I just started messing with sketchup a few months ago and have dabbled a bit in blender. I have been using mostly illustrator and sketchup to make my items in my shop thus far. I really would like to graduate from the sticking 2d planes together or using the follow me tool for ring bands into actually being able to wrap a pattern I around a curve or curved volume. For instance, if I wanted to make my branching heart necklace design into a cuff - wrap it around a cylindrical shape to get a smooth curve. Is this even possible in sketchup, is there another program that I can use to do this? I am on a mac..
Ive heard maybe rhino? Also I prefer to stay with free programs...but would love to hear of anything.
