I admire your work! pls do a executor star dreadnought (super star destroyer).
Fractal’s very first 3D Model was an Executor-class (publicly available. If you want to check it, look at Fractalsponge’s “Untitled Document”
I have always wondered where all of the weapons emplacements are located on the Imperial Star Destroyer
What program was used to create this? Is there any way someone can buy the actual model so we can make renderings and just play with it? Yours is over-the-top beautiful. Excellent job.
its 3DS max
This model is one of Fractal’s only works which are publicly available. Look up ‘Star Destroyer 3D model’ and it’s usually the most popular and most downloaded. You can download it all over the place.
What is the difference between the Imperial I SD and the Imperator SD? Or are they the same. I’m confused.
I believe it is the same
Really the biggest differences between them are almost purely cosmetic. The main difference was the tower section between the deflector shield generator spheres on the command section. On the ISD 1 that tower is the tractor beam targeting scanner, while on the ISD 2 the tractor beam targeting sensors were moved to the two ventral hangar bays to increase their accuracy, and the tower between the shield generators was downsized and instead served as the main communications array. The version seen here is the ISD 2.
The differences between the ISD Mk I and ISD Mk II are not purely cosmetic due to the ISD Mk II having a much stronger reactor and thus stronger shields as well as a notable difference in the main weapons battery.
The ISD Mk I has a main battery of six dual heavy Turbolaser-Turrets and two dual heavy Ion Cannon-Turrents while the ISD Mk II has eight octuple heavy Turbolaser-Barbette Turrets instead.
In terms of visual differences the ISD Mk I and Mk II can indeed be most easily told apart by the shape of the upper command tower section.
The ISDs seen in Episode IV and Rogue One are ISD Mk I models while in Episode V and VI there are Mk I models.
As for the original question of the Anon above, there is no actual difference between the name “Imperator”-class and “Imperial I”-class.
It is the same ship-class, but the “Imperator”-designation was used by the Galactic Republic (yes, the Republic had Imperators close to the end of the Clone Wars, but only in small numbers compared to the Venators and Victories) while the “Imperial I”-moniker was the designation used by the Empire.
It was simply a renaming/rebranding.
So the ship seen above is actually an Imperial II Star Destroyer, as noted by the bridge structure and heavy turbolaser-barbette turrets, not an Imperator, which was the first line of starships produced by the Empire and also known as an Imperial I.
I made a mashup of one of the renders with the wireframe. Fortunately the size and angle were the same. http://imgur.com/a/R9yCk
Awesome, you should be hired to do star wars rebels and other star wars ship and vehicle designs.
A jewel! Thanks for this website.
Wow, your the truth! I’m simply amazed by your work!
Can we get a closeup of the main batteries on this ship? I’d love to see that detail…
That’s the coolest thing dude. Unbelievable
