      Hy. I,m a new user of Delftship, It’s possible that the command doesn’t work in a free version, or I’m just a useless guy?
      Thanks

      Hola Carlos!

      Bienvenido en la comunidad de los utilizadores de FreeShip/DelftShip!

      The EDIT commands are enabled only after you changed something (UNDO), after you canceled an action (REDO) or after you selected a point or a polygon’s edge (DELETE). Until this, the buttons are greyed because thet’re just useless.

      Los botones de la seccin EDIT son utilizables unicamente después que hayas cambiado algo en tu dibujo (UNDO), después que hayas cancelado una accion (REDO) o después que hayas seleccionado un punto o una arista (DELETE). Antes de hayas echo una de estas acciones, los botones son grisaceos porque no son utiles.

      Perdoname mi español, me faltan muchas palabras, jé, jé, como a mi inglés 😛

      Your spanish it’s better than mine. I find your program very usefull, specially for people with no experience (like me). If you don’t mine, it’s possible I would bother you again.
      Thanks

      No problema, Carlos!

      But I’ve to mention that I am NOT member of the Deft developpement team, but just an user like you. I’ve been using DS for a longer time than you, that’s all. 😉

      I remember I was quite puzzled on the begining: my computer was too old to use the DS version on the time I discovered it, and Marven offered me the link to an older version.

      Now, I thinks I’ve to help the newbies (and the others, too :whistle: ). That this forum’s spirit, I feel.

      So, if you need more help, just create a new topic, put your question, and if someone (me or anybody else) feels helpful you’ll get an answer… or many answers 😉

      My weak point is I know absolutely nothing in ship design theorics (I prefer airplanes).
      My strong point is the 3D modelling.
      So I can help you using DS, but not designing a *good* ship.

      Here on this forum, there’s an other member who can be very helpful to you: Cruzmayora (He made real ships and he speaks spanish, too!).

      Hasta la vista!

      Hi,
      I’m also new here and I’m having almost the same problem as Carlos does.
      According to the tutorial to add a surface you need to Select Edit => Face => New from the mainmenu to add the new face.

      Although I see the menue “EDIT” I can only “undo” and “bin” the action. no “Face” 🙁

      Many thanks in advance for your help/suggestions

      Cristiano:

      To add a new face you have to select at leats 3 control points, when at least 3 control points are selected the icon “Face” will be available.

      Hope this helps

      Best Regards

      Hi cruzmayora,
      I am beginner in DF and I not understand what have in mind “The last column represents the height of the on each station” in manual on page 22. It is the sheerline or other line? My table of offset DF determined as “Invalid numeric input”. Where is my mistake? I worked with AutoCAD before. Thanks for any information.
      Best Regards

      It is not the sheer line, it is the keel line contour

      Hi Cruzmayora,
      thanks for the tip.
      in fact in the version 5 of DELFTship the surface menu is not under “Edit”… there is a dedicated menu that appears (you are right and thanks for your suggestion) when you select the 3 control points 🙂

      Maybe the tutorial will be updated 😉

      All the best
      Cristiano

      You are going to get better results if you use 4 points to define a “face”, the most you use 4 points for each face the better, althoutgh is not allways posible.

      Best Regards and good luck
