3DWIP LBee spaceship

Spaceship project. In the Star Wars universe, maybe. This is the basic blocks for the ship. Still don't know if the top laser should be on rails or not. First time I do basic block to design a global shape for the ship. I am also trying 3dsmax 2020, so that might not end well, or I will get used to it.

    I have redone the back ailettes and add some trusters. Less round.

    I wasn't able to do the side wings like I wanted. They look really odd with the rest of the ship. So , I decide to put modular sides taken from the main hull.

    Small details. The sides can now slides in. Rework the crease in some places.

    Nice ship. Doesn't really seem Star Wars-y to me, but then neither have some of the ships from the more recent movies.

    What's the little mushroom at the bottom of the last picture?

    Oh that was a gear, partially external to get the wings inside. But that was a concept when ther was wings, with the sliding sides I will design a top/bottom rail instead. But maybe I could use this for something else.

    It strikes me as a little more like a ship from some race that is part of the Federation than Star Wars. Possibly Vulcan. But that's just me. :)

    Well, I don't know much about SW ships. You basically see all types of ships in SW, and that includes the textures.

    Update:
    23f3tuq07q5y.jpg

    Sadly, I did a boolean that pretty much broken the sides. I had to take some hours to repair that and some other things. I am still searching for a self luminance (Glow) texture in 3dsmax. I am on QuickSilver render, and I am wondering if this isn't on Arnold only. I am using Physical material, but not sure if that's ok.

    Arnold is the worst renderer I have ever seen.

    This is with Corona, a real and working renderer. Couldn't get the most recent version but they did a patch for 2020. Seems to work for now. Can't say I am impress with what is coming with the default 3dsmax in terms of rendering. Mental Ray was superior to any of the cr... they put in.

    Less frustrated now.

    While I think ART Renderer is the best bundled render engine in 3ds Max, my weapon of choice for photorealistic rendering is Corona. I think you'll enjoy it. :)

    I am beginning to. I had to redo the sides again and remove the sliding extrudes. I think I am gonna do that in texture.

    Got to go to work, so posting a color test and some work here and there.

    I'm thinking BMW when I look at the front. Not a bad thing, it just makes me think of one.

    I like that panel work so far. Is that a texture?

    Yes. A very simple one. But I want to cut the meshes for panels that will separate colors. Orange and egg white.

    Did the back engine. Trying one dark color into the mix. The symmetry on the main hull seems to mess the smoothing.

    If you have the weld ratio too high or a vert not exactly on plane it will do strange things. If your modeling off the world center least in the left/right you should be able to select the edge loop that is one half or all the verts and align to Z (least if the objects were created from the left or right view, might be on X or y as well (all depends what view you created them in.)
    If it is a floating vert along a edge you wont see it unless the object is collapsed. So sometimes it looks ok in viewport but you render it does odd things. I used to get this a lot in 2013 with subdiv objects, just had to re align it all even though it visually was aligned. Go fig.
