    Select the Front Plane in the feature tree (menu at the left side) and create a
    sketch by clicking on the 2D Sketch icon

    The display changes so the Front plane faces you.

    Select ‘’Full image’’ in the Transparency tab and change the transparency into 0.50

    Click OK ok How to Model a Bodum Glass in SolidWorks?

    Click at the Sketch button in the upper right corner close the 2D Sketch

  4. Step 4:

    Create another 2D sketch

    Select the Front Plane again and create another sketch by clicking on the 2D Sketch icon

    Draw two centerlines

    Go to Tools > Sketch Entities > Centerline or click at the Centerline icon
    Draw a vertical centerline that starts at the origin.

    Change the length of the line into 61 mm by clicking at the dimension button
    Draw a horizontal centerline that starts at the upper endpoint of the vertical centerline

    Change the length of the line into 26 mm by clicking at the dimension button

  5. Step 5:

    Draw three solid lines

    Go to Tools > Sketch Entities > Line or click at the Line icon

    Draw the three lines as shown in the picture

    Change the lengths of the lines by clicking at the dimension button

  6. Step 6:

    Draw a spline without midpoints

    Go to Tools > Sketch Entities > Spline or click at the Spline icon

    Draw a spline as shown in the picture without a midpoint

    Right mouse button > Select

  7. Step 7:

    Change the curve of the Spline like the picture

    Click at the Top point of the spline > The grey arrows of the Spline appear

    Click and drag the round endpoint of the grey arrow as shown in the picture (the orange dot)

  8. Step 8:

    Click at the Lower point of the spline > The grey arrows of the Spline appear

    Click and drag the round endpoint of the grey arrow as shown in the picture (the orange dot)

    Try to create the curve of the glass as shown in the picture

  9. Step 9:

    Draw a second spline without midpoints

    Go to Tools > Sketch Entities > Spline or click at the Spline icon

    Draw a spline as shown in the picture without a midpoint

  11. Step 11:

    Click at the Lower point of the spline > The grey arrows of the Spline appear

    Click and drag the round endpoint of the grey arrow as shown in the picture (the orange dot)

    Try to create the curve of the glass as shown in the picture

    Add a tangency relation add the end of the spline

    Click at the orange dot as shown in the picture

    Select the Horizontal relation in the Spline menu bar at the left side

    The endpoint of the spline is fully tangent now

  12. Step 12:
