Enterprise-D by David Metlesits - Blender conversion

Hello All,

I submit this proposal for anyone to download and open in Blender.

This is a conversion of the mesh published by David "KnightRider" Metlesits on 2011 on http://www.trekmeshes.ch

My work was to convert the model to Blender; I added some lights to the deflector dish, some lights representing the illumination of the nacelles on the hull, and some postprocessing regarding them; you may either use indirect lighting or the provided lights in your renders.

Please make sure to credit David in your work, as he is 100% the author of this superb mesh.

You might consider adding this as a conversion at http://www.trekmeshes.ch/meshes/meshesd ... DMETLESITS

Please download the package from https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1FxL8Q ... sp=sharing

Enterprise-D by David Metlesits - Blender updates

Postby facorread » Fri Nov 07, 2014 7:16 am

Hello All,

I hope you have enjoyed the Blender conversion of this great Enterprise-D model. After these months I took some time to improve it:

  • Aztec-paneling had been lost in conversion, I have restored David's textures to their rightful place.
  • Bump maps improve the paneled appeareance of the model. You will have to tune their geometry in order to make the most of them.
  • Slightly deformed the bottom of the pylons to solve a Z-figthing problem at the back of the bottom secondary hull.
  • Slightly deformed the saucer rim to correct a Z-figthing problem next to the impulse engines.
  • Improved the shading in all meshes of the model; this should be most apparent in close-up renders.
  • The main shuttlebay door now has a dark registration number, as well as yellow markings inspired in the studio models.
  • Red stripes have been placed on the neck rib.

You might consider updating the Blender link at the Enterprise-D page.

Please download the updated package from Dropbox.

I submitted a couple pictures to the public gallery, but they lacked some of these improvements, would you be so kind to remove them? Thanks!
