Nearing the end, closer and happier with the new detail, hand on heart I cannot say its worth the time but, carrying on here are the latest test renders..

Concept Design: Nautilus Rebuild 2: “Nautilus Redo”

New rivets and oblong window on the Nautilus, taking cue’s from the illustrations by Alphonse de Neuville and Édouard Riou for the novel.  I was not intending to rework the exterior, but what can I say, I am a fan.

Concept Design: Nautilus Rebuild 1: “Reworking Interior Plan”

Reworking Interior Plan


Reworking the forward section of the Nautilus, I added a forward hatch just behind the wheelhouse, I was never happy with the cut I made through the upper section of the Salon.

With the cut gone and only having one entrance, finding Nemo would descend the steps turning aft and travelling back through a short corridor and the a stairwell, heading down to the main deck (2) (there are 3 levels) then turning forward walking through the dining room, library, salon and right hatch through the corridor to the next stairwell to the wheelhouse. So I decided to add a second one 

I am also thinking of adding oblong windows to the Salon removing the current setup.

Its fun but time consuming working out these details..

Concept Design: Jules Verne’s Nautilus 10 “Nautilus Layout”

“Nautilus Internal Layout”

Here you are my friends the last working I did for the Nautilus


It is the last, I don’t want to explore this any more, but for fellow readers of Aronnax and Conseil odyssey under the sea’s with the irascible Ned Land and the mysterious Captain Nemo, this is the design I now imagine, as much as I love Harper Goff’s Disney design.


The Nautilus is described as having a cylindrical hull 70 meters long and 8 meters in diameter, which I have indicated with this outline, and I could just about fit all the internal settings as described by Jules Verne on one level (the mid section), that could house the cabins of Professor Aronnax (2.5 meters long) which would have room for a simple bunk, writing deck, chair wardrobe and adjoining W.C with show, working back then to Captain Nemo larger room (5 meters long) with a work area and W.C. that could contain a bath.

Moving back we have the salon (10 meters long) with the large portholes for viewing the undersea world, this room doubles for museum, that has art and marine collection of some significant value, next is a dining room (5 meters long) of some elegance and adjoining that is the Library (5 meters long) containing 12,000 books.

We are now at the midpoint of the submarine where you will find a spiral staircase connecting 3 level the size of this central section is not given this area connects to other smaller rooms that house the galley & some storage rooms, where I have placed our other two passengers Ned Land and Conseil as they travel 20,000 leagues under the sea’s, moving further back we have a large W.C or bathhouse for the crew which I have estimated at 12 men can bunk comfortably. Then there is the batteries and engine machine area

Redesigned the Propeller


I redesigned the propeller as I thought after looking at the one I originally made just looked wrong, so I looked around the web and thought the SS Great Britain (1845) propeller is a good place to work from as the novel is based in 1866.

Nautilus Version 2 Completed


This is my latest post with this model in WIP or Work in Progress stage and the UV map is done to my satisfaction. “UV mapping is the 3D modeling process of making a 2D image representation of a 3D model’s surface”.

At last I have completed the texturing of the Nautilus and its UV-mapped too, while I am still in the process of understanding it I am happy with the result

The Nautilus is finished.


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

(it cannot be 3dprinted a nightmare)
