    I'm reviving this thread because I'm curious to know if LW2019's procedural texture can now do various honeycomb patterns for us. If so, then cool. I saw this Rode Stereo VideoMic X online. Usually I'd only be interested in what material would be used for speaker foam and mesh. Looking at that microphone I wondered how Lightwave can now do lattice designs that wrap around another surface.

    A thought without having tested it.

    I would probably try making one honecomb facet, and make it have good enough divisions on the edges with points, clone it in a good pattern, then heatshrink it to the surface, probably send it to blender and use wireframe on it to get the extrusion.
    No further cost with any expensive plugin.

    nah, you'd often be better off modeling it, or even texturing it, or like Prometheus says, heatshrinking it.

    here, a modeling approach >

    Thanks a lot. After I've installed my plugins in LW2019.1.5 I'll give it a try. however, I'd still like to see what the procedural texture can do.
