Imported the shuttle into DS4 pro and Poser9 meanwhile and fiddled around with material room / texturing. (As already mentioned, I am not to familiar with both programs so far). I was not yet aware of just having only one collapsed shape with the whole object as one after import. Hard enough to find the right values / settings to have things looking similar to Vue-, Carrara- or Bryce versions. As I have few time at the moment because of job a.s.o. - I am in correspondence with Anthony Appleyard (Renderosity forum freestuff provider), who has made a basic Poser character of the shuttle with dials/switches for turning gadgets tower, switching between landed and flying option (having the landing gear or propulsion / hyperfield either hidden or not. I am just applying materials to the non UV parts of that character, but still am facing some issues…

The bulges and bends (at least with Poser) can be eliminated best on a crease angle of 80 for the respective parts (worst edge bulging occured with the outer airlocks, I guess). After import to Poser I found a default crease angle of 140 (!) for each single part. Way to much, don`t ask me why Poser does this… raspberry

DAZ COLLADA export from Carrara is a good idea! I never tested this before, but am glad to hear that this works. So I will take this into account with the modules, could save a lot of wasted time… wink

Hey, what ever happened to the DAZ/Poser version of the Beaver?? Come on, Spacebones, I reserved space in my runtime!

I was going to ask, too.  This might be just what I am looking for.

Hi Folks,

sorry for my absence on this topic, but my job does not leave me to much time so far, this year. ..

@Casual: thank you! Got me those scripts and will give them a try with Version 2.0 of my shuttle ( and for sure with some future cockpit stuff or so)
Great stuff on your site!!

This Project is NOT dead, promised!

Just so you know I used your Beaver in the freebie contest. It got 2nd place so now you can say it’s a winner. Looking forward to rev 2.

Thanks Dorsey! I was shooting for that 100 bucks of DAZ cash. Maybe next month.

Spacebones, you can see the competition here:
http://ovbi.org/gallery/v/FreebieChallenge/
Look for the May challenge. If you click on a picture it gives you a url list of where the freebies came from that were used in the piece. It is a nice way to highlight all of our wonderful artists that provide the community with freebies. There is an accompanying thread here in the Freepozitory each month.

Hope the previous answered your question.
