Projecting a 2D hatched sketch around a 3D non-uniform surface
Task: Applying a 400x400mm square hatched sketch to a 3D surface.
The Surface: See below. Imagine a pyramid shape with the top cut off at an angle and the corners rounded with different radii for all corners.
I now have to wap this 400x400 grid around this surface. How can this be achieved?
All previous attempts have failed:
Wrap - The surface is not conical or cylindrical
Split line- The sketch stretches around the corner
Projected Sketch - The sketch has more than one closed entity
3D sketch - Connecting projected flat patterns onto the flats and trying to 'spline on surface' between the points (as seen in the first drawing)
Sheet Metal - Any sketches made in the flat pattern do not apply when folding the sheet metal back to 3d
EDIT:*I have also tried changing the appearence of the surface to a 400x400mm checkered pattern but the squares bend and warp around the corners.*
EDIT-2: *I have recently discovered the 'face curves tool' but this tool does not maintatin a 400 x 400mm grid either*
*Verry little response to this question, as the only comment below states, perhaps this cannot be done in Solidworks*
I have been stuggeling with this for a while now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
