^ +1.

Look at your reference photo for a minute.

There are clearly six ribbon/material things.

Two going up/down.

Two going left/right.

Two going diagonally up/down.

What you've created is:

Two ribbons, going left/right and up/down.

Then you've spaced these ribbons (incorrectly, when compared to your reference photo).

Lastly, you cloned and rotated it.

This is why your result != your reference.

If the holes are octagonal, start with an octagonal hole and build from there.

eight sided cylinder, create shape from edge, visible in view-port, break verts, drag verts...done.


edit: or use one of these and modify the resulting mesh:

Thank everyone specially FX and Jped. I realized that the gap between ribbons change the shape much.

Practice practice and practice that's what makes you perfect.

It is not welded, some more tweaking required. Thanks to everyone.

I have the Viscorbel's tutorial which you are talking about@FX, but i wanted model it. I thought garp will have magic lamp again for something like this :P

I would try it on one another way which i think fx posted before for me for weavy pattern and the method is below.

1) Create a box with an even number of length and with segs and an odd number of height segs
2) Delete the top and bottom faces
3) Detach every other row of faces to element (from top to bottom)
4) Select a corner edge of every odd row and an edge next to the corner one of every even row
5) Use dot ring in Graphite to select every other edge
6) Move the edges along the local z axis as needed
7) Apply a 2x2 FFD modifier, select the four upper vertices and scale as needed
8) Apply a shell modifier
9) Turbo Smooth
