Re: Enterprise-D 1:1 Scale model, with decks, in Sketchup

That deck one doesn't work. The Ready Room has a window and these plans don't allow for that.

So this is not based on the Rick and Mike drawing set they sell in the black box with all the blue prints.

I dont mind that you have it larger than its drawn out at either. I'd love to see someone someday actually make a set of engineering blueprints that could be used for actual construction of this thing.

It wouldn't be practicle to build without the actual engines and a number of other key systems, but it sure would be interesitng ot have around to look at.

That is a good catch, it is located in the corner across from his fish. He often looks out of it when he is getting his tea. It never occured to me there was an external hallway around the dome, that just seems off.

maybe thats deck 2 coming into contact with deck 1 because of the half-deck. Don't know, i dont have access to my ED right now.

But like the viewscreen you could say its just a fake window, nothing would run counter to that I dont think.

Actually, you can look out of the ready room. The bridge you see here is actually a WIP. The window is there. I'll post pictures of how I did it when I have a chance

Well, the hull near the window has the same shape as the wall in the Ready Room:

I'm doing some things in SketchUp (non-ST related) now, learning it bit by bit... and I never realized it could be that powerful. Inspiration!

I'll be interested to see how you worked that out.

Another thing I have learned using sketchup is to save often to different file names at different stages. This will let you go back to previous saves should you find your self at a dead end and having to "back up" to a certain step or area in the drawing process.
I can second this advice when i first used sketch up i had to scrap a design and start over as i had got myself ito a corner and there was no way out so to speak.

seeing this project gives me a possible idea to deck one of my designs out.

Re: Enterprise-D 1:1 Scale model, with decks, in Sketchup

You can see out the ready room....



This is my "hack" for the ready Room... I made a porch :P I could "cut out" a step around the whole top, but that was more effort than I was willing to give. I was thinking of putting a window around the hole I cut in, but it looked tackier than this solution

I looked at my Enterprise D blueprints and they do not have this problem. Why was it again that you didn't want to use the Rick and Mike Enterprise D blueprints?
