docking ring studies

So here’s a fun one!

Got a small section of Andre’s 3D photometric scan of the 5′ Falcon and started using it for the digital reconstruction.


We built a generic version of the docking ring…


Then I traced the armored plates onto the generic ring using the 3D scan as an underlay to get exact plate lines. The plates were added to the generic model…


Next the plates were digitally unrolled from the cone shape to make a flat pattern…
