I'm trying to recreate a snare drum hoop. This seemed like a quick project for me, but is turning out to really confuse me.
Note - this is only for visual reference and renderings - I'm not trying to produce these.
What I have attached is what I've come up with so far - this shows the basic hoop, with one "ear". I'm not really stoked about the geometry of the ear, but visually it's OK. I can not figure out how to pattern this around the hoop- it keeps giving an error. I'm wondering if I've done something fundamentally wrong with the way I went about it, and if that's why I cannot pattern.
Any ideas on a better / more accurate way to design this? I believe these hoops are pressed in one or two steps from sheet metal - I'm not sure if a custom forming tool could work here, I haven't really used them in SW before.
Thanks! SW2018 SP5
