Evil Genius Enterprise Build

A friend of mine who has recently moved from TrueSpace to Lightwave is tackling the Enterprise and using my tutorial, he goes by the name of Evil Genius 180 or EG180 this is Chris Martin and he has built the USS Enterprise many time’s over the years in his prime 3d modelling program called TrueSpace.

You can follow EG180 build on his Blog he also posts on 3dgladiators and 3dscifi if you want to check them out, one of the points of interest in EG180s build is the upper area of the Primary hull.

Here is some interesting image´s by Chris Martin

Casimiro Build

Original Build

I’m not happy with the upper saucer curve in my Casimiro – built saucer section.
I frequently watch TOS episodes before bed to wind down and this doesn’t look like
what’s on-screen.

Updated Build

The transition from the curve to the smooth surface is much less severe.
So, I needed to fix that.
(Chris Martin)

This does look a lot smoother and less severe!

EG180 aka Chris Martin´s altered primary hull, which is set to the scale I give in the tutorial 1756×424, The spline drawing is correctly positioned so that it will line up with your blueprints.

I will be altering my model in the near future to reflect this update.

Thanks Chris.

I may have said in the tutorial a few times,  Your never really finished a model
This is so true, you can always find a reason to go back and rework something

Of-course in the film or TV world of modelling you don´t have this opportunity,
you need to get it right first time, this is only in the world of the 3D hobbyist
where you can rework at leisure.
