    Looking for the best way to draw carved rock material

    Arnaud Scholten

      Hi guys,

       

      Im trying to find the best way to quickly draw a carved rock fase in Solidworks 2014. I want to make a grave-monument from granite with smooth and cut/ carved finish.

      You can immitate the rock face by adding bump and displacement surface finish. This way you get a bit of the right idea, but when you make a technical drawing you can't see the carved edges because you did not model the carving into the solid.

       

      So how can I easily model the solid so it looks like irregular cut/carved rock?

      I tried to do some cutextrudes around the edges but it is to liniair. Needs to be more random cuts.

       

      Best regards,

      Arnaud
