How would you go about modelling this on solidworks?
I am attaching an .igs version of its geometry and a sketch of the pattern.
I cant seem to figure out what commands to use to create this.
I wouldn't. Something like that would best be done in Alias (which might be part of Fusion 360 now).
add a material to the outside surface that has that kind of pattern to it.
Hello Ashan,..this looks like a flow or pattern of that common shape along a surface... similar to Rhino3D "FlowAlongSrf"?.. for which, there is no equal in SolidWorks.
So, you would need to be creative,.. and what you maybe able to do or try... do flat pattern or curve driven pattern of that shape and deform it (taper)?
