How to bend a voronoi surface: flat to curved?

Postby kellenraidfractal » Tue Jan 10, 2017 8:11 pm

I want to make a curved surface with voronoi structure. The voronoi software seems to work only on flat surfaces. How do I go about bending a voronoi pattern flat surface to conform to a bendy surface e.g. a spoon or an egg?

You could use Vertex Tools or FFD to bend the object into the shape.

...or Flowify by Caul! ;)
Secret is to have the target surface "quadrilatary"
So erase for the dome some line's segments! (here top & Bottom) :ugeek:
Of course you can erase very tiny lines of surfaces if you want quasi Sphere, Dome etc...! ;)

I vote for Flowify, since the bending described is multi-directional.
