This is some fantastic style and tooling using Houdini to help procedurally generate aircraft right down to the rivets, nuts and bolts!

It's not open source, and I mentioned it in IRC, but I think it's a great tool to help artists if they're into Houdini, procedural generation etc.

Super-hi-res versions are available direct from NASA too https://settlement.arc.nasa.gov/70sArtH ... t/art.html

Also there's the book https://www.amazon.co.uk/High-Frontier- ... 8&qid=&sr= which is essential reading.

I wonder how much building the structures would cost, and how long it'd take, nowadays using revised real world cost estimates using SpaceX?
