MUG INVERTED HANDLE NEW 2020
by handell Jan. 2020
This mug will end up as a ceramic item and the prototype is just for the feel of the handle.
The rest of the mug will be thicker and have a bottom divot once complete.
The purpose of this shape is be able to direct print onto a 14 oz coffee mug using a rotating UV printer.

Shape usage in Rhino 3d or any 3d app will do.
Using shapes inside shapes, offsetting surface and Boolean functions
Overview and Background
Requires 3d design knowledge
This was created using 2 shapes in Rhino 3d. A cylinder and a torus.
The rest was a bit of savvy boolean operations and offset surface.
Its all about correct placement.
I used a 1 inch sphere to represent my larhgest knuckle to for sure fit.
Version 2 and taper version have not been tested yet.
Lesson Plan and Activity
Start with your desired cylinder
add a torus with some girth to it
Boolean the 2 objects to get basic shape
Offset surface to desired thickness changing direction of surface to point in.
add or extrude a cylinder inside
Boolean the 2 objects to get inside handle fill shape
copy this handle fill area shape only and command Z back to your object
fillet where desired
Rubric and Assessment
Helps develope lnear thinking
it is much easier to acchieve complex shapes by cutting, splitting and dividing into other basic shapes.
