The Shipwright

by Mark Kingsnorth in Modifier Setups

Used in Star Trek: Picard by senior concept artist Igor Knezevic!

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:

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 GeneratorShape Generator, and Hull Texture) and creates a wider variety of shapes for use inside a design workflow.

  • The ability to add your own custom objects.

See the overview video here:

Version 0.0.8

  • 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:
