That is just awesome!
Excellent mutations.. You're having way to much fun.
This part is much improved with the variances added. Well done.
Do you hard tumble them, too?
EDIT: This also got me thinking of an old AutoCAD utility that squiggle architectural drawings to make them look olde school.
I thought you could use it to squiggle up the sketches.
Squiggle saves images and vector file formats only, but DWF may be the segue to DWG via What Is DWG? | DWG Viewers & File Format Info | Autodesk
Probably be tough to use a DT, but it cool to see how well it breaks straights & curves into olde school non-linear.
Thanks Kevin, those links look good. I'd be interested in trying it out. At present my boss does hand drawings to win the job and I follow up with SW.
These parts will be blacksmith made, but when budgets are tight or there are just too many parts we will get them laser cut. It's always a bit disappointing comparing the results with the hand worked job. We don't tumble them, normally hit them against a rusty anvil a few times and throw them in a fire
What I like is that this technique spits a load of variations out that are nicer than anything I'd come up with myself.

Giving away trade secrets, I see. Tsk, tsk.
With Squiggle, you might be able to work up an SW design first and turn it into an olde school squiggled presentation for the client.
And by starting in SW, you can also render products in place with an appropriate scene, since most people (I've discovered) can't visualize in 3D too well.
Hope Squiggle works out for this.
Post back if you squiggle up something.
