Description of this tutor:
In this video tutor I combine NURBS fuction in 3ds max and use the npower power NURBS plugin to perform some task during modeling this PET bottle. I take advange of the "Xcurve" function in power NURBS to make the wave pattern of this bottle. For the bottom of this bottle, I use the powerbollean to cut out the shape and fillet the it.
It seems that npower power NURBS has bug, so I am stick with default NURBS in 3ds max, until some task can not be done by default NURBS.
Tips: the cut out the shape of wave pattern, better check the "cap" fuction after you revolve the cure for the middle part of the bottle.
