I need some help making a decision on the final iteration of the teeth.

Straight through:


Recessed:


The middle is hidden for a reason. Have fun agonizing over what I could possibly be doing!

Straight through, I do believe you still need to add some geometry inside that hole to make it look a little more functional.
What about sloped faces that meet somewhere near the center in some kind of pattern?

edit: if what you meant with the "middle" is the center of that toothed front then don't mind the second line of this post.

Recessed, unless you're planning on putting some geometry in the gaps. At present, the straight through makes the prongs look flimsy and prone to bending, IMO.

Looks like recessed is what I'm going with then.

I'm going to be adding a Bussard ramscoop to the area inside the teeth as well.

Oooo, I too like the recessed look. Looking forward to seeing what you're hiding in the middle!

P3D updated.

Added an arm to the docking clamp.

Testing out a possible escape pod placement as well. (Y'all are the judge of this one, yay or nay)

I spent some time making the Zephyrus manifold today. I aim to have it in the UV stage in 2-3 days.

Are you adding some additional geometry stuff on the main body, and the rear parts?
As it stands now it looks a little bland (maybe not bland, but "clean") there imo, compared against the containers and front part.

-edit.

Ah yeah, sorry about that. It's just you mentioned UV'ing I didn't want to just zip it until it was too late.

Keep it up! :yes:

Yeah I've been super busy recently so I'm actually pushing that deadline back quite a bit, probably around a full month.
