Absolutely beautiful!!

seems it will be unnecessarily expensive. and not accurate... do barrels have that much rifling?

My good friend, WALDO, who's filthy rich, :laughing:,
"Just a question on the shot glasses - do you know
that there's 1.5 ounces or 1 ounce per each glass?
Are the dimensions similar to a regular shot glass? ..."

http://shpws.me/hvbz

Now, the bounding box of the "shot glass" above is:
Cm: 10.0 w x 6.4 d x 7.0 h
Its Capacity Volume = 115335.64 cubic millimeters

WILL ANYONE ANSWER WALDO'S 3 QUESTIONS?
1. What is the capacity of the existing model, in fluid ounces?
2. What's the bounding boxes for the same "shot glass", but
with capacities of 1 ounce and 1.5 ounces?
3. What's the cost for the ceramics material, for 1 ounce
and 1.5 ounces capacities?

Thank you, all, very much

Someone involved in this must be a teacher of engineering.
1.5 ounces per a shot in the US. If you had the model, selecting the inner faces of the glass then closing the top and bottom would give the volume. Using the correct scale factor the glasses dimensions could be scaled, for a 1oz to a 1.5 oz. Slightly different sizes, for the different interior volumes.
As for the dimensions, he wants a funky modeled glass, as long as he gets the right amount of booze for each model, he should be happy, lololol.

ok...
it looks like it all depends where you are...
in the US-
1 cu. meter is = 33814.0227 fluid oz.
in the UK
1 cu. meter is = 35195.0797 fluid oz.

this is all per my handy dandy unit converter android app.

as to the volume of the glass that you got there i would manually estimate what you have there. assuming that the rifling is equal in both directions, the peaks and vallies are the same the you can average out the 2 distances for the radius of the cylinder. then it is a matter of geometry...

pi*r^2*h

and then use the conversion listed for your type.

I still would make use of the measurement panel addon in Blender especially since it can measure volume now. Less nasty math involved. Select outer area/select inverse/separate mesh/fill the open end, run a volume measurement.

8. christopherlowe New Member
i hadn't thought of that... but wouldn't it be easier to get the volume of the cup then fill the top and get the volume of the whole thing then subtract...

9. Fredd New Member
Either way, same results. Opresco, tell Waldo he owes me and Chris \$10 for technical advice, lololols. Each and you do not get a cut.

Volume Madness III(i.e Shakes fist at Waldo)

1. 3.89962 US fluid ounces = the original models Capacity Volume 115335.64mm*3 (cubic
root= 48.6767mm) Bounding box dimensions = CM: 10wx6.4dx7.0h
2. 1 US fluid ounce = 29573.53 mm*3(cubic root=30.92438mm)
3. 1.5 US fluid ounce= 44360.29 mm*3(cubic root=35.39958mm)
So the Scale factor for the original object to the 1 ounce size is 30.9248/48.6767 =.635301
From original model to the 1.5 ounce size its 35.39958/48.6767 = .72723
4. Using the scale factor
Bounding box dimensions should be for the 1 ounce glass CM: 6.35wx4.06592dx4.447107 h
for the 1.5 ounce glass CM: 7.2723hx4.654272dx5.09061h

A. Capacity of original model = 3.89962 US fluid ounces
B. Bounding box of 1 ounce model = CM: 6.35wx4.06592dx4.447107 h
C. Bounding box of 1.5 ounce model = CM: 7.2723hx4.654272dx5.09061h
D. For the price of each glass the cost depends on the area surface of the model as is well known.
So using the scale factors above, create a 1 ounce and a 1.5 model, determine the entire surface area for each one, then calculate the price by
multiplying the surface area by SW's cost per cm*2
Sorry, I could not determine the surface area for each new models

Dear Fredd,

It looks that the most important piece of data evaded you :laughing:

and take a good look of this picture:

I just checked up with Waldo
He thanks you all very much; but despite the fact that
he's filthy rich, he's not willing to part with any portion
of his fortune â€“ for your consultation
