Pierced base 3D Model
This 3D model of a vessel shows traces of modification of the base by a tool.
The original pot was produced with the wheel-coiling method as defined by Roux-Courty (1998), shown below. View our blog post about wheel coiling here

Technical details The 3D model was created with the David SLS-3 scanner. The original file size is 741MB, has a resolution of 0.0202mm (vertex spacing) and contains 5928006 vertices. To be able to make a printable model that still shows the relevant traces, the base part was separated from the rest of the decimated model of the vessel (741002 vertices), upscaled 3 times and converted to a STL file.
