No Man's Sky Starship

Explorer Starship from No Man’s Sky (Roughly based on the replica starship from explorer/collector’s edition). Modeled using the volume cube node and basic instancing with primitives like mesh line / grids. Rendered in Eevee, no textures were used besides this HDRI for lighting. Essentially, this is more or less done using only distance fields(distance/gradients > volume cube > volume to mesh).

.blend file for the project can be obtained here for free (requires Blender 3.3 or above)

Very cool! Played a lot of NMS, it has some neat ships and other hard surface designs (buildings, interiors).

Well done. At first sight I thought it was made in lego style. Cool.
