Create a 3 dimensional wire mesh
I'm trying to create a model of a patio chair for printing on a resin 3D printer at 1:12 scale.
Here is the reference photo for the chair:
I've modeled most of the chair and I managed to use the Fill and Thicken functions to create the area that needs the mesh.
There may be multiple ways of accomplishing my goals and I'm open to anything that might work. I should note that I am mostly a beginner with OnShape and learning as I go. There could be a spiffy feature available that makes this task very easy. Or it might be impossible to do and I could be wasting my time. Obviously, if this shape were flat, I could use a Linear Pattern along with some Boolean operation to approximate the look. I realize that's not how these wire meshes are manufactured, but then, most chairs aren't 3D printed and if they were, they would probably look different.
