Just noticed something about this workup.  The Time Rotor is much smaller than the classic one; more online with the 1996 McGann Time Rotor.  Less of a headache to someone who actually wants to built it. 

I may have an excuse to build an actual consol room soon.  I'll probably steal some of this.  But it might be cool to see your virtual plans IRL.

Like the way your console room wraps around your console! With the supports, looks like a six-legged spider is crouching over it.

Do you plan on putting any controls on the arms between panels?

I love this console design,  The subtle influences you have thrown in are wonderful.    I personally like seeing the divider ribs clean as you have them, but that is just my personal preference as I like a clean look.  Anyway regardless of what direction you go this is one of my favorite designs for Virtual consoles.   I can actually see this as a very doable real world build.

 :o :o :o Are you building this in Sketchup? I haven't used it really for a number of years, so I'm unfamiliar with how easy / difficult things are to model in it now, or if it has any other tools added in, like rendering. Which brings me to my million dollar question: Can you render this? Would LOVE to see this in photo-realistic shot. If not, may I?

This is rapidly becoming one of my favourite designs :)

no I don't think I am, although I might try one repeating control (identical on each arm/divider )

God. I'd love too! I just have no idea how  >:( I'll have to figure it soon. I'm considering getting blender, as a friend of mine ( johntennant on here ) told me the new version is extremely easy to use and improved.

Yeah im not overly keen on blender but i must say i do like the new build 2.80 i think it is. Anyway back to the console room amazing i really like it the pillars that follow the lines on the console its great an the recessed control layouts . Again cant wait to see more

I use a freeware rendering program known as Kerkythea, which includes a plugin for Skype to export the model as an xml file. You can then replace Skype's materials with your own or something from one of their material packs.

http://www.kerkythea.net/cms/ for more info.

I've had some fun with it.

I will be getting back round to this console soon I've just got a new laptop and haven't transferred the files over yet

Bad news after trying to sign into my old laptop it decided to just kill itself out of the jealousy of me getting a new one. so i no longer have this build :(

Is the drive actually dead, or will the pc simply not boot? Have you had a technician take a look at it (assuming that you're not in IT yourself)? Coz just coz the pc or drive may appear dead, doesn't mean that data may not be recoverable from it... I could potentially help you there, although it would probably be difficult (though not impossible) being on the other side of the planet. Would like to help if I can because I REALLY don't want to see this build lost! ;D

I would recomend getting a usb drive caddy and put the drive into it.

Then you can plug it into your new machine.

In the cities in the streets there's a tension you can feel,
The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.
Politicians gamble and lie to save their skins,
And the press get fed the scapegoats,
Public Enema Number One.
