It seems plain that they worked out a ml for each glass type then filled them to that level as best they could. Then you only need to work out 12 glasses, possibly 24 if you need different values for the outside ones.

That was my thought too. They only used a couple of syles of glasses, so figuring out the notes would be pretty easy and straight forward.

Still, an impressive feat.

Okay, they've proven the concept with a scale model. Now go full size!
