Patterned Baseplates - Matthew Renner - 2019-06-30

Hi,

Is anyone here currently authoring or intend to author the following baseplates?

http://peeron.com/inv/parts/2552px3
http://peeron.com/inv/parts/2552px4
http://peeron.com/inv/parts/6024px2
http://peeron.com/inv/parts/2359px3


I've only recently submitted my first part and all the parts I've done via LDraw I do manually and, as you can imagine, is very time consuming.  For those experienced in designing official parts, is there a more efficient way to author elaborate parts such as these (with heavy detail), such as 3D scanners or some other software?  Thanks.

Hi Matthew,

http://peeron.com/inv/parts/2359px3 is already official: https://www.ldraw.org/library/official/parts/2359p02.dat

others unfortunately not. If you have hi-res pictures please post them.

Thanks

Thanks, had a feeling I overlooked one of them.

As to the others, the attached images are the best I can do.  I have these three other baseplates myself, but they're in storage.  Some models that contain them are:

2552px3, Eldorado Fortress (6276), Imperial Trading Post (6277)
2552px4, Rock Island Refuge (6273)
6024px2, Enchanted Island (6278), Pirate's Perilous Pitfall (6281)

2552px3 & 2552px4 are basically identical, the only difference being the rocks are different colors.

I have actually already made '6024px2' (the Islanders raised baseplate). It is not completly finished as I would like to subfile it differently and make different subfiles for the unpatterned version of the part. I actually made this years ago, but I did not upload it as I had a crazy idea that I would make all the raised baseplates that I owned and upload them at the same time. Obviously other things got in the way and I never finished them all Confused I will upload this in the next few days together with some others that is almost finished.

Beautiful, thanks!

I am curious, do you design your baseplates manually (i.e. each triangle, quadrilateral) or do you somehow read in the pattern?  How do you actually create the patterns?  Everything I've done I do manually, which is extremely time consuming.

I use 'Ldraw Pattern Creator' (developed by Nils Schmidt). It is the best tool for creating patterns Smile  I took a picture of every surface on the plate and used that as reference (easy to do in ldpc). This part was however VERY time consuming to do as it has so many patterned faces. I will try to finish it up and upload it to the tracker immediately

Really great! A pity you did not submit them earlier!

Do upload them!
