The Sketch-A-Bowl™ function is provided to better support you during initial project design activities. This is when you are searching around trying to come up with a shape and you probably can't draw worth a hoot. At least this is a major problem for me.

Sketch-A-Bowl™ provides you with several simple object shapes to start from and then allows you to tug/push at various points on the object to deform it into what you want. How simple can you get! If you want to draw your project with the mouse, you can do that too!

start with something simple create something complex

These two sample pictures show it all. The first is one of the starter shapes which can be modified by pushing/pulling on its walls. The second shows a project profile just created in the Sketch Pad.

The starter shapes are cylinder, half-circle, circle, and parabola, plus 25 other project shapes. The number of tug/pull points is variable from 2 to 9, depending on the number of points in the shape. You can save your developed shapes as starting points for future projects. When you are satisfied with the shape, you can publish it as a file that can be directly loaded into the Segmented Project Planner, or as a .csv file. Once you've made a project file, and possibly made further shape changes, you can save the project as a new starter shape.

If you can't achieve the shape you want by pushing/pulling on the walls, you can go to the Sketch Pad where you can control the individual data points. The shape is displayed using Bezier curves to make it easy for you to create fluid curves in your project profile.
