Showcase for me 2nd Nautilus design

I finally completed my Jules Verne “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” Nautilus design, I took some time to think over and finish it.

I also had it printed, A1 size poster and I am well pleased, just need to have it framed, I am loading a small sample and a link to anyone who like to have it, I have recived requests from time to time for this, including in French, Itailan, Russian and I will add Spanish.

One of the most magnificent rooms on the Nautilus is the drawing room/salon/museum, ten meters long, six wide, and five high. This incredible room contained an organ, an art collection of great value and very large number of marine specimens. There was also a fountain made from a shell about two meters across

Artist : Painting and year completed
So being the obsessive chap I can be with some designs, I tried to find artist and painting suggested by Verne, though these painting are in museums collections around the world and are not entombed with the Captain and Nautilus for eternity beneath a volcanic island 
Here is the list of artist and works I used, I tried to keep them all in a time frame that they where collected just before Professor Pierre Aronnax, a French marine biologist and narrator of the story and his faithful servant Conseil and Canadian Ned Land boarded the Nautilus and meeting the mysterious Captain Nemo.

Jules Verne Voyages extraordinaires have found so many fans the world over, I hope my personal vision of the Nautilus is enjoyed half as much as I enjoyed seeing so many other designs out there, a notable mention has to be Harper Goff fantastic design from the 1954 Disney film “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”.

The Nautilus is finished.


Next to do is to see how well it can be 3dprinted next week.

(it cannot be 3dprinted a nightmare)

The Nautilus getting a reworked “Raker”


Nautilus 0012

I debated for a while about introducing the “Raker”. but I feel that it would be useful for protecting the Pilot house a little when ramming ships as it is the Nautilus mission when Professor Arranox first encounters Captain Nemo.

None the less, it is nearing it end (thankfully), it is not easy to design at all. to designers out there that visit this blog (if any).. I take my hat of to you.

Update on the Nautilus


I don’t have much time for 3d at the moment , but I was able to have a day or so to finished of the dreaded Nuts and Bolts around the Hull, this is not fun and I will not be repeating them any-time soon.

Some Figures

Some details of the Nautilus as described by Verne are subject to interpretation and some may have been obscured in translation, but many are clearly stated. The largest portion of the information is found in the chapters titled “The Nautilus” (included in “The Man of the Seas” in incomplete translations), “All by Electricity”, and “Some Figures”. Additional information is scattered throughout the novel. Here’s a summary of the details.

The Nautilus had a cylindrical hull 70 meters long and 8 meters wide. The double hull had tapered ends, as Nemo says to Aronnax, “like your cigar”. (Nemo mentions the shape had already been adopted in London. This was the time of the “cigar ships”.)

The four bladed propeller was six meters in diameter with a pitch of 7.5 meters. When the Nautilus accidentally rammed the Scotia it produced a two-meter triangular hole. There was an ordinary rudder fixed to the stern and two diving planes fastened to the sides at the center of floatation. On the surface the Nautilus remained 90% underwater so its platform was 0.8 meter above the water. The platform had a structure of “medium height” with inclined sides, at each end. Forward was the wheelhouse with a 2-meter-square interior and four windows, nearly a foot thick, through which the pilot could see in all directions. Aft was the powerful light. A recession amidships held the longboat, described later as a rising enough above the deck to sit on. The platform also had a railing. Aronnax gives somewhat conflicting descriptions of the hull, first saying it is clearly metal, not looking like a living beast at all, but later describes the overlapping hull plates as resembling scales or a reptile’s shell.

Verne provides considerable information about the interior, especially the forward end. There was a 7.5-meter air reservoir at the very bow. Moving aft, we find Aronnax’s cabin (2.5 meters long), Nemo’s cabin (five meters long). Next was the drawing room/salon/museum, ten meters long, six wide, and five high. This incredible room contained an organ, an art collection of great value and very large number of marine specimens. There was also a fountain made from a shell about two meters across. Finally, the salon had two large oblong windows protected by sliding panels. Moving aft, the next room was the library (five meters long) with 12,000 volumes, followed by the captain’s dining room (also five meters). Both of these rooms were exquisitely furnished.

There were watertight bulkheads between the dining room and the library and salon and the captain’s cabin.

Near the midpoint of the boat the description becomes less clear. There was a central staircase leading to the deck platform and to the upper passage to the wheelhouse. There was also a ladder to the longboat, and somewhere near was the airlock used for underwater access. The central section had at least one and possibly two watertight bulkheads. The size of this central section is not given.

Moving aft there was a small cabin (two meters long), and the galley (three meters) located between storerooms. Nearby was a bathroom with hot and cold taps. Next was the crew’s berth room (five meters). There was one more watertight bulkhead and then the engine room, described as at least 20 meters long. It had a front part devoted to generating electricity and a rear part with machinery to turn the propeller.

Adding all the figures given accounts for 65 meters of the boat’s total 70-meter length perhaps leaving five meters for the central section.
