I can not find information about this useful Shark's tool. It's pretty simple to create copies of holes on simple surfaces. I would like to see more complex examples. For example, protectors on the tire, spikes on the mace etc..

Has anyone seen something like this? Thanks.

It is a pity that no one knows how to use this tool.

It seems that the possibilities of this tool are limited.
It works well with primitives. For slightly more complex features, it's useless.

Yes, it is possible with flat objects. But with a convex surface it does not work.

By the way, there is no description of Radial Grid in help docs. This again to the question about user guide and other help materials.
This tool is not intuitively understandable.

Polar Duplicate will work for this.

Yes and No. The pattern tool is a much more advanced(radial, cylindrical, spherical etc...) feature than polar duplication. The reason for this topic is I do not know how to use it effectively. :)

Thank you @rokoko for this link. Video is great. I already understand this tool bit better.
Simple flat objects work perfectly. I would look at more complex examples.
