I am using Solidworks and DelftShipPro (Just started).
How does one approach MultiHull (Trimaran) simulation in Delft.
I can do two seperate hulls Main and Ama simulate them individually but it seems like a very roundabout way to do it.
Ultimately one would want to heel the design and establish levels CG CB and draft at various heel angles.
Start modelling your outrigger. This can either be symmetrical or asymmetrical.
Then translate it off the centerline and model the middle hull as a conventional hull on the centerplane. Due to the symmetry both the outrigger and the center (half) hull will be mirrored by Delftship to get your complete boat.
Thanks, done it.
Delftship is fantastic easy to use. I move between Solidworks and Delftship with ease. The combination is awesome. Learning curve almost nil.
Then how do I get hydrostatics at different heel angles?
DO I rotate my whole model and redo reports?
It would have been nice if I could get a report at which trim the Tri would settle for different heel angles.
Would the inclined hydrostatics module do that for me?
