Introduction: How to Create a Space Ship
I will be showing how to make a space ship.
-cylinder -torus -spheres -cones. -paraboloid -Wedge.
Step 1: Making the Spaceship Body.
1. Place a sphere on the workplane. Scale it up equally on all axes to 30mm.
-Place a paraboloid and a box on the workplane.
-Make the paraboloid diameter and the height to 30mm. Make the box it into a hole.
- Align both of the box and the paraboloid on the center.
-Move the box up so that it cut a half sphere from the top of the paraboloid. Once the box is in placed group it with the paraboloid.
-Align the combined shape with the sphere. Move the combined shape up so that the base halfway up the sphere and group it.
- place another paraboliod in the workplane and move it above the space ship body. Then align the 2 shapes on the x and y axis.
-Scale the escape pod by a diameter of 10mm and the height as 15mm
Nose cap and divider.
-place a torus on the work plane.
- align the escape pod and the torus from the x and y axis.
-move the torus 63mm up
-place a cone on the workplane and rotate it either on the x or y axis so the pointy part looks down.
-put a paraboliod onto the base of the cone.
- Aline the cone and the paraboliod by the x and y axis.
-Group the 2 shapes together to make the nose cap.
-Aline the escape pod and the nose cap on the x and y axis
-Move the Nose Cap up on the Z axis about 22mm
-scale the nose cap to about 22mm
-change everything to about the same color.
- Make a large circle and move it to the workplane.
-Scale the sphere down so it fits like the image
Step 2: Making the Wings for Your Space Ship
2. Place a sphere on the workplane. Scale it down to 2mm on the Z axis
-Scale the sphere on the Y axis 40mm.
-Rotate the sphere 90 degrees on the X axis.
-Rotate the sphere counter-clockwise on the Y axis 22.5 degrees.
-scale on the X axis until the wing is about 25mm
-align the wing with the space ship body on x and y axis.
-Move the wing on the X axis until it touches the Divider.
-select the wing a duplicate it and move the duplicate around the x axis to the other side of the space ship.
-With the copies Wing selected, choose Adjust>Mirror. Choose the arrows that will mirror the wings along the X axis.
-Move the Wing on the X axis until it touches the Divider. Select both wings and group them together.
-Position the camera so that you are looking down on the spaceship. With the grouped wings select, hold ALT and rotate on the Z axis by 90 degrees. Holding ALT will create a duplicate of the group.
-Select all of the wings and rotate them 45 degrees on the Z axis
Creating wings for the escape pod.
-Select all of the wings made in the last Step. Holding ALT, Move them up on the Z axis about 32mm.
-Holding SHIFT, scale the wings down to 15mm equally.
-Move the Escape Pod wings up on the Z axis until they touch the nose cap.
-Position the camera so that you are looking down on the spaceship. Rotate the Escape Pod wings 45 degrees on the Z axis.
-Place a cylinder on the workplane.
-scale the cylinder's diameter to 10mm by 10mm and 4mm tall.
-duplicate the cylinder and change it into a hole and make sure they are aligned.
-scale the cylinder hole down to 9mm.
-Move the hole cylinder down so that it rests inside the solid cylinder.-
- make a duplicate of the hole cylinder can change the color to orange.
-Group the orange cylinder and hole cylinder together.
-Move the yellow cylinder down into the orange cylinder.
-Make a duplicate of the window and move it off to the side.
-change the color of the of the other window from yellow to black
Adding windows to space ship.
-choose a window and group them together.
-With the grouped window selected, use CTRL+C to copy the window. Then pick the location you want the window to be at using the workplane.
-After the grid turns orange paste a copy of the window.
-make changes or sizes of the windows to your preference and see if it will fit.
Step 4: Building the Legs
-place a cylinder on the workplane and scale the the z axis by 4mm.
-rotate the cylinder by 90 degrees on the y axis.
-rotate the cylinder 45 degrees counter clockwise on the z axis.
-make sure the wings on the space ship is ungrouped
-Align the cylinder to the wing on the right of the door
-align and select the wing to have the cylinder move toward the wing.cen
-center the cylinder on the y and x axis.
-Move the cylinder up 19mm.
-Switch to the workplane tool. Choose a side of the cylinder
-place a wedge on the chosen side
-scale it 2mm on the y axis.
-scale it 8mm on the x axis
-Switch to the Workplane tool and choose the side of the wedge.
-drag the point of the wedge to the ground and the ground is the line where the orange grid turns grey
-change the color of the cylinder and leg and group them together
-move a copy to the other side of the spaceship.
-mirror to flip the leg in the opposite direction.
-With the two legs selected, hold alt to rotate copies 90 degrees on the z axis.
