    @BK613 @StarCruiser - thanks for the references :techman: Yep looks just like the 3424 with maybe a different flap. I'm probably going to tweak the buttons to match them better but probably not go beyond that since the overall geometry is pretty close.

    I thought so too but I could never get a good match on one though. The ends seem too wide compared to the one on the set but I'll try again when I switch to Kirk's conference room. Below is a top view of the Burke tables from one of their brochures ranging from 6' to 24' tables.

    Texturing of the briefing room controller from "The Cage". Definitely need to work on that table and monitor geometry next.

    Until I read some older posts at this site about this "device", I just assumed it was something built specifically for the pilot. But just as we may smirk or roll our eyes upon seeing an easily recognized item minimally redressed for some current or "recent" movie or TV production (this counts "streaming"), I bet some office employees in 1966 saw this prop and said, "Aww, come on, really? That's an intercom system! We use the same model at work!"

    Remember all the scorn that the new Picard series got when they represented a replicator with an off-the-peg 3D printer?
    Now we know it was just a homage to The Cage! :hugegrin: :guffaw:

    The OG before The Original Scientists! :D

    LOL, yeah. Saving on the props budget by re-purposing other stuff seems to be a time-honored tradition :) Of course nowadays looking at it I could imagine it having other functions.:angel:

    One more render. This time I've discovered "Rounded Edges" and how to use them in Octane. It's subtle but saves me from having to model in more geometry. I do wish that there was more documentation on how Octane works for Lightwave.

    Now to make a better table...

    Switching to the "Where No Man Has Gone Before" conference/briefing room. Getting a much better angle on the conference table and I can see that I didn't get the curve wide enough.

    After doing another eyeballing camera match from a second angle I believe I have the proper shape of this boat-style conference table. It's approximately 10' long.

    And now renders with the improved table back in "The Cage" set :) The black inset/groove? is larger on the actual table but I'm okay with what I've modeled so far and probably won't go back and tweak it.

    I have seen similar CB phones.
    No cell bill!

    I used to have a stereo with a joystick that controled a dot on what looked like a radar display—for speakers though.

    I like the 3 exits, makes the room very accessible!

    On the WNMHGB set I spent a few minutes lining up the ceiling disk and it seems like the outer ring was raised a few inches compared to the center ring/tube and the angled struts were re-positioned. I'll post some updated renders when I re-color the set.

    I'm taking a break from the interiors and dusting off my Enterprise model. The model has some adjustments based on new high-res imagery that I recently found online. The Smithsonian has this pretty awesome image of Linwood Dunn filming the Enterprise model. I had seen low-res version before but was amazed to find some high resolution versions. :D

    Same here. If you look at the original photo, the two supports are being used on a later version of the Enterprise (Season 1 or later). Maybe it was discovered that the model needed additional support later on? https://airandspace.si.edu/multimedia-gallery/426072299jpg

    This is looking great, @blssdwlf! I've been quite absent from the forums in the last couple of months but I like stopping in to see what you're up to!

    Thanks Donny! I was thinking of you too. I've like only gone thru about a third of your threads since last year and saw how much you've done and am just in awe :techman::techman::techman:

    I hope you're doing well :beer:
