New pattern for 3004p07.dat - Michael Heidemann - 2014-01-05

I really have my problems in idealisation of this pattern like requested http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cgi?f=parts/3004p07.dat.

Here is what I came along with the picture provided by Steffen.

Is this really better than the previous?

ugh, terrible.
I think you've used some automatic tool to create the pattern, including all jagged lines etc.
come on, the pattern itself is not so complicated.
it's some faces of an icecream on a green background with 2 red hinges.
my suggestion is to simply draw the outlines of the surfaces manually in a tool,
using a part scan as background.
what you are seemingly trying to do here currently instead is to model all the print artefacts of the pattern like ink blotches, overlaps etc, I think this is going all the wrong direction.
I cannot see what is so different with this pattern than all the others we have.
