You could try the following:

  • First mirror your model around the center plane so you have both sides of the geometry modeled
  • Then switch off the symmetry settings for all the layers you have just mirrored. This ensures the software doesn’t mirror these layers againg during the calculations.
  • Rotate the model around the longitudinal axis
  • Finally you can try to find the new draught by iterating between a minimum and maximum draught until your displacement matches the original design displacement
