cut (and had to extend the profile beyond the surface to get it to work properly). I've attached the part and a .pdf of the drawing I'm using to create the model. This was created using Solidworks 2017 Premium. Any help would be appreciated.
