What is the Shipwright?
The Shipwright is a Blender add-on for 3D modelers, game developers and concept artists. It uses "Big Medium Small" design theory to automatically create Sci-Fi shapes and parts for further editing or sculpting.
You'll also get the full functionality of the following add-ons at a discount:
Once installed, get started with the ready-made Blender file:
It also comes with this bonus helmet set up you can also explore:
Browse the documentation for a full list of features, including:
- Dynamically change parameters and the objects will automatically update.
- Use the Levels interface to customize parameters and scatter layers of objects.
- Use Custom Objects and not just generated ones.
- Collapse the object ready for export to other applications.
- Generate many different variations overnight using the Iterator feature.
- An editable lattice deformation cage is created and attached for further shape changes.
- The default materials can be changed to suit your needs.

Pre-requisites and requirements
This uses my other add-ons:
Shipwright will come with all these add-ons as standard, but please note you will need all of the above add-ons for Shipwright to work.
Already have the add-ons? If you have already supported me by purchasing these, see the pricing options to get the core set-up without certain add-ons already bundled. Please check you select the right option, as the set-up will not work without the required add-ons.
If you have any questions before purchasing, contact me via the 'Contact Creator' button on my main Blender Market page.
How is the Starship Generator different?
The Starship Generator is focused on quickly creating non-hero Spaceship assets. The Shipwright is a bundle of my other add-ons (Plating Generator, Shape Generator, and Hull Texture) and creates a wider variety of shapes for use inside a design workflow.
Version 2.0.0 comes with a host of new features:
- Easier installation process.
- A new user interface.
- Greater customization.
- Baking and exporting.
- The ability to add your own custom objects.
See the overview video here:
Performance Improvements: Based on some work in Houdini, a setting has been introduced to control where faces have the Plating Generator effect added:
This will only select faces with an area above a specified value. Adding plates to too small a face was causing performance issues and harming topology.
Texture improvements: I have added some improvements to the default texture to add better specular effects:
