    How to 'dimple' a curved surface?

    Brian McVeigh

      Hi,

      I am trying to add 'dimples' or Braille like protrusions from a curved surface.  These protrusions are not uniform in size or distribution so I cannot pattern along a curve.  Any easy ways to do this?  Rhino has Flow Along Surface and Alias has Conform Rig but can't seem to find a tool in Solidworks for it.  Image attached of the type of protrusion I want to achieve, the little bumps on either side of the bottle.

       

      Thanks for any help!
