Which way is better to design reliefs on a conical vase? for exmmple this relief
Is this for visualization/product development or for manufacturing?
Do the patterns need to look handmade (imperfect) or precise repeats?
precise repeats, because will be for manufacturing
What do you mean with precise repeats? sorry. I usually make the draw of the relief, and execute an extrude offset from the surface. But this relief, share some lines in common, and when i execute a circular pattern the lines doesn't match, maybe because i have a conical vase i guess?
If I am understanding you correctly you are making 1 strip of pattern and then making a circular pattern of the features on you vase, correct?
If you use the wrap command you make the sketch of the whole vase circumference (laid our flat), then workout the spacing and when you wrap it it should fit nice and neat, at that point extrude the pattern.
I see, I will try that method, when finished I will give you news, thanks for your help Jim.
I meant each instance is the same, instead of a random or varied.
Believe you could utilize the wrap command and then extrude cut or extrude boss to get what your after:
You will have to pattern the wrap, here is an example I know its kind of crude, but you get the idea, in 2019 SW
Are you doing that sketch in a 3D sketch correct?
Could you please make the .SLDPRT file available? would be grateful.
There are more elegant ways,, here brute force

Thank you Rob
I think similar to this technique can be tried.
