Are you making the whole ship out of steel, or just the frames?

That's awesome, but how heavy will it be?

Very interesting. I'm watching this one closely as I may do one like this some day.

I'm curious,.. when 3D models are built does the software interpolate stations?


There are a lot of different methods of hull building in 3D. Some use stations (usually referred to as splines) that are then skinned, some merely deform primitive shapes (like a box) into the proper shape.

But you may be onto something. If someone can build the hull in 3D, they may be able to do some reverse engineering and provide more accurate line drawings for you.

I would take on the challenge, but I've got a few too many irons in the fire right now!

If you want to email me what you have in the way of drawings, I'll redraw them in 3d in AutoCAD. By doing it in 3d, it is not difficult to interpolate missing stations. If you notice from my 3d drawings of North Carolina from my thread, you can see basically what I do.
