Patterned dome on a curved surface


New member
Hi all,

I'd like some advice on creating a patterned feature on a curved surface. The image below will help explain.....

As you can see from the JPEG, I have a curved surface that I wish to create a patterned feature on. I thought that I could wrap the patterned curves you see above, around the curved surface and create the domed features from there, but unfortunately it did'nt work completely. Admittedly I may have not quite set up the feature correctly, or perhaps there is a much better solution. If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
