I've seen samples of it being done with Hole Wizard, have a rounded bottom drill and select random patterns for your placement around the Pot. Some you could do a circular pattern, but I think it would look better if you just randomly place the indentations...
Hi John, I was wondering how you would make the rounded bottom drill. It would be ea huge help, thanks!
Using the hole wizard, could be a challenge, because of the issue of getting a perfect round bottom, however I don't think that the Hammer marks are really rounded, more like if you were to make a cross section view, it would look more like a french curve etc...
Here is what I tried...
Hole Wizard setting
Bottom of the hole
which is almost flat and will give you flat bottomed holes
Then you may want to mess with the depth, is it going to be better deeper then too shallow, because of adding fillets later...
Then use the Dome Feature to indent the hole further - add fillets to the topside of the hole, different dimensions.
Do a few groups and do a circular pattern, let them overlap if it works.
Then when you like what you see, use the deform feature and go around the outside and at random places pull the part in or out, just a tiny bit, just to take away the cookie pattern look...
Just like its done in real life - random indentations - lots of them.
Cool trick with the hole wizard & rounded drill btm, john.
Offset the surface.
3D sketch all the points you want in that surface.
Revolve a sphere
Sketch pattern the sphere
Combine (Subtract) the spheres from the main body.
Fillet as you wish.....
