Tom's POVRay Water Bottle

About this Object

This is a water bottle of the kind used by cyclists, that fits into the bike's water bottle cage. The nozzle on top has a hole in it, not shown in this view.


The bottle is centered on the y axis, with the bottom at Y=0. The water bottle is 2.9 units in diameter, and is 8.27 units to the tip of the nozzle. The units correspond to inches in the real object.

Problems and Future Work

The neck/bottle joint looks off. The object can not easily have it's lid opened (and it isn't hollow). Also, the nozzle can not be easily pushed down to the closed position, and if it were, the red piece of plastic that should be flush with the top of the nozzle hole isn't there. The underside is not completed.
