      Hi, my name is Ben and i am a few issues with editing my drawing, i am designing a power boat so want hard chines and folded edges, but i can only get rounded ones :angry: reading the manual it says to select the lines and edit=>edge=>crease, problem is edit function is either delete or un/re-do…

      im very new to this and trying to search the forum has not working for me…

      Hello Ben,
      Your hull is quite irregular in the bow and chines and it still needs a lot of work. I don’t know what kind of work boat you are aiming, but I tried to play a little bit with the crease edges and clean some edges to check if I found something useful. Have a look.
      In any case, if you want to define knuckle lines or chines, you just have to select the edges and turn them into crease edges.

      PS: Try downloading power boats from delftship database. There are quite a few very interesting for your work.

      Hope this is of some help.
      Regards,
      Sergio

      cool, cheers for that

      this is what i am desgining my boat for: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVCkcDClamQ&feature=player_embedded powered by jetski engine the reason for the delta recessed is because when you go over shingle the stones get jammed into the grill reducing the units performance.

      Hi again, am i missing something or is the PDF manual not the same for the free version of delfship? reading thru the 6-delfship and 8-hull modeling they don’t seam to be the same as the program i am using.

      im trying to create layers so i can have individual panels for a cutting list.

      regards Ben

      Click on the new layer command found on the layer section on the toolbar… the one in the middle with a little green plus sign on it.

      open to comment, i think the bow entry is a little steep, im going to tow it behind another boat to see how it cuts thru the waves etc.
