Simple shape and simple curve
show user profile  sheheryar_noor
Hi guys, i am modeling this "" The diameter is 21.5 and height is 6cm. A guy name david from here also helped me and the below links are what i have done.
But i don't get satisfy with any. I have applied ffd3x3x3,4x4x4,FFD cyl, taper, noise and everything i could think of, but i can't get this shape with the given dimension :-/. Which pic do look more close to the ref image?

it's all a bit subjective really- need more angles of the reference
i would suggest trying a lathe to get the initial shape though

That's all i have :'(, i am gonna try late and gonna try to load the image in BG and pull vertices manually,maybe i will get exact shape.
One more question, do you think that these vertexes are pulled out? "
" or it is round?

I had another look at this for you Sheheryar, it is a difficult shape with no other reference angles! I think the reason it is so deceptive given the dimensions of it, is that it is not a typical bowl shape, but actually an `oyster` sort of shape. As i said earlier it is a salad bowl so it`ll be wider than an ordinary one anyway. The oyster idea ( ie the `base` shifted forward so it`s off center ) seems to work - taking into consideration the camera lens used also helps.. Beyond that i wouldn`t waste time trying to get it more perfect given the use you have for it.

Anyway, here`s what i came up with:

Dave, Thank you bro. The big problem is the one reference image only and the deceptive angle. i had this also "
" everyone is getting it like this so i think it is like this. Everyone can't be wrong. So what you have done@Dave i am gonna do same either client likes it or not :D
