    Thanks Maarten,

     

    That was what I was missing.

    The manual was (for whatever reason) not sending me to the right direction (might be my shortcoming in not understanding all of the english terms of ship-modelling).

    The picture for ‘after fairing was missing; here it is:

    Hi Maarten,

     

    That’s a pity.

     

    Let me try to explain my case:

    I did design a hull, based on fixed x-values (position of ‘spanten’):
    Hullpositions-before-fairing-2020-01-06

    After fairing this hull, lots of positions have been changed, so it becomes difficult to place the ‘spanten’ in the right position:
    Hullpositions-after-fairing-2020-01-06

    As you can see some points have major different position (left or right side of the picture), while lot of point do have minor changes.

     

    Also look at another topic of mine, to put points which are used in one layer, on a curve of another layer:

    Maarten tanks for the reaction and explanation;

     

    Let me try to explain my problem;

    I did create a hull; see first picture, black color, and on top of that a ‘boeisel’ (bulwark??), first picture, red color.
    Points-to-align-03-2020-01-02

    In the ‘boeisel’ there should be an opening, of which one of the point is placed on exactly the same position as a point of the hull. This point however is a corner point, while the point used for the hull is not a corner point.

    The edge of the hull however is not a straight line, but bows to the x-axe of the model. This results in the fact that the corner-point of the ‘boeisel’ is placed outside the hull:
    Points-to-align-04-2020-01-02

    To show the points in the wireframe, see:
    Points-to-align-01-2020-01-02

    Right and left-bottom points are the same, but middle point is of the line.

     

    Now there is another corner point of the opening (left point of the opening), which was aligned with 2 points, shared by both the hull and the ‘boeisel’ and this point now is placed inside the edge of the hull.

    By trying to bypass this problem, and manipulate it manually, will end up in the result that points from the ‘boeisel’ are not on the same position as from the boeisel, and therefore will be reported as a problem-point.
    As well the folding of the plate will show some stress, due to the fact it is not a streaming line anymore.

     

    Similar as the above mentioned problem will happen, when beams are placed; these will stick through the hull and will be visible outside the model.

     

    I do hope this will explain the problem I did ran into.

    Thanks, I will wait for the implementation.

    Hi Maarten,

     

    Your suggestion is not what I mean; the added point is not on the same layer as the curve.

    The added point is at a new layer, and can be placed on the straight line between two points of the curve.

    However when that is done, it will create a leaking point.

     

    So I hoped there is a way to put the new corner-point on the curve itself, so the system recognizes that the point is on the curve and therefor, it is no leaking point.

     

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the reaction, but indeed that is how it should work.

    However in lots of cases it will also work with one point (or more) selected outside the first and the last selected. It will put the points into one line.
    In some cases however, it will not align the outer point to get it into one straight line.

    The option you did mention (copy) works fine when the point are in a straight ‘X’, ‘Y’ or ‘Z’ direction only, but not when the straight line is a combination of 2 or 3 of the ‘X’, ‘Y’ or ‘Z’ directions.

    Thanks for the response,

    I do use the 2012 Acad output format, opening it into a 2017 Trail version of Acad, and no shafts are appearing. Not in 2D, not in 3D, not in Mastership and not in Mesh Export facilities.

    In the 2D curves and Mesh, I do not see a way of pre-selecting layers; as far I could see, all the layers are exported. In the other, all layers are exported.

    The only solution I see is the ‘crease’ the axial edges, but then I will loose my required sizes. 🙁

    Thanks,

    PNG or BMP will solve (partly) the loss in resolution, but certainly, it will not solve my scaling problems.
    I was hoping on a possibility of transferring lines (dxf format?!?) out of a ‘Clip’ position into a 2D drawing program, but probably that is not available.

    If someone has a suggestion; please inform me.

    Thanks,

    Update (from my own site),

    I did change the heck to a symmetric heck, added a temp deck and then it went fine.
    This model I can use for calculations, but I’ll have to change it for real design purpose.

    Would be nice when Delftship would calculate with real design.

    Hello,

    In some cases, three plates are coming together in one point, but they are shown as ‘leak-point’.
    I do not see any problem, but I cannot get rid of it.

    As well I do not see a solution for a non-symmetric heck. Half of the heck in that case is ‘leak-point free’, but the other half, all points stay ‘leak-points’.

    Thanks,

    Thanks,

    But that will not solve my problem.
    The glass is on top of a ‘solid’ layer of steel. Making the glass transparant, I will still see the solid plate of steel behind it, and not inside the cabin.
    I still need to punch holes (windows) in the steel plate, and I do not see an easy solution for that.
    🙁

    Thanks Maarten,

    Although, it does seems strange to me. This due to the fact that every point can be allocated below or above sea-level, by comparing the ‘z-value’ with the ‘Draft-value’.

    However, the ‘check-model’ option, does give more than 2000 leak points, which is probably caused by using different layers for the different plates (‘multi-knik’ model). Although the different points have been given the same values for the same point ion the different layers.
    So I do not know if that procedure has finished properly and if the ‘above or below sea-level calculations’ has completed or even probable; it did not start at all.

    For the time being, I moved the plate to a separate layer, and I did change the color manually.
