      HI
      How to create a cylindrical tank.

      The best way is to model it in the hull modeler (make sure to add it to a separate layer which is excluded from the hydrostatic calculations!) Also make ensure it is correctly closed. From there you have 2 possible ways to go:

      • If you need to add the tank only once, create a new compartment with the correct dimensions. Finally change the layers used for this compartment by deselecting all layers but for the one containing your tank shape.
      • The second option is to export the layer to the tank model as an externally defined tank. Using this method you cannot change the shape of the tank, but you can use it multiple times by specifying an offset (and optionally a scale)
