IMO it has no bigger place in Canon then the above mentionet Millenium Falcon...
Uhhh...yes you can. It is called Computer Generated Graphics. Once the model frame is made, you can change it by smothing rough areas. Also, with a good programer, you can chop off sections, or add other polygons extrapolated from a surface.

I once saw someone use an engineering CAD program typically used for Large Diesel engines to build a highly detailed Galaxy-class Starship, complete with lifeboat htaches. That was just the exterior after only one day. I was told that given time, he could create an interactive 3-D model that could be manipulated down to the CM.

Have a little faith in the graphics team. They can sometimes do thinks that people believed impossible.
