Custom Beer Bottle

Our laser technician Anthony Kling wanted to create a custom beer bottle made of slip-cast porcelain. The first step was to create a positive for a mold, which we did using the router and stacked sheets of glued-together MDF. Here you can see the final design in EnRoute.

We started with a couple of rough passes using a 1/2" ball nose bit to clear out excess material.

Then we used a 1/4" ball nose at an 85% overlap to create the final smooth finish.

The two halves will be glued together to create the whole positive.
