Hi guys, I'm trying to make a stent model, but I'm having difficulty with it. I've already created a sketch of it, and then I tried to get it to wrap around the inside of a cylinder I made. However, whenever I tried to make it go completely around (the full 360 degrees), it would prompt an error for intersecting geometry. I've tried wrapping the stent half way around the cylinder and then mirroring it, but I've had no luck. I've also tried filling the missing area that results from an uncompleted wrap with a solid, but it doesn't match the stent exactIy. If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated!

That is going to be very tricky because if you sketch it in 2D it is hard to make sure it will match up perfectly when you wrap it. The way your sketch is right now one section of the stent is 84.35 degrees, so it won't match up right because that does not divide into 360 evenly.

Check out my attached example where I dimensioned the width of a section to be 1/4 of the circumference. Then I projected and embossed only one section and did a circular pattern to complete it.
