Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

It's still interesting how much space the ship design fails to use.

Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

You may be surprised - if I recall, the deck plans that CTM is using has much of the empty space between hallways and decks used by tween-deck Jeffries Tubes, wire trains, ODN power conduits and water/matter tanks. Not really much unused space at all - just not all entirely represented in this particular effort. If it was, it would likely crash any 64-bit system commercially available.

Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

It's not the between decks spaces it's the between hull and living spaces.
When I was here last time I was contemplating does the WIP represent where the Structural support beams, girders an Keels would be.

I guess I was contemplating doing someithing like this with my own starship.
This is really just a fascinating endeavor. I need to by the TNG tech manual. So many projects though...it's nice just to watch someone accomplish there goals for a change.

i was working on a construction profile of that sort myself, my biggest pet peeve was always that concave lower portion of the saucer... it may be an iconic portion of the ship, but as a designer i always saw it as a gigantic waste of space!

i was already deep into my own project when i discovered CTM's endeavour. and decided to put mine on hold and see how his turned out first...

on that note, Its looking great! glad to see you're back into this beast!!!

Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

I was considering tackling the Defiant or my ship the Enigma.
Defiant would be easier but Enigma would be more...rewarding.

I stopped on my ship to see how this has turned out. I'm waiting to exhale on this one. It's amazing when he puts up those full renders...

Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

I don't mean to let this project languish, however life has taken a priority. I leaving on Christmas Vacation in a matter of hours, so there won't be anything new until into the New Year.

For those of you who are waiting on starting/continuing your ships, please don't. Incorporate what lessons you will from my work, but do not stop your own. I didn't wait for CLB to finish his TOS project, don't wait for me to finish my TMP project. Work along side, dig into the problems. That's what the real fun is anyway.

Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

No need to worry, just lots of family and work stuff for the past month. Had an evening meeting canceled tonight, so I might just get to work on it tonight. I've also been letting my subconscious work on the engineering problem of fitting the "bump" contours onto the top of the saucer.
I figure that once I've crossed that hurdle, I can finish the saucer in a few sessions.

Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

Ok. Got some preliminary process on C-deck and the crown of B-deck. This is by no means complete, but the forward (circular) part of the "bump" is roughed in. The remainder of the teardrop shape is going to take a great deal of work.

every time i've modeled it in CAD i remember that shape always gave me far too much grief as well, each time for different reasons! hah! it looks like a simple shape, but what "looks correct" and what is "accurate" always come out in such different contrast

however, keep up the good work! always eager to see progress on this one!

Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

I will probably never be happy with it. It's such a sculpted shape that finding the metrics to generate it is going to give me fits for quite a while.
