Re: Developable Surfaces

DELFTship forum Hull modeling Developable Surfaces Re: Developable Surfaces


i know this is a while ago but maybe you still need help.
i had the same problem. what i would do is start at the back by hilighting the furtherest aft line then in perspective i try and line the next line forward and see if the two are paralel. if they are not i play around with dimensions until i have the shape i want and the two lines are paralel in perspective view. then i procede to the next line forward lining it up with the 2nd from the back and do the same.
i have attached some pictures of what i mean. the pictures are not starting at the back but at the middle. you will need to do this for every flat surface before plate developments will unfold with no stress. hope fully you can understand.
