Re: NCC-1701 USS Enterprise Deck by Deck - WIP

Mytran, Yeppers. And Gebirg, it appears that those mounted panels may actually be pullouts. I always kinda figured these were just a form of wall art to break up the spaces and inject some color into the visual diet instead of just vast swaths of grey. That seems to be correct in that they have no obvious functional parts.
And a look at a busy box from the Defiant (Enterprise final season)
shows one of these panels with just such a plant on unit ...



And CDR6, Thank you. I've got a tad over 2 years invested in spare time at this point. Still going..


Finally..

Been a busy bee today.. as per usual.
So, how's about a closeup and we'll pull out a little ...







And a little rotation ..


Still basic. The Conference table needs the computer, monitor, button sets and
data cartridge slots added; But, given the amount of work that went into getting
accurate measurements for the table.. a good day's effort IMHO.

Time for some sleep!

Fascinating havoc92. I haven't gotten to the point of making conference room parts yet but I'm curious on how you measured out the table. (If it's a source that can save me time...)

That looks suspiciously like the wall-mounted corridor machinery!

Mr. Scott's guide to the Enterprise. There's a drawing of it in there with a rough measure guide in feet (for once). Overall length comes to about 11.75 ft. Some of the measures aren't that clear; so, I used some geometry skills to pin down the tricky spots. But that's my best ref so far.

And here's an update:

A little more progress on the conference table..





There is next to nothing out there in way of schematics for much of the equipment; so, a lot of this is being done
with guesswork and the like. It's a little maddening; but, getting there..

Re: NCC-1701 USS Enterprise Deck by Deck - WIP



Just some fixups and color testing.. The coms and chairs are bugging me. The color on both seems off; so, I'm still playing with those. The main thing fixed here is the color on the switch blocks and the size of the comm units. The monitor still needs addressing; but, I'm still working that problem.

Re: NCC-1701 USS Enterprise Deck by Deck - WIP

More adjustments here. The mapping for the comms and switchblocks in the prints don't match what's seen in the show, so I played some geometry tricks and figured on an 8 inch inset from the table edge. I also did some work to the colors for the display and added reflectivity to the table top. Really makes it pop; but, boy does the render time go up.





Almost looks like you could walk in and sit down. Lovin it.

Re: NCC-1701 USS Enterprise Deck by Deck - WIP

Here's another render. Mods have been made to the comms, additions to the library computer and a change to the lighting.
I was using a blue omni and a white. Switched to two Blue omnis and really liking the difference.

More detail added to the library computer.





Still have to chamfer some edges and worry about textures; but, ..

..ok, the cutins for the data drives are all in place. The last remaining thing is to texture the comm grills and the graphics for the library computer.

Re: NCC-1701 USS Enterprise Deck by Deck - WIP

Thanks, LS.

More toys. These are the computer cabinets that are seen many times around the ship. There are four that I'm aware of.
The fourth is the same as one of these but with an openable upper compartment.









Really enjoying working on props at this point. Lots of work; but,
a lot faster results than building a mountain lol.

Re: NCC-1701 USS Enterprise Deck by Deck - WIP

Hehe those were fun to model. I did find the hexagon mesh shadow distracting and found that the TOS production crew had interesting ways of not having those show up Good work havoc92

Re: NCC-1701 USS Enterprise Deck by Deck - WIP

havoc92, how big are those hexagons? I'd guess about an inch, more or less.

From experimenting, soft overhead lighting and/or directed lighting to send the shadow away where it wasn't too distracting. If you look real hard you can spot soft hexagons cast on objects or walls immediately next to it but rarely would you see the hexagons more than a couple of feet away. If you were to try and build interior lighting at where you think they would be on a starship, those hexagon shadows would be everywhere IMHO
