Re: NOW a January Challenge Entry - Ptrope

Actually, Ptrope built upon ALT1701's mesh, outright replacing something like 40 percent of the original geometry and then scratch building all his additions. And, hopefully anticipating one of your questions, ALT1701 is cool with what Ptrope has done with his model.

As for sharing it? Several of us 3D hobbyists have been askiing he do so before he suffers another disk crash. (I think he's experienced three since he started this project.)

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: NOW a January Challenge Entry - Ptrope

Ladies and gentlemen, my publicist is absolutely correct . Yes, this started out with alt1701's Engineering set (which Redfern has, in fact, rendered quite beautifully, several times!), in much the same way I started with Sean Robertson's 1701 bridge model to create the one I currently offer (I think the only things I didn't remodel on that were the hundreds of buttons! ). I get obsessed with adding detail to these things, which usually means using them as templates and then building many new components in their place.

Eventually, yes, the '4th season' Engineering set will be released into the wild; I was lucky enough that I didn't lose the most recent work I'd done to it (one of the advantages of Poser, too, is that by default, a scene contains the geometry of the models used in it, esp. when they're imported from raw OBJs, and I render nearly everything I do in Poser ). This version, however, probably won't show up, since it's really just kind of a 'sketch,' intended almost exclusively for this month's challenge (although I'm thinking about maybe visiting some of the concepts in an Engineering space for my Crossbow-class ship design ).

My modeling software is the spline/patch based Animation Master from Hash, which doesn't convert well to Poser. And most of my images with your sets can't be posted here as often the ladies are in various states of undressed.
