      I’m also trying to import .stl files with no luck. Is it even possible?
      I’ve been using photogrammetry to “reverse engineer”, and want to use the hydrostatic calculations in delftship. I have the models as meshes, but how do i get them into Delftship?

      Do you use the binary or the ASCII version of the STL file? (the latter should be readable when opened in Notepad or a similar program and is currently the only one that can be imported)

      The file I’m trying to work with now contains 67645 vertices, and 149999 faces. ASCII-file is 38,1 Mb. Is there any limitations in that area? What preparations do I need to do in Delftship before importing stl-file, – do i set project size etc.? Delftship Pro 5.26

      We were led to believe that it was possible to import meshes in several formats when we decided to purchase Delftship Pro, – but we cant figure out how to do it. Is it even possible? Is there anyone out there who managed to do this? – And if so, can you please, please tell me how you did it?

      I would really appreciate some help on this, as I’m about to give up on this whole software 🙁
