Defiant Bridge - Sketchup...

Been teaching myself Google Sketchup over the last few days so made a start modelling the Defiant bridge, so far so good really. A lot of this is guess work, as I cant find any exact dimensions for the set but I think I'm pretty close. Just working off as many photos of it as I can really. I'll keep updating as I go...

Re: Defiant Bridge - Sketchup...

The console section is coming together now. The blue cushioning round the edges is proving a pain though, I may come back to that.

Oh dude- you should copy photo textures from the defiant bridge and use that in your SU!!! That would be sweet. You can have all the panels too!

Re: Defiant Bridge - Sketchup...

thanks guys, really appreciate the feedback. I'm hitting the difficult bit now, curved surfaces! Cutting the lighting ports out of the curves section round the ceiling is going to be a nightmare I can tell, I've started drawing it, but skectup wont extrude from curved surfaces at all so not sure how I'm going to handle that one, watch this space.

Re: Defiant Bridge - Sketchup...

I've not updated this thread in a little while but I've still been beavering away at it. I'm having to re-do a lot of the ceiling sections, hence them being gone at the moment. Here's where I am so far...
