havoc92, how big are those hexagons? I'd guess about an inch, more or less.
Actually, they started as a 6 sided ngon with 1.x inch radius. I put the ngon in front of a 2" cube and increased radius until the distance between two flat sides was exactly 2". Didn't write down what the resultant radius was unfortunately. But if you look at the screens in Menagerie part I and gauge distance then count, there are 18 across on what looks like a 36" run. If you do it by height, you end up with 2" as well. so..

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
I can understand why they might tend to get in the way here and there; but, I think they should have left them in where possible. Then again, it's difficult enough to cull detail in scenes without the shadows sometimes; so... ok, never mind rofl. And Thanks

So far this has all been rather fun to model. And I keep learning all sort of things while going bald trying to do so lol. How's your build going. Just was talking about you over at Scifi meshes in the last day or two.

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

A bit slow going on my end as my 3D time is getting squeezed (job and family schedule near the holidays )

Glad you're having fun modeling. Despite the "simple" look of the Enterprise, there are some pretty cool parts to practice new techniques on.

Posted two new videos in the past 24 hours. These are a rehash of things already seen here; but, video update rather than 2d.

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





This is the current piece I'm working on. Waded through a few thousand screen caps and put together only a few really good
images to work from for this piece. It shows up in many of the episodes; but, blurred or at a distance. So a lot of this has been
eyeballed until I can barely see straight. It still needs a little work; but, nearly finished with it. No smoothing as yet.

Good Googli-Moo! Wowzers, that's one complicated monster of a detail. Excellant work!

Nice going havoc92 And it's a good thing that it is mounted on a rectangular plate making it pretty straight-forward to camera match it if you wanted to.

And another of the primary plant on units that we see everywhere in the series. This still needs cut down a little; but, mostly done.

Blssdwlf, I'd die for some straight ortho shots after the last several of these.

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



This is a render of the previous piece - now finished.



The above is another plant on that is seen in sickbay and engineering. To the left is a wip of another screen. I built it in three pieces - center, edge and corner.
This is another highres prototype that will help me figure out both the low res and the texturing.

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

Still plugging away.



Freestanding version that appears in Sickbay and engineering..



And the wall mounted version seen in the corridors.

And I'm off to bed.. again.

LOL

@Saquist - All of them I think those wall props were re-used on everything. Definitely plenty of redundancy on the ship
