    If you are in lw 2019 - you can use OpenVDB Evaluator tool to get the necessary shape by mixing various objects. Or you can download a model of a threaded bolt and try to modify it to make such a bottle.

    Check out the free video training here: https://pixelandpoly.com/video.html

    There's even a specific video about threads but all of them give a good foundation to subpatch modeling.

    Also, if that's your CAD model there, it could be exported to a mesh (OBJ, FBX) from whatever CAD program was used to generate this. There's no need to reinvent the wheel, or the bottle.

    I made this a while back. Very similar to your desired shape. Hopefully the polyflow here can give you a heads up on how to go about it.

    There is no Right or Wrong way to model it so you can do numerous of techniques/tools in LWModeler to achieve this.

    Here is one Quick tutorial how I did it

    Looks good bracki7!

    It's one of those things that is difficult when you start, but as soon as someone shows you a few methods it makes it look easy.
    Just takes practice... and it sounds like you're on the right track. Keep trying different methods and see which you prefer

    Nice videos guys!

    If you need to get some threads for the top of the bottle, I would say the easiest way now in LW, is to use QuickBolt in the Create tab under primitives. Make a bolt with threads, then copy/paste and alter a section of threads as needed.

    No problem. It looks good. It might not be exactly what you want but think about where you were and where you are now.

    Cheers!

    You could also start with a box with a radius value, maybe also radius segments.
