Tutorial: creating spaceship models with Shipwright and Blender

The creator of Entoforms evolves some spaceships

Shipwright is a Blender addon by the creator of Entoforms (previously covered here) that generates spaceships from a file full of existing parts and a user-inputted “DNA” string. The resulting models are complex, but they are printable.

I’ve just added a new tutorial to the Ponoko forums that covers how to use Shipwright.

(And check out 3D printing with Personal Factory if you want to print out your spaceship model.)
