Greetings! I wonder how I can “plaster” (in lack of a better word) an object with another object. I am guessing there is an obvious extension for this - I just don’t know where to start.
Let me illustrate. I am trying to create a playground with the same feeling as the ones at www.monstrum.dk (the pictures seen in the background of this sketch). Notice the princess tower on the corner of the tree house.
I would like to draw one piece of plank and have it cover the tower shape.
Ah, you might say: Use the Rotate Tool with CTRL for Copying and then enter * x to repeat. Yes this works, but there are some obvious problems:
a. I want the angles on the planks to be calculated, so I don’t get any overlap
b. Some of the shapes I want to “plaster” are round but have a different diameter along the path of the cylinder. Like the Soyuz Booster seen on the rocket to the right.
How should I go about doing this?
