Title: Water Bottle
Post by: Don Cheke on October 12, 2009, 07:05:19 PM
Today I needed a generic bottle for some cooler graphics and so I created the attached bottle in TurboCAD. I was extremely pleased with how quick it came to be and how it required really no post editing - although I did remove the background and add a dropped shadow in Photoshop.

Nice render Don. Just a thought, should the bottom of the bottle have a bit more flat area for stability. Would you please share the method you used to create vertical grooves around the bottle cap.

Again, nicely done.

The bottom didn't matter as the bottle was placed in ice water splashes. See attached.

The cap ribs are just radial copied extruded triangles (one copied block).

Superb modelling as always Don.

I never did figure out how to wrap a label like that.

Messed around with cylindrical wrapping for ages and then gave it up as a bad idea.

It's usually not difficult when you know the tricks, Dave.

Any tips on wrapping a label then?

(Off Topic.   Thanks for the first/third angle symbols. Just finished my first drawing for the works.)

Thanks in advance

It's all difficult for me because I am just starting with TurboCAD. What are the tricks Henry? Or can you direct me to where I can find out.

All help appreciated.

John

John, I've attached an excerpt from my Photorealism in TurboCAD V8 book. Since TCad has changed considerably since it was written, you will find discrepancies between what you read therein and what you see in the Material Editor. Please post questions (or email me directly) if you have difficulty resolving the conflicts.

Be aware that when you wrap an image onto an object, the entire object is covered. Therefore to wrap a label onto a portion of a bottle, for example, the most straightforward approach is to slice that portion away from the rest of the bottle, thus making it a separate object.
