Experimental investigation into various representations of a bottle of laundry detergent. The bottle was initially measured with a custom measuring tool and the resulting data then transformed in both AutoCAD and Rhino with custom scripts that explored the weaving/lofting of surface geometry. In addition to digital representations, parts of the bottle were also cast in mixtures of rubber and foam. Read Less
