The Hydrostatic report in it’s right top corner indicates which is the Midship section location.

Now Delft ship have two options for this either you can put a value defined by the user or indicate as the 1/2 of the design length

This can be done in the Project settings menu, there is a tag named Main Dimensions where you give the main dimensions as per project, the Length is ussually the length between perpendiculars at the maximum draft, however you can choose which length to use and the software will calculate the 0.5L as the Midship section or you can give a fix value and the software will consider it as the fix location of the Midship section.

Just keep in mind that all values will be refer to the origin X=0, Y=0, Z=0.

Hope this info helps.
