Airship Tenkuu Shukun by dmaland Airship Tenkuu Shukun by dmaland
This is a project I did on a lark, to see if I could create something that was semi-made to order. (Actually, the order was "aerial battleship" and "lots of guns," so it wasn't super specific.)

Anyway, I got a little inspiration from the pipes for the urinals at my church/ venue (long story), and made this thing.

I'm sure that the name is a terrible mangling of how the Japanese should be constructed. Still...

There are some small mesh errors that shouldn't be a big deal if you don't get in super close. In the same vein, the lettering on the smaller gun turrets is upside down - for some reason, I didn't think that was a problem until I was so far along that fixing it would have undone a lot of work (so I just said, "whatever," and left it).

The zip file contains geometry in the following formats:

Blender 2.49b
Sketchup 7.1
Vue 7.4
OBJ

As well as the texture maps required.

If you're wanting to animate/ pose the model's weapons, getting it rigged up should not be an immense pain (because the discrete parts are separate, and named semi-logically), although it will probably be quite time consuming.

This model took me a while, so credit is definitely appreciated, and so is an opportunity to see your creations.

I think it was about 3 days of work, off and on. I didn't keep track of the hours, though. I didn't get to do as much "straight through" as I wanted, but it came together eventually. :)

Thanks very much!

Sketchup is a design program. It's based on interacting with edges and faces, and, to me, has an excellent interface for doing so. It does have its limitations, of course.

The heavy lifting for the geometry was done in Sketchup. There are a number of plug-ins that I use, like the bevel function of "Round Corners," as well as "Tools On Surface." I also use the LWO exporter, as Collada doesn't play "nice" for me.

I used Inkscape for a lot of texture assembly work.

I also incorporate Blender into my pipeline, as a way to get the model ready for OBJ export, and then to actually make the OBJ export happen. It seems pretty good for that.

The less confusing version is probably this one:

Sketchup for building the parts, and placing them in the correct areas.

Inkscape for making textures to apply in Sketchup.

Blender to take the output from Sketchup, and turn it into OBJ format for Vue.

Hopefully, that's more straightforward.
