      Hi all,

      I am new to the software and I have created a model of a wide beam canal boat from scratch and I would like to understand if I have made some considerable mistakes on the  “Hull developable” and the Gaussian curvature, or any others you guys may identify.

      Also I would like to add a a rectangular keel (150* 6 mm)

      I HAVE ATTACHED THE MODEL AND ALSO SOME SCREENSHOOT.

      Welcome on board! 😉

       

      Search weel: there’s a button for inserting keels and rudders.

      Feed the tool with a few of data and the keel/rudder will be automatically added to your model.

      You’ll then have to move it to the convenient location (it’s inserted at coordinates 0,0,0).

       

      It’s a half keel/rudder added to the ship’s half-view. So, if you want two keels/rudder, you’ll have to order the software to draw the other side (symmetry modification button), to eventually give it an angle and  then to move it off the symmetry plane.

      The hardest point it to get the perfect shape on the very first step (span, chord, sweep angle, etc.).  :mrgreen:

       

      Without a sketch, it may sound confused, but if you already draw a model, you’ll quickly understand the thing. 🙄

      Note: I can see any screenshot (maybe a problem with my computer… 😕 ).
