> Photographs of bells . . . measurements . . . 3D manipulation.
This is a most interesting idea - unfortunately I don't have the
technical knowledge myself to help.
However, I guess the external shape of a bell is less than half the
story. Good example of this is Whitechapel bells with major third
tierces, which looked from the outside to be the normal shape, but
which had the bump on the inside of the waist.
And, as you pointed out to me the other day, one of the keys to
satisfactory prime tuning was getting the shoulder thickness correct.
