When creating spaces with complex decor full of carvings and details, it’s necessary to relegate most of that detail to textures so as not to spend millions of triangles on a single carved panel. When a little extra dimension is needed, shader tricks can be used to give details the illusion of being 3D. The 1st Class Dining Saloon is one of the places these tricks are used. Just don’t get too close or else things will get trippy!

For those wondering about update videos, not to worry! We have a new one coming soon, and more in the pipeline as we move into next year! In the meantime, check out one of our last update videos, from July, if you missed it!

The July update video covers our attendance of Titanic at the Grand in May/June, general updates, and a little something neat we’ve been working on.

It’s not just the small things we print; we also tried our hand at the 21-light candelabrum from the 1st Class Reception Room! We already had a detailed model for the game, so it was a simple matter of putting it into a 3D-printing workflow instead. The result? A near-1:1 scale replica of the candelabrum, printed, painted, and wired by our marketing and printing man, Zeno Silva! Yes, that’s right, it’s wired and lights up.

In the process, we learned some new things about the candelabrum (including its true size) which we’ll incorporate into the game model. The same can be said for much of what we print, as working things out in detail for printing and handling physical objects often leads to new ways of looking at these objects.

With the help of our marketing man, Zeno Silva, we’ve paired our digital work with the power of 3D printing to bring bits of Titanic into solid reality! In addition to our 3D-printed ship models, we offer a growing selection of reproduction items including these signs. The lifeboat plaques are printed at 1:1 scale, and purchasing the full set gets you a bonus hardtack reproduction! The plaques are currently on sale on the THG Store!

Curious about how people aboard Titanic ate in the different classes? Historian David Kaplan, a friend of the team and fellow presenter at “Titanic at the Grand” in Mackinac, MI, walks us through the dinner settings of the three classes aboard Titanic. He explains how the table is set, how the dinner is organized, and what the role of every table item is.

Yes, we’re still here and working hard to bring Titanic to life, and as our team churns a path forward and into 2020 with new-found fervor, we plan to keep the updates moving!

Forty years ago, using what he could find in libraries and other media in an age before the internet, a talented 15-year old began building a giant cutaway Titanic model, displaying the ship’s interiors, furnishings, and machinery in great detail. Later he would go on to build one of the Lusitania and an even more amazing model of the Normandie. Today, with the internet and a whole new age of Titanic information at his fingertips, Father Roberto Pirrone, now a Catholic priest in the Los Angeles area, is building a brand new cutaway model of Titanic with all the latest findings, including discoveries and details fleshed out by T:H&G’s efforts.

In this 40-minute interview, T:HG’s Tom Lynskey talks with Father Pirrone aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California. Father Pirrone walks us through his processes behind these magnificent models and the details that went into them and discusses his new model with a few previews included.
