Although I can't do much with environments while shading the Normandie ship hull, I thought others might enjoy seeing what I WAS able to get. Someone once told me I was nuts to try a ship in TC.......

Absolutely incredible work, Ken.

And I still think you were nuts to try a ship in TC ;-)

Amazing, never thought this highly complex shape was possible in TC.
Anything news about file size Ken?

Ha! I bet you thought I forgot, huh Henry? Was it you that sent me the picture of the sunken boat?

Stefaan; the ship is broken into 6 parts, mainly because the 3D printer would only handle 29" long sections. There is a port and starboard bow section, P&S stern, and a lower bow and stern. I split the ship at the waterline so modelers can make either a waterline model or a full hull version. The total length is 36". File size for each of the sections ranges from 45 to 75 MB. The prop is only 500 KB, and the lifeboat and davits are about 6MB.

Thanks for the comments......

Hi Ken, this is spectacular, we all could learn a lot from you. I am new to turboCAD 15 and I'am battleing a bit to do 3D images. I would appreciate it very much if you would consider taking on a student for a while. The thing is I managed to draw all the outlines into the box I created but as soon as I draw the inner detail and try to rotate the drawing all the construction lines and the detail that I've drawn moves outside the box. If you could help me with this I will be very greatfull.
