- Skill level:
Click on the desktop shortcut to start the CINEMA 4D application.
Go to the "Primitives" at the top and click on the "Cube."
Go to the toolbar on the left and click on the "Make Editable" button. Then, click on the "Scale" tool at the top and use the controls that appear around the cube to reshape it to approximate the bottom part of the bottle without the neck.
Click on the "Polygon" selection tool. Go to the cube and click on the top polygon. Select "Structure" from the menu and choose "Extrude Inner." Drag with the mouse to create a slight inner extrusion, leaving the narrower part about the thickness you want for the neck of the bottle.
Use the "Scale" function to make the top polygon square. Then, select "Structure" from the menu and choose "Extrude." Drag with the mouse to make the upper neck of the bottle.
Select all the polygons of the bottle. Select "Structure" from the menu and choose "Knife." Use this tool to create vertical lines, cutting all of the current polygons in half.
Change to the "Point" selection tool and use the "Move" function to reshape the neck polygons to increase the curvature and make the neck round. Save your work.
