Thank you very much.
I was curious how to do this with long strips, because sometimes there are patterns that are not straight lines; then little squares doesn’t fit the bill.
But it is definitely a better way to draw the ‘pattern’ flat; do the outlines and then do create a thickness.
The random angle is not exactly random, but from a start point that stands under an angle, the grid direction should however be on the red and green axis, but I get your point.
The circle should fit into a larger round shaped ‘pipe’, which is a component; and this one is a little rotated. Hope that what I wrote make it more clear.
Thank you again. Will play with your method with some other samples.
