Grooves on cylinder surface?

Grooves on cylinder surface?

Postby dragontech » Sat Jan 28, 2017 7:18 pm

Before I even ask my question, THANK YOU!

OK, so I have a cylinder shaped object and I want small grooves running up and down on the outside surface. Its the end cap for a nacelle. Is there a way to do this with the follow me tool or something? I could do it by hand, each groove, but being so small , I'd be in a nursing home by the time I finished, :roflmao:

Seriously.. Did you just do that to show me? You rock, either way. I have SU15 right now so it's not letting me open the file, (I need to upgrade I guess), so did you just draw the grooves?
Thank you for this. Just might work. :thumb:

IDK just how he did the grooves, but you could for example, just use two edgs in a "v" set to a facet in the circle, then copy/rotate all around.
