Well, beer foam that is

Yup, I got to model beer foam a few weeks past for a job. They sent me a picture, and a plastic glass and said "make it look kinda like this, and fit on to the glass"
I had to model up the part, and the mold. Unfortunately, the cheaped out, and had the sprue right in the center of the part. Otherwise it turned out BEAUTIFUL.
Thanks to VX and their morphing functions, this was an EASY job.

rendering of the part.

Hi Steve


Looks like an excellent job to me, and an interesting subject from many angles. Is this an "anti-spiking" product? Would your customer fancy being featured in a VX International Press Release?

Honestly, it's the top of a motorized beer tapper.

I will ask the customer if he wouldn't mind the publicity.
