Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

No new WIPs tonight. I spent most of the day trying to clean up and stitch together all the pieces on the underside of the primary hull and I'm still not finished. I could run a couple of renders but they wouldn't really look any different from the last ones.

I'm off tomorrow for Memorial Day and hopefully I will get a chance to finish the cleanup so I can cut in the lower gridlines, but at this point I'd say it's about 50/50 that any new WIPs will get posted before Tuesday or Wednesday.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

Well, it's not particularly eye-catching, but here are some wireframes to show a little bit of what I'm working on to try to patch together the various pieces of the aft and lower primary hull:







Basically, I'm cleaning up and optimizing the meshes as I go, then meticulously aligning the edges, matching the number of segments, etc, one vertex and/or edge loop at a time in some cases. I have to carve out the overlapping polygons and eventually weld the pieces together into a contiguous whole.

The last rendering shows all the stuff in yellow, which has more or less been completed, and the parts in teal, which are still very much a work in progress. Eventually the teal, yellow, purple and blue will all be welded together into a single piece. Then I can start cutting in the lower gridlines and other details.

I'm hoping to finish the clean-up by Friday-ish and then start making progress on the gridlines over the weekend.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

Still working on clean-up before proceeding to the lower gridlines. I have managed to align pretty much all of the geometry between parts and am now just working through them to optimize and reduce poly count.




Further updates will be a bit sketchy over the next couple of weeks. I will try to post them when I can but I'm going to be VERY busy with some major work being done on my house through the end of next week.

Stay tuned.

Probably nothing too noticeable but progress nonetheless.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

Just to clarify, I'm still tightening up the parts and pieces on the underside of the primary hull. Progress has been slow with holidays, birthdays, work stuff and ramped-up remodeling work on my house, but I expect to have considerably more free time after Father's Day to really push things along.

She is coming along nicely. Will this be used in some fan film project?
