Repeating pattern along a shoe contour

Hello all. I am tryig out how to make a repeating pattern in sketchup to follow the contour of a shoe sole. I am testing out some new TPU filament and want to practice some non-common sketchup stuff :slight_smile:

file is attached. The pattern can be any type of pattern, rectangular or wavy.

thanks for any help.

Like this maybe?

I used Path Copy with this little component.

yes, and i should have been more clear. the top section with the 5mm offset, the inside needs to have some tread.

is path copy a extension?

but yes, i need to make tread on the bottom surface of the shoe (which is the top section in sketchup)


Yes it is. You could try it on the top surface.
