DELFTship forum Hull modeling hydrostatics and transforms don’t work in the new Re: hydrostatics and transforms don’t work in the new


After about 9 hours of mucking about (with poor investigative skills), I began to notice some of my leak points had to do with having my transom on another layer. Also, I eventually figure out that my imported rudders were also leaks. Since I couldn’t easily fixt my rudders, I zapped them and the layer they rode in on.

Next night, rather, Monday night, I had a half idea to try the extend a deck tool. The name (renamed?) alone kept me from investigating it earlier. But, last night, with the separate transom (which was a royal PITA because everytime I edited the hull, I had to remember to turn on the transom layer and edit that, too, which probably is poor technique on my part, so my fault definitely) now gone, I decided to extend the transom edges to centerline. BAM! BINGO! WHALLA! My leak points were suddenly gone.

Also, remember to remove the check box for layers below the waterline if you don’t want them to be part of the hydros.

(Another bad (possibly bad) technique of mine in trying to create my transome whas the use of a plane to insersect two layers (plane and sideshell), and that created knots or swirls that would not be good at all in my CAD program. So, I need not go overboard expressing how happy I am that the deck tool saved my transom…)
