I would like to do simple required power/speed predictions for classic boats for which there are no drawings (for engine retrofit purposes, no design involved). For very simple input/generation of an accurate hull shape I could generate a mesh model of the boats with the Autodesk 123D Catch application. The formats that can be exported from the 123D Catch are:
– REALVIZ XML (.rzi)
– Alias|Wavefront Ascii Model (.obj)
– FEMA LIDAR (.las)
Just downloaded and installed Delftship and none of those formats seem to be native import formats if I have understood correctly. Would anyone be aware of conversion tools/software to convert any of those formats into a format that could be used as input to Delftship?
I’m not a boat designer nor programmer so looking for tools that require low skill and no programming.
Thanks for any advice! Håkan
