Beer Bottle Master Mold Project

I started this in the spring of 2020. I want to create a ceramic beer bottle to commemorate those made by the Medalta Potteries here in the early part of the 20th century. This is challenging because of the need to fit the swing top stoppers. And because the model and molds are too big for me to print. But I will overcome these obstacles one at a time and report here.

This is Fusion 360. The profile was drawn and various measurements parameterized. This makes it it possible to change many aspects of the geometry of this shape by just editing numbers.
