Measuring Scale Of A Jug

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I am about to produce a new mixing jug product and I am struggling to calculate the measuring increments in liters and cups.

 

Anyone know where I can find one of these scales and how I can apply it to my design.

 

my measuring jug is show in this post.

Hi Mark

 

Just wondering, what software are you using? If its solidworks these youtube videos might help, with the calculating of

the jug volume. I couldn’t find any video that actually inserts a measuring gauge. That might be a good tutorial for someone to do and

post up on this forum.

Thanks Streamline, the links worked fine and were helpful.

 

I am actually looking for the graphic itself to wrap onto the surface. I might just have to draw it manually.

 

my mixing jug hold 2.3L which is 10 US Cups.

 

ill keep u updated anyway :)

Ok, so I did it.

 

What I did is:

  • Offset the surface of the jug and made it a solid body that was 10 cups in mass
  • Sliced the solid one cup's volume at a time
  • Found the overall length of the profile curve and divided it up.

This took me quite some time as every slice had a different cutting height as you can see in the image.

 

it was a pain in the ass but its done now and my mould maker can handle the rest :)
