      I’m not sure what I’ve done, but I am having some major difficulties getting the hull to divide up at the frame stations.

      I did a model a while back, divided into 26 frames. I compiled sections of the hull, divided at frames, to split it up to unfoldable sections, divided precisely along the frame stations (X coordinates).

      It looked something like this when I was finished:

      I am now working on modeling another hull, and I seem to be having great difficulties getting the hull sections to divide precisely at the frame stations.

      Here is an example showing what I am talking about:

      What can I do to force the layer to follow precisely along the edge of a frame station, at a specific X coordinate line?

      I’ve tried everything, and I’ve never seen this before.

      Please help!

      Surfaces assigned to a layer, follows boundaries of interior edges – as seen in “interior edges” wiew, so to achieve a desired subdivision you must work on the “mesh” i.e.: set “crease” edges or subdivide the net until a proper surface control is obtained – hard work on bulbs or stern appendices – sorry, that’s all folks.
      to my knowledge almost, Bye, Jurgen.

      Thanks, Jurgen…

      I think I’m going to try setting a crease on each station where I need a clean division, and see how that works.
