I have a question.
I have a blueprint of a navy ship which I want to build on scale.
Is it possible to insert the (pdf) file into the delftship program and copy al the lines so this would create a drawing which I can use for building my model?
1. Save your pdf as a jpg file.
2. Split you jpg into 3 i.e. Plan, Elevation and Body Plan ensuring the scale is the same for all 3 jpgs.
3. Import the jpgs as back ground images into Delftship after you have set up a new model whose parameters are those of the ship in terms of LBP, Beam and Draft.
NB Many Warships use the FP as Zero and number frames/sections upwards Fwd to Aft, whilst standard Commercial ships use the AP as Zero and number frames/sections upwards Aft to Fwd. This has significance where the ships midpoint is not 0.5 of the LBP.
