I work in Autocad drafting programs. I'm not familiar with the 3D programs like the one you are using. Are objects dimensioned with units like feet and inches or do you just "eyeball" things? If there are precise dimensions, then I could tell if the benches were right but just eyballing them, they look to be within acceptable limits.
I use AutoCad LT on my home computer. It is a 2D version of AutoCad without a lot of the bells and whistles. I can plot my 2D drawings on paper or in image formats like PDF or jpeg. I'm not sure how the term "render" applies to a 2D drafting program.
The steel plate was an access plate to the steering engine below. Plans specify it as "checkered steel". This is a common type of steel plate where there will be foot traffic. I'm sure you've seen this kind of plate before. Below is an image of the raised checker pattern.
Nicklas, that is beautiful work you are doing, it looks fantastic! May I ask what program you're modeling with?
Sadly I don't know enough about the technical aspect to comment on accuracy, but I'd recommend you remove one of the "P's" from the sign on the stern seen in Pic #2 from your Aug 8 post - it's "Triple", not "Tripple".
I'll look forward to seeing more renders, keep up the good work!
The process of asking questions one by one on basic subjects is liable to take you quite a long time. I would like to suggest "Titanic: A Modelmakers Manual" by Peter Davies-Garner. It will answer a whole lot of these questions for you at a very reasonable price. If you want incredible detail on the subject I would suggest "Titanic: The Ship Magnificent" by Beveridge. It is more expensive but will have more answers than you even have questions. I'm not saying don't ask questions here. I'm just saying there's an easier and more accurate way. Good luck.
Hi Harry, and Hi Bob !
- Harry, i use 3d max 09 and then the free anim8or. from anim8or.com a great and easy modeling software, simple and less confusing.
thank you for your comment ! and thanks for the correction. I must have bin way tired when i did the sign haha, but, it's fixed. and i'll post some new renders this week.
Bob- i'll definitely get hold of both of the ship magnificent books. And thank you so much for you help, as usual
hi, here's just another shot of the progress, i know there's a lot of things to fix, such as texture, structure etc, but, i'm still at the beginning, so it'll get fixed. i just ordered the two titanic ship magnificent books. so it'll be way better when i get them.
I don't know if this is more detail than you were considering, but here's a picture of the Queen Mary's fantail rope scuttle. It's about the same size as Titanic's, and I used it as a model for the scuttle on my own plans.
