Jurgen, very nice work with that 40feet cantingkeel! I only suggest you to check the spreaders distribution 😉 .
Delftship free can perform heeled hydro but in a very basic way, and it will NOT do it over a range of heel angles, so the job can be done but being very patient. What I do usually is a simplified model having just the heeled hull and a 3Dpoint showing the CG position. All I do is rotate over “x” (heel), move up and down and trim (rotate over “y”) until CG vertically fits CB while displacement remain unchanged. Anyway, check this post for a Cp issue that DS shows when calculating hydro in symetrized objects:
