      Have almost finished a hull model when program inserted dozens of extra control net points. The extra ones have been placed between every original control point. They are not coloured as the other ones are, but do move and behave in same way.
      This has made it impossible for me to make further changes as it is chine hull and the lines between control points must be straight.
      How do I get rid of these unwanted control points?

      Hi jhlean,

      These points are most likely the result of forgetting to de-select edges before you perform a Split action- quite a common thing to happen. You can collapse the unwanted points: The collapse button is in the point menu (take care that you don’t accidentally use the edge collapse!)

      Thanks, I tried that but nothing happens. Collapse button is highlighted but the point remains.
      I’m pretty sure I didn’t perform any Split action. These unwanted points are between ever single pair of coloured control points with additional grey coloured lines joining them.

      Ah, you can’t point-collapse points that have more than two edges connected. In that case you first need to edge-collapse the edges you do not want.

      If you didn’t use the split function, you may have used the ‘Subdivide control net’ function; DELFTship does not arbitrarily insert edges and points…If you think something else has happened, please post a screenshot explaining what the problem is.

      Thanks, that edge collapse worked and I got rid of all those excess lines/edges and their associated points.
      If I did hit the subdivide control net function, it must have been accidentally …
      Many thanks for your help.
