View Full Version : Cockpit

Hi I recently asked about how to blow up this one spaceship, and now I've got another question.
This Cockpit:
Is all glass, and I want to put in kind of a roll cage-
Ah! got it! (lost my train of thought.)
The glass isn't supposed to be glued together, but connected by a metal frame. How can I make one?:help:

What are you asking? How to make a roll cage or the windows?

You could grab the polys that make up the cockpit and bevel them...then change the surface of those polygons to something similar to glass.

What you see is the outside of the cockpit. It looks like it's pieces of glass glued together. I want it to look like It's Panes of Glass connected by metal. so basically it's a metal frame shaped like a rollcage on the outside.

Oh ok. Just grab the cockpit...do a inset bevel and make those polys into a glass surface. You could then grab the outer polygons of the cockpit and do a smooth shift to add some thickness to the frame.

Or you can go ahead and just model and outer frame around the existing cockpit.

There's no "make cockpit" button in Modeler. It'll all depend on the design and how you want it to look.

OK I get it. Problem is, the geometry is tripled. how do I "un-triple" something?

I can't download it. is there a way that doesn't involve hyperlinks or downloads?

I suppose I could email you the file but I don't know what the EULA is so I'd rather not.

What's wrong with d/ling from the site?

never mind- I found a different way.
