Hi Bill.
Thank you so much for all that valuable information and links. I did dozens of google searches across several key words and viewed endless pages for governors connected to cross heads. Thus your post is very much appreciated.
I also browsed all the pages here at TM.com from p50 back to p1 and somehow missed those links. It was great though and I learned a lot.

I can't get a copy of the TTSM quite yet.
For now I'm relying on web searches and online literature for things I don't understand. As a result I know I'll be making a lot of mistakes which should be relatively easy to correct. When I purchase the plans in the future then I should be able to go back in to make changes and re-render them. I'll be posting progress renders now and then and critics are certainly welcome.

I began Newtek's lightwave 3D about 16 years ago purely on a hobby level. The software is phenomenal and was used in production flicks like Avatar etc.
My skills are far from perfect but I keep a good attitude and continue to learn.

This will be maybe my 5th(?) Titanic computer model.
The first one pictured above (In the water with the boat deck) was done to get a good practice with the software. Studying plans to figure out the various passageways between floors and visualize casings is fun and interesting. I wanted a more tangible way to see them so I began building the various rooms based on floor plans from the tank top to A deck.

That model stopped at A deck because I wouldn't be able to do much with the single polygon walls in the future.

The next project was to build another one like the last except to put more details in... hence the next model with boiler rooms with a goal to make photos and 2D videos of the inside. The hull was made, tank top, boilers, main high pressure lines, the pair of reciprocating engines, turbine and tunnel. The main generating room was in progress along with the row of breakers on the adjacent room above.

Then I realized I did so many wild mistakes. I built the layers incorrectly which would have made it time consuming to correct. So I started another one with an improved hull, cut out all the decks and that's as far as I got before I moved onto another project.

Then I got the 3D goggles last month and realized that it was the ultimate way to tour the Titanic. The ability to stand between the two main engines and watch them run, to look over at the auxiliary pumps (etc) to see them working is extremely exciting, So here I go again.

Thanks again Bill for the info and links. I have a lot to digest.
Enough talk, I have cylinders to redo!
