A CAD paradigm is presented to produce blow moulds for Poly Ethylene Terephthalate (PET) bottles decorated with ornamental patterns. This work integrates design and manufacturing of decorated blow moulds which, in turn, are utilized to blow PET bottles. The parametric geometric modeling techniques are employed to customize a CAD system, tailoring to suit the requirements of the bottle making industry with in integrated environment.
