I was trying to create a mesh pattern that loops inside and outside of a cone shape using the tissue add-on but there maybe another way to do this that I just haven't thought of.

I'm trying to create a mesh pattern that loops inside and outside of a cone shape similar to the torus below with the red band that starts and finishes at the same place / face but using a cone shape.

Animated Loop of mesh being selected that goes all the way around the inside to the outside and back again.

Cone shape I'm trying to apply a similar looping mesh to:

Cone shape

Is this possible using just Blender 2.91?

I have tried applying the "Simple Deform modifier" using the Stretch option to the Torus to see if I could stretch it into the correct cone dimensions (see image below), but it messes up the top and bottom and it warps the cone shape.

This will be 3D printed so I'm trying to get the dimensions to stay within that cone shape.

PS: I was trying to do this with Tissue 0.3.48 on Ubuntu 20.04 and Blender 2.91. But willing to try something else / another technique.

  • $\begingroup$ I think you don't need face loops, but just the the good faces, do you? $\endgroup$ – lemon Dec 11 '20 at 11:06
  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure what you mean by "good faces" but the highlighted faces just shows one full cycle of the loop, but I do need the other face loops. $\endgroup$ – Rick T Dec 11 '20 at 14:39

    $\begingroup$ From the deformed torus, use knife tool with Z cut. Then move GG the cut to the upper (and lower) part. $\endgroup$ – lemon Dec 11 '20 at 20:11
