Mold-Making CAD Help?

  • Hey, folks ...

    I'm kicking-around an idea for a bottle with a special profile. The profile itself is dead-simple to CAD-ify ---which is great, since I have almost-no CAD skills--- but the complete bottle needs a couple of additional features, such as a flask-like flare and pour-spout, and embossed lettering. I could probably figure out how to CAD-ify that stuff, too, but I suspect that I'd miss some nuances related to how the bottle would get molded. Moreover, since the interior profile is the important aspect of the bottle, I think I'm looking at an injection mold instead of, say, a blow mold, which seems to increase the complexity ... and the need to get all the details right.

    Do any Testers out there have mold-specific CAD experience?
