Hi Guys,

Then his book started me on rendering

A propeller sitting there is not much , so add a rudder...........then stem and stern posts with keel and so on until....................

Excellent work Bobich!  I know that was a lot of work; you should feel proud.  -Alvin

Gentlemen,

Thank you for the kind words and support.............and Yes, once you start it's hard to stop each new day brings up another detail to be added, plus I have several more vessels I would hope to model over time.

Nice lines on the hull Bob, and a good job with the rest.

As they say, from small acorns large oaks grow, or something like that!  8)

very nice indeed, like the curves on the hull.

Haha, good work!  It's kinda like going into the store for one thing, and coming out with two bags of groceries!

Did you use lofting to make the hull?

Hi Steve,

No I did not use lofting for the hull, it was developed using a copy of the vessels profile and bodyplan in Delftship Free and then imported into TurboCAD. I am one of those who is unable to get past my perceived limitations of the loft function to create a 3D hull without join lines and/or leak points. Having said that the propeller was lofted in TurboCAD and whilst it is a complex shape the "twist" is one direction in a blade.

Apart from the basic hull form everything else, (keel, sternpost, rudder, rudder post and all the casings, wooden decks, wheelhouse, etc.) was done in TurboCAD using mostly 3D simples with some extrusions and some simple lofts.

Best Regards

Very Nice Job on your boat Bob. It is funny how one can get started on something and then just can't put it down. :) Carroll

Beautiful!
I've been trying to figure out how to create a hull for a while now.  I want to draw a 3D of our boat and just can't quite figure out where to start or create that hull.  Nice to at least see it is possible :)

Again, great job.

Usual method is to loft a series of cross sections. If you're not trying to re-create some complex existing design, you really don't need many sections to make a decent-looking hull.

I think I've been over complicating it.  Thank you.

Hi Guys,

Below is my next add on to a propeller. This one took quite some time and takes quite some time to render!

Wow, that's sure a big step from the first one! Gorgeous. Especially appreciated, now that I've been watching "The Last Ship" on TNT. So much detail, love the fine strutwork on the antennas.
