i would like to know if there is a way to create vertical cross sections at a specified distance perpendicular to the center line of a hull as to make a set of plans for ribs and stringers. im new to this software and am using the free version.

I don´t know if the free version can export to DXF, but that is a good way to export the cross sections (or import), then you can open it with any CAD software or even with the DWG true view which is a dwg files viewer (free) and you can take dimensions to have the cross sections dimentions.
Hope this info helps, Regards

You can export it either 2D or 3D, i prefer to export it in 3D, I feel more comfortable.

You can add a single station (frame) anywhere you like, then switch everything off except stations and print out the station or see its Offsets.

Welcome on board, Sujeethmo!
Indeed, you can easily get sections in all three directions (horizontal, longitudinal and transversal), plus the diagonal.
When the ships’ surface becomes parallele to the section’s plane, you get strange splines, so move it slightly (or avoid this superimposition by deleting the concerned section) in the sections’ dialogue box.
If you use screenshots to print, I sugest you draw a box around your model (there’s a button to draw basic shapes) thus the auto-zooming function will be locked on this box and you’ll get all your sections at the same scale.
