    I love the effect of the original bulb. created a 3d effect. unless the programmable does better I would stick with it.

    The reason you did not get dots is that you are getting a projection of your light source. You are showing a clear bulb as your light source so you are seeing the filament being projected through each of the holes. The closer you get to a point light source the closer you will get to a dot. Also the farther the light source is from the hole the smaller the projected image will be. If you use more than one light source and at different distances from the holes, as a bunch of Christmas lights, you will have different size projections for each light source. I would try using LED lights and tie them into a tight bundle, trying to make as much of a ball shape as possible, in the center of the ball.
