What is the Starship Generator?
Add random scifi spaceships in Blender and export them to applications such as Unreal Engine. For concept artists and game developers who wish to create background 3D models for use in art, animation, or games.
See the overview video here.
See examples of the add-on on its Instagram page.
- Simply add a Starship model to your scene from Blender’s Add -> Mesh Menu.
- Create different designs just by changing a single seed number.
- Customize the Geometry Nodes set up in Blender: no custom code.
- Choose between panels added to the 3D model or an included Cycles displacement material.
- Change the material and increase or decrease object density.
- Collapse all the modifiers for a regular 3D model.
- Created with design theory in mind to ensure the shapes are visually appealing.
- Look at example .blend file setups provided including the full blueprint render set up seen here.

- Use the built in displacement material instead of 3D panels.
- Export the model into other 3D applications such as Unreal Engine. See this video.
- Add your own objects instead of the built-in ones.
- Use the Blender Remesh modifier to create a watertight model for 3D printing or sculpting. See this video.
"Making Of" Video Tutorial
Get an optional "Making Of" video tutorial showing how the Starship Generator was made in Blender using Geometry Nodes, Modifiers and Procedural Textures.
- The add-on can not create any type of spaceship imaginable; it is focused on creating long ships similar to the Sulaco from Aliens or the Rocinante from The Expanse.
- Best used for medium/background shots unless further modelling and sculpting is applied.
- Designed to be as fast as possible, but performance will vary from computer to computer when changing parameters.
- May cause the need to spend hours clicking through the seed values just to see which designs you get.
Under GPL you are free to use the Starship Generator in any of your work, commercial or otherwise, free. We’d love to hear how you are using it: Use hashtag #starshipgen and mention us on Twitter or Instagram.
