Hello everybody, I am new, so please be polite, if i ask a question which was allready answered.
At the moment i am trying to design a racing sailboat which fits into Meter-Rule. Part of measurement is lenght of chain girth at two stations at hull.
Can anybody help me, how to measure that at delftship?
Hi, welcome aboard.
You can export the drawing in a .dxf file and use a polyline.
Menu Save > Export > 2D Curves > DXF 2D curves.
To export, the Stations must be ON and of course you have to position the stations were they are needed: Tools > Intersections > Stations > Add > …..
Then open the.DXF with a CAD (Autocad etc.), modify the station to draw the chain with a polyline then you can find very easily the lenght.
Cheers for now
