    Thanks, Maarten. That is what I have done. It can be done but it is painstaking work.

    Hi Maarten,

    I have the same problem as Graham above but the hull shape I am trying to replicate is not based on flat panels and so I cannot set crease lines.

    Is there a way to force the modeling to follow the control points?

    Thanks,

    In fact all I would really need at this point is for the plot function in “Tools/Lines plan/Plot” to split the lines plan into multiple pages so a normal A4 printer can give me pages I can glue together if I need to.

    Currently the drawing of a model that scales to a 36 cm long hull (a 3,6 m boat scaled 1/10) will not “plot” the left and the right parts of the drawing. I am working on another hull, this one 4,2 m. I will have the same problem.

    Is this something DELFTship Pro (which I have) would be able to do?

    Can you help?

    I will certainly use a dxf file to have the local printing services print me full size station lines of the 3,6 m hull when I am ready to build the real boat.

    Thanks Maarten. Good for next time.

    Can you suggest a free software that I can use to print DXF file full scale on a printer?

    OK. Nothing wrong with the DELFTship DXF file. Another reader was able to open the file without a problem.

    Sounds trivial but it stopped me dead for quite a while!

    The decimal point on input is the critical path!!! Even though DELFTship exports with decimal commas.

    I did the few adjustments that you suggested and it still did not load. But when I changed to decimal point it all went in. The table has data errors but the format is accepted. I made all the changes and so now I do not know which made the critical difference. I am going back and make one change at a time…
    The plot thickens…

    Note: when I exported the table it was exported with decimal commas. This had to be changed to decimal points for the table to load.

    That is it. Once in skype you start a conversation with nando.aidos
    That is it. You can leave a message if I am not online.
    My calendar is rather erratic and so I suggest you peek and we will eventually connect.
    Just keep in mind I am 8 hours ahead of you.
    Take care (of the mutts too)

    Ah, it is nando.aidos (with a dot, not an underscore) as I mentioned in my previous message.
    The underscore is for the DELFTship account.

    OK, you are in Oregon, 8 hours diff.
    How about 10:00AM your time. That will make it 18:00 for me 06:00PM.
    It should work. You msg me on Skype then and either we will connect voice or video.
    Will that work for you?
    Let me know.
    Take care.
