  The German Masskrug is a mesh model of a German, one liter beer glass filled with a freshly tapped beer, topped by froth.
It can be rendered and used to create computer graphics or a tangible 3-dimensional (3-D) model, using a 3-D printer or other means of computer aided manufacturing (CAM). However, beer glasses not exactly being hard to come by (even original, German ones), it was created primarily with the former in mind and the latter as an abstract option.

Mesh model (sometimes (also, not quite correctly,) referred to as a wire frame model).
Key Features
Simple object(s), ideal for .
Consists of three separate components (glass, beer, and froth), ...
High mesh density (allows creating realistic, high resolution, rendered images and printing 3-D models with a smooth surface)
Includes the sample pictures shown above.
Targeted User Group(s)
Users who create computer graphics and/or videos.
Current Product Status
Development of version 1.0 concluded, but minor improvements to portions of the model are being considered. A sequel to the video(s) is planned (if you've just viewed and/or read all or parts of Videos (Fun Stuff) section, we would like to stress; seriously !).
System Requirements
Rendering or computer aided design (CAD) software, capable of processing (or converting, if necessary) Wavefront object (.obj) and/or STL Mesh (.stl) files.
Computer equipped with a graphics adapter capable of displaying a color depth of 24 bits per pixel (bpp) on an adequately sized screen (a screen with a resolution of at least 1366 x 768 pixels and a 15 inch diagonal is recommended).
A central processing unit (CPU) with multiple cores and/or logical processors, as well as ample main/random access memory (RAM) is highly recommended, particularly if you intend to create high-resolution videos, all the more so, if these include morphed versions of the model(s).
Please note, that it is practically impossible to specify the hardware requirement more precisely, as these depend on for what, and how, you intend to use the model(s). If for example, you merely want to create an icon (e.g. a picture the size of our mesh model icon at the top of the page), and processing times in excess of several minutes for a single, rendered image are not an issue, even 15 year old hardware is probably fully adquate. If, on the other hand you want to create a lengthy, high definition (e.g. HDTV) video clip, in which the model(s) is/are integrated into a complex (virtual) set/scenery, not only the recommended hardware, but a single computer, might prove to be insufficient.
