support material 3d modeling

Dear forum,

I really like the Ultimaker 2 support material that comes with the 3d models (see the picture at http://postimg.org/image/wauq3qe0p/ or the preview below). Now I would like to make whole surfaces of that kind of material, including the nice surface shapes. So let's say an A5 size 3d printable surface inspired by these support materials. What would be the best way to make these? Is there an easy way, or should I draw all individual lines in a 3d modelling programme. I use Rhinoceros 5 but am open to other suggestions of course.

Thanks very much in advance,

Douwe

not sure I understand what you're trying to accomplish.

It looks like you have some first layer issues going on with your print, from the picture you posted. Are you aware that all those lines are supposed to be touching?

What he said above Please elaborate.

Otherwise that looks like a very impressive brim :)

Dear LePaul, Solid Print 3d,

Thanks fortaking time to answer my question! As a newbie I was confusing some things but a fellow student helped me out just now, so issue is solved.

Best, Douwe
