Completing the Bike - page 5
The illustration shows how the bottle will appear when it is finally mounted on the down tube of the bike. Your down tube is not part of the illustration yet. Rotate the water bottle 61.656 degrees. Plot the line shown in yellow with the straight line pencil tool (F5).
Use the Node Edit (F10) tool to round the line segments approximately as shown.
Apply a contour of 0.08 and 1 step to the line. Make sure that the segments (shown by the yellow asterisk) that must disappear behind the bottle project past the contour thickness.
