Keep up the hard work havoc92

I also did a full beam instead of I-beams. I figured these columns should be more like the support columns at the base of a building - hollow core and thick walls. But I also imagine that a lot is going to rest in the nature of the materials used. These are going to be alloys that like a samurai blade allow for a mix of rigidity and flexibility.

...

It turns out that I-beams, regardless of material used, will always be stronger than "solid" beams. I have to get back to work so I don't have time to discuss all the reasons why, but to sum it up, the mass of a solid structure works against its loadbearing ability especially when we're talking about torque. For example, a solid rod bends much more easily than a hollow tube made of the same material. It's more than simply a mass savings to use I-beams; they are structurally superior due to the way the shape physically works, no matter what sort of material the form is made of.

Otherwise, great project, I really like how things are shaping up!

Thank you. And you'll note that I said I used hollow core beams Same thing as used in the base of skyscrapers.

OOPS! That's what I get for typing replies during a rapidly diminishing lunch break. Looks like you have it all in order. Carry on.

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

The latest.. Been under the weather for a few days and got back in the saddle this afternoon for a bit..





These aren't final. I needed to do something a little different to change things up a bit. So, I decided to start by playing with some furniture.
The chairs are based on the drawings in the Tech manual. After reviewing some screencaps, I'm a little cheesed that they differ from what's in
the show; but..

The tables were slapped together in about 15 minutes. The res needs bumped a little here and there; but, otherwise I was quite pleased with them.

Chess Anyone?







Just finished this morning on this little project.. 2 days worth of work. Not bad I guess. The Knight was a bear and still kinda sucks.
And the support arm for the chessboard is giving me a few fits; but, overall, very happy with this batch.

Ok, off for smokes.

That looks suspiciously like the wall-mounted corridor machinery!

It does indeed!

Are you also going to have that bizarro wall-mounted-pipe-cap-end-thingy-propped-up-by-a-piece-of-trapezoid-shaped-plywood (TM)?

Havoc, some really nice work going on here! ( Thank you for sharing all the good stuff with us). What with one thing and another, how much time have you put in on the project, thus far?

Regards,
Chuck
