How to create 3D Spaceships with Blender and SpaceshipGenerator

The hidden power of our beloved and fun XNUMXD graphics creation and animation software is no secret to anyone. Blender, for something we consider that it should be in the Top 10: The Best Open Source Projects 2015. Well, the developers of the free Blender community have pleasantly surprised us by creating a script called SpaceshipGenerator, which is open source and allows us create Spaceships in 3D, easily and quickly. spaceships_grid

Not much to say about SpaceshipGenerator, is a script written by M and made in Python Blender that allows us to quickly and automatically generate science fiction spaceships for Blender. The results are quite good, with little work, a few tweaks and imagination you can get various models of spaceships to be used in animation, illustrations or games.

In the following animation we can see a step by step that shows how the script works SpaceshipGenerator
