      Hello,

      I model an old hull. Delftship generates a dark green problematic surface starting from the different stations defined by a text file. By removing this surface, I have a hole.

      How can I close the hull ?

      Thanks in advance

      Alexandre

      Hi Alexandre,

       

      First make sure that your control net is visible (Home tab, Hull display group, Control Net)

      Then add surfaces between (preferably) 4 points at a time. Select these points counter clockwise by holding down the Ctrl key when clicking on them. The “Add” button (Home tab, Face group) lights up as soon as a viable surface can be added. Do note that the order in which you select the points is important, and try not to use more than 4 points per surface. Use 3 if you have to.

       

      When done you can use the ‘Check Model’ function to correct any inconsistent normals.
