Any idea how to create checkering texture for grip?


Topic says it all, I am trying to Checker texture around the object just like what is shown below, any ideas how this could be accomplished without taking 3 years to place each diamond lol?

There is definitely no easy way to do this at this point.

Using Transform/Freeform can make it easier, especially the Copy&Paste functionality.

Where you will have some problem are the curved faces, where you have to adjust your diamonds manually to the curvature.


That’s what I have noticed, thank you for getting back with me.
