First post on here so hello to all. I was just wondering if anyone out there could help me. I work for a glass bottle company. We manufacture glass bottles and jars. Most off our jobs are simple round shaped bottles but we do make some complex shapes. Firstly does anyone out there have much experience with modeling bottles in Solidworks? Secondly I'm trying to model up a square bottle but I haven't been given much information as regards profiles and dimension, just the basic height and width. I have sketched up the side and front profiles however I'm having problems as I need to have the corner profiles in order for the bottle to model up correctly. I was just wondering if there is any way  off getting a true projection off what the corner profile would be. I have tried using Project curve but this does not give me the desired result.
