Hi, I'm really interested in building a TARIS interior in sketch up but I have absolutely no idea how to make one! Do you think you could give me a few tips on how to make the console?

Thanks

I put a brief tutorial for the basic console shape here...

Hey Atoms,

Just read it, I was able to figure out how to do this, the only problem I had was I don't know how to angle the panels. Normally you would have the bottom of the panel attached to the edge of the console and then the opposite side of the panel would be angled up to the top of the console just underneather the time rotor, just as you have done on your tutorial. My question is how do you angle the panels? My panels just seem to stay flat and whenever I get on side right the other follows and refuses to be angled.

Thanks a lot

Rob

I am following your guide for building a tardis console and i was wondering about the lengths, you've said the hexagon you started with has a diameter of a foot and a half, but the shown lengths say it has a radius of 1 and as half feet, for the larger hexagon, is the lengths in diameter or radius.
At the fall of the great, true fear and resentment will be felt.
