So, what I have drawn in the grease pencil above is generally what I want to create with lines inside the rectangle. I want them symmetric about the Y axis (and the pattern around the x axis inside the shape as well), so obviously a lot nicer than what I've drawn, but that's the basic pattern.
I will also be taking these lines and thickening them inside the shape after I've drawn the pattern and making them into meshes.
Any ideas on the best way to do this? I've been experimenting with curves and linking them and whatnot, seems a little rough when I do it. Any ideas appreciated!
***I tried uploading the .blend to pasteall.org but it said error repeatedly - definitely not too big, so don't know :(
